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.

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.

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.
