/END Thread


:thumbup: This. But this doesn't even tell the whole story.

Already did a thread polling the entire negative ass LGW world and couldn't even get more than 25% to say yes. Granted I got called out on that one stating that Kenny Holland and Jim Nill do not look at LGW and if they did would probably want to shoot themselves with some of these insane ideas/trades. Clears is a warrior. Brings waaay more to the table that a 100% Eaves/Miller couldn't match if they wanted to and its just plain fact in talent. He has an incredible to create even with said lack of stick skill and or hands. He just goes balls out every single shift regular season or playoffs it doesn't matter. He demands respect simply on play and play alone and not to mention when a guy like Cheli recommends a dude, something has to be there. And as we have seen over the past 4 years the guy has done nothing but give his all. I realize there are countless guys that bust ass night in and out and I am not saying Clears is on his own with that. But give him this year, a 100% Clears brings way beyond what anybody else thinks. See 09 playoffs. Torn meniscus. Now I know I haven't torn anything in my life but he played through it and yeah he was unnoticeable. But lets think before automatic trade thoughts please.

even in his good seasons...

does cleary really bring something (something worth 2.5 mil extra) to the table that eaves/miller don't?

Miller sucks.

Eaves is decent.

Cleary was putting on an almost conn smythe worthy playoff run 2 years ago. Cleary has been hurt 2 seasons, he played through 2 torn meniscus this season and was still abetter player then Miller, and last Stanley cup finals he played through a torn groin and broken hand.

Yeah I think he brings something the other 2 don't....

Cleary is staying, NTC makes it hard to move him even if we wanted to.

Does anyone else have the craziest sense of Deja vu? I swear I read this exact thread with the same first 3-4 posts a couple weeks ago.

Not a joke....seriously asking?

It was a poll. This isn't the same, and it's not even close :P

He was all banged up last year.

He provides front net presence, PK ability, defensive play and physicality along with 20 goals when he is healthy. His impact is felt much more off the score sheet then on.

Now if he struggles to get the puck in the net by the trade deadline then I can see trying to shop him around, but that will be a hard thing to sell.



Haven't seen Cleary stand around the net nearly as much as he used to before he took a puck to his eye/cheek. (Which was also a season or two ago which he was out of the wings lineup for a while) whoever says he only got injured this year and he usually plays most games was wrong.
Not now chief, I'm in the zone.

Enough of your damned line threads.

I see you've ignored the responses to you in this thread. Figures.

As for Cleary being in front of the net: see game four against Pittsburgh in '08, when he was the one who screened Fleury on the first goal. See game five against Chicago in '09, when he was the one who finally beat Huet to give the Wings the lead. And so on. You're blowing hot air.

Further, it's really the coaching staff's decision as to whether or not he's the one on the ice who screens the goalie. It's not like he makes the decision himself. And with Franzen, Bertuzzi and Holmstrom on the team, he's unlikely to be the one.

I guess that most Cleary-haters haven't read the articles which clearly state that his knee was in so much trouble that for most of this year he could hardly walk up the stairs.

Give the guy a chance.

Did you catch the 09 playoffs? The only goal Dano scored that was further then 5ft from the crease was Game 5 against Pittsburgh. All other 8 were screens, tips or bang in's.

Just a few points:

-- Cleary's NTC makes trading him very difficult (not impossible).
-- Cleary makes almost 3 million and is at his lowest trade value in the last 3 years.
-- When healthy Cleary is tough to replace (scores, checks, kills penalties, can play net-front on the PP).
-- Cleary works in this system. An incoming FA might not.
-- Why is it that every day you post a new thread on a topic that's already been discussed at length?

Is it time for the draft yet so we have something to talk about other than should we trade Cleary, Stuart, Raffi, Filppula, etc?

All of the line combo threads from blueadams were kind of funny at first, but now it's just getting annoying. We're at what, like 5 or 6 in under a week? It's getting old and just cluttering the forums.

Also, there's already (at least) one other thread clearly about Cleary.
