Bobby Clarke Bobby Clarke quote - prior to the exhibition game between the Central Red Army team and the reigning Stanley Cup champion Flyers (Philadelphia won the game 4-1), Clarke claimed "(the Soviets) complain about the ice, the practice time. They show up late, they don't like our gifts. They're always trying to play with our minds. But that won't work with our club. We've got 20 guys with no brains."
