"John Ferguson Sr. Clarke led the Flyers in scoring during his sophomore season 1970–71 with 27 goals and 36 assists for a total of 63 points in 77 games. ' I didn't think twice about it.
One of the game's great leaders Clarke was the captain of the notorious Broad Street Bullies during their heyday in the mid-1970s. The latter some say is exemplified best by Clarke's infamous slash to the ankle of Valeri Kharlamov during the Summit Series in 1972 which is still a source of controversy to the present day. He resigned from the GM position less than a month into the 2006–07 season and is currently the Flyers Senior Vice President.
