im sure any GM will be public enermy #1 if they do that to clarke, not only are they stealing players from philly knowing the flyers are vulerable, but they'll also be driving up RFA salary. but GMs arent hired to make friends w/ other GMs, so if its the clubs best interest to sign esche, the club should do it.
btw, bertuzzi is back!! finally! i thought he deserved a few more games, but as a nucks fan im happy hes back playing for vancouver and canada. having bert the whole season will make us the favorite for the division champ, me think.
and gretzky's first regular season game behind the bench will be against vancouver, dat'll be awesome, i think he'll do ok, if they get a good goalie it'll make gretzky's coachin looks alot better.
