Bobby Clarke no great

Ed Vanderwoude, Hamilton, Ont.

I enjoyed your special issue, The Top 100 Players of All-Time by Position, but I find it troubling that Bobby Clarke continues to make these lists.

This is a guy most famous for breaking Valeri Kharlamov's ankle with his stick in the ’72 Summit Series.

Kharlamov, of course, being one of many Russian players who possessed skill that Clarke could only dream of having.

Thankfully, the game is in good hands now and with a lot of stars coming up, this should take Clarke off any “greatest player” lists within a decade.
