Trust me people, this is sheerly hypothetical. I have seen enough of you guys thinking this should happen. So I want to get the pulse of the people...Do we really want this to be a reality? I mean I am probably the biggest Cleary slappy in here. A Wings team with Cleary is better than without, imo.

He was supposed to fill the void left via free agency and was banged up ALL season long ... so his play was more under the microscope than in past seasons ... a healthy cleary is a goal scoring cleary

Cleary's value to the team is higher than anybody's that we could potentially trade for, imo. He's coming off an injury-filled season and his stats (and value to other teams) will reflect that. He's also a player that had developed a bad reputation in organizations not named The Detroit Red Wings. Thus other teams aren't going to want to part ways with much. I say hold onto him and lets see what he can do this year when he's (hopefully) healthy for 82+ games. He seemed pretty optimistic in his last interview about next season.

All I know is that Cleary better have a beastly season or there will be no excuses at this time next year.

exactly... he has a down year and plays through injuries like a warrior and people get on him!?!? the man is a true warrior and we should be grateful to have him... how quickly people forget 08... anyone who says yes should be ashamed of themselves and is an idiot...

Absolutely agree, but I also think a season without injury will do him tons of good.

Hell no.

Dan Cleary is exactly what you want in a hockey player. Clears is one of the most versatile guys we have. He is a Jack of All Trades. He can effectively bang and grind on the fourth line, bang grind and score on the 3rd line, create space, bang, score and back check on the 2nd and 1st lines. More versatilve than anyone else we have.

I've seen too many games where the Wings came out flat except for Dan Cleary.

Unless he's injured again.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

a wings team that could trade cleary for a pick and sign andrew ladd (or adam burrish) is better than a wings team with cleary. cleary's best days are now behind him, and his hands are made of stone.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

*facepalm* my friend, no....

Adam Burish or Ben Eager are nothing near the player Cleary is. These hands of stone are 1 year removed from a 9 goal playoff and the injury was the knee. Fail but thanks for the input.

Even if you do want to trade Cleary, you'd be selling low on the guy. I'm waiting to see if he can turn it around when fully healthy.

Dan Cleary is by no means irreplaceable but I really doubt we could get full value for him when he's coming off the injuries he's had.
