Clarke Tells TheFourthPeriod.com

Though you heard many rumors about what will Clarke do by the usual sources you hear about everyday, I took a look at www.thefourthperiod.com where Flyers GM Bobby Clarke was interviewed by TFP.GM Bobby Clarke denies he is going to play in the free agency market. The General Manager states:

“We’re not going to free agency,” said Clarke. “We’ve got (Keith Primeau, Jeremy Roenick, Michal Handzus, Marty Murray and Jiri Dopita). We’re pretty strong down the middle.

“I have no reason to look for another goalie,” he added. “We’re very happy with (Roman) Cechmanek. We’re not going above $56 million (in payroll).”

Also, GM Clarke did comment on Jiri Dopita’s status: “Teams are interested in Dopita.” TFP also was told by Clarke that he will not trade Eric Desjardins and Keith Primeau. The GM said “We’re not trading them.
