True. Usually when Clarke says he isn't going to trade for a guy or move on of his own he's BS'ing. However in this situation I think he's telling the truth. He doesn't want to move Umberger. The kid is a freaking workhorse. I love this guy.DelPen wrote:Clarke lies about trades all the time. Someone asked him a few years ago if he was interested in Dale Hawerchuck. He emphatically said no. 90 minutes later Dale was a Flyer.
LOL! Old Clarke would, but for some reason I think he's serious about not wanting to trade the three young bucks. If RJ goes anywhere I'll admit I was wrong I just don't see him pushing the panic button this year. He made some strong moves last trade deadline. The only way RJ goes anywhere is like I said for a big name. Other than that Clarke picks up a guy like Barnaby or Geoff Sanderson and RJ stays.ville5 wrote:Clarke would trade his own grandmother, who are you kidding? I think Clarke's throwing up a smokescreen here. By saying he won't trade RJ, Clarke's trying to make other GM;s believe RJ is more valuable than he is.
