That a Euro was waived isn’t a shock–Bobby Clarke would run a completely Euro-free organization if he could. What is, however, surprising to me is that he decided to scapegoat two guys that are serviceable (though not great) along with that Euro (who is arguably the worst one on the whole Flyers roster)…and left Derian Hatcher and Mike Rathje alone.
I’m sorry, but who thought that those two tree-stumps were worth the money and length of contract that Bobby the Brainless gave them? Chancellor Franco Liao could skate faster and play better defense than those two lugs (not to mention put the claws to the asses of the forwards when they’re doggin’ it), and he’s been dead and cremated for two years! Even my husband, who hates hockey and pitches a holy fit every time I even so much as look at a pair of skates, can play better than the two anchors that Bobby Clarke has draggin’ down the Good Ship Philadelphia.
Memo to Comcast: Fire Bobby and get a GM in there who actually knows what he’s doing. Just sayin’.
