Cleary looked like absolute garbage tonight. Maybe he'll get it together eventually. But he certainly doesn't need to be getting it together on the second line. Bad enough that the first line doesn't really work without Pav. Can't afford to kill the second line with Cleary.

Either call up Nyquist, or bump Mursak to the second line.

It was Cleary's first game back after missing five, and it's a fair bet that he was off his feet for much of the time he missed.

Lol some of you fans crack me up. The guy just got back from injury of course he's gonna look like s*** being he was dead tired. Cleary is one the wings biggest hustlers when it comes to speed a nd getting to those loose pucks. Go to a wings game and actually watch the players you'd see that. If u wanna talk about anyone looking like s*** try holmstorm who once again took a stupid penalty and couldn't check if he life depended on it.

Why is everyone so high on Mursak? Besides skating fast, he doesn't really do much.

I'd love to see Nyquist up, but it won't be because of Cleary.

What game were you watching? He lost his legs in the 3rd, and was still faster then Hudler. Some people always need something to complain, just join us cool guys and ***** and whine about toughness instead alright? :thumbup: :hehe:

Realistically?

This.......

Franzen - Datsyuk - Bertuzzi
Filpulla - Zetterberg - Hudler
Abdlekader - Helm - Miller
Cleary - Pahlsson/Gaustad - Homer

is closer to what you’ll see.

If Nyquist is called up he'll play maybe 5 minutes on the 4th line.

This. I definitely think he's better off with more limited mins until he's back skating like he normally does, though. I wouldn't mind seeing Tatar get his shot on the 2nd line (the poor guy's had two call-ups nixed during the pre-game skate). I definitely like Fil better on the wing but with a little time he'll get back into the centre groove.

What game were you watching? He lost his legs in the 3rd, and was still faster then Hudler. Some people always need something to complain, just join us cool guys and ***** and whine about toughness instead alright? :thumbup: :hehe:


Leave Hudler's foot speed alone. Once Holmstrom retires the guys nursing sore legs will need someone to skate with at practice.

Right.

11 goals, 27 points. one each less than Bert. plus Cleary plays on the PK. And tonight coming back after a knee injury.

He may not be having a career year, but he's hardly s***.

Lol, what a dumb thread. As already pointed out (and should have been obvious to any Wings fan) last night was Clearys first game back after being out.

By your logic, we should get rid of Jimmy too since he lost last night.

Yeah dude, because those 6 minutes a night are really giving the ability to show his true worth.

Ken Holland: He’s (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, he’s a puck hound.

Realistically? For it to be realistic don't the guys in bold have to actually be on the team?

Right.

He may not be having a career year, but he's hardly s***.


I don't get the hate either, clearly not his best season but he's still on pace for 15-20 goals, what were we expecting from him? I thought he showed some good strides a couple of times last night..lets be honest , no one was good last night except for Howard.

I don't know why this isn't getting more attention (maybe because everyone is fine with it because he's timeless) but I agree 100%. If we re-sign him it will be a waste of cap... however I don't know how much we'll lose in team chemistry if that happened.
