    Philly wouldn't win the cup even with Lindros because their goaltending isn't good enough.

    Good call though, Clarke is a total dick and how he keeps his job is beyond me. Doing a job like that, it just can't become personal, and Clarke has let it become just that.

    At the same time, Lindros really needs to get someone other than his father to be his agent. A general manager has got to be able to tell an agent that their client is acting like a prick, but when it's a family member like you're son, you're not going to be able to hear that with the same distance and clarity as you would if it was just a client. I think that's caused a lot of problems too.

    i mean this guy is a real prick.

    i'm not a philly fan, but c'mon now, give it a rest. he has nothing to gain by keeping lindross. what does he think? that roenick is gonna give him a cup? right! playoffs will roll around and they'll get knocked out again.

    if they trade lindross, at least they can get yet more players, but clarke holds a grudge.

    too bad clarke will never bring philly a cup.

    I will agree Clark is a class-A Prick but Erik Lindros has not handled the situation that well either.

    Erik owes Philly one more year am I correct??
    If so then he owes them that, he signed the contract! I am tierd of athletes signing contracts and then wanting out of them.

    When Lindros said I will only play for the Leafs he tied Phillys hands, they were fucked!

    All involved have acted like spoiled kids. [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]
    ((Just My Two Cents))
    And thats about what its worth.

    i wouldn't say asshole, but simply a dumbass. he's mad at lindros, but he can get plenty of good players for eric.
    the flyers won't win anyway, and eric's not gonna play next year if he's still with them again, so they both are being stubborn about the whole thing, and it's not solving anything, no matter what they say.

    Clark is a hard core GM, no doubt.

    What a hell of a player and competitor in his day. Clark played hard all the time. Looks like his GM skills are no different.

    The Flyers really need to resolve this though. It has to be a distraction to the team.
