Well it might not get much better but it really can't get any worse. I care so little about this team, kind of like New York Islanders... I smile when they lose.

According to this NHL.com article, his reasons for resigning have to do with burnout. He says that he was a bystander and let Holmgren sign Geoff Sanderson because he had a previous relationship with him. He said he wanted to avoid controversy. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Since when has Clarke wanted to avoid controversy. Sounds like he is passing the blame for building such a bad team.

Everyone has had a day to digest this mess in Philly. So what do you think? My take is that Clarke was probably told to resign by the owner. Since he was a Hart trophy winner and Stanley Cup champ as a player, he was given the chance to save some face in the city that still adores him. I am glad both Hitchcock and Clarke are gone, but their assistants took over so I don't see how much will change.

Maybe this is Karma getting back at Clarke for the insane offer sheet given to Ryan Kesler.
