All the homer's (in this case Cleary lovers) clearly can't objectively evaluate this team.

Who is a Cleary lover here? Who has stated they love Cleary?

Pretty much everybody gets that it stinks that he is struggling probably primarily because of being injured, but only a select few thinks he has stunk from minute one on the extreme end.

The only people that say stuff like *insert player's name* lovers are the ones that have an extreme disliking of the guy with negative bias alone. That's not really all that objective either.

“As far as being fluid as a group, I don't think we are good enough at this point,'' Babcock said.

“All of the guys that have been injured are going to get better, and we’ve got to keep playing them.''

Someone on LGW loves Cleary???? How could this be?? Who is it??? Didn't they hear NBC explain how Cleary shoulda been cut years ago? I'm amazed the guy is still in the NHL actually after reading this thread. He's seriously terrible. I think its a bit odd that the hockey team with the best eye for talent in the whole league would ever even consider him...quite strange. I mean its not like he is a grade A team guy or a great locker room presence, he's more like locker room cancer!!!...I believe somebody said something about his lack of intensity as well...dont get me started on that one, he is sooooo lazy, never back checks, never forechecks, never five checks, never side to side checks....pretty much the last phrase i would ever use to describe dan cleary is "one of the hardest workers on this team" yup i would definitely never describe Cleary in that way. He's also been struggling with injuries this year LOL what a nancy-boy cleary is. HATE HIM.

did i also mention i hate Floatzen, Ericsson, Hudler, Bertuzzi, Holmstrom, Kindl, Emmerton, Conklin, Abby, ANDDDDD Miller. How are these guys still on this team??? and how do we keep doing so well with all these joke hockey players on our team????

I used to HATE val fillpula too because, u kno, hes just another soft euro who doesnt shoot the puck enough....but hes having an up year this year so now i suddenly love him.

pretty much the only acceptable players we have are lids, dats, z, and howie.....everyone else should be traded for draft picks...cleary doesnt have much trade value so we should just cut him and fill his roster spot with Daigle....been hearing he wants to make a comeback to hockey. ahhhh Daigle, now thats a premium hockey player.....everything that cleary is not.

No -- Lidstrom is a shadow of his old self and needs to retire for the needed cap space, Zetterberg's back has made his contract an albatross (see first half of this season), Datsyuk is getting old with injuries taking an obvious toll (only 5 pts in 8 gms since coming back from injury) and Howard is too inconsistent, with poor rebound control and never taken a team past the 2nd round.

I say gut the team... Maybe keep Helm, but he is starting to seem pretty injury-prone.

And I thought Daigle has been playing in Switzerland? Regardless, I'm on board.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

Are you a Fkn Sharks fan??

Gut the Team?

Get rid of D?

Whoever +'d your post is an idiot.

Lets break this down.

Howie got hurt for 2 months ish and all of a sudden hes worthless? Lets just forget that he singlehandedly saved the team from missing the playoffs, led the league in wins this season and is considered one of the best goalies in the league....

Yep Howie, GONE!!

Pavs, Voted best two way player by OTHER PLAYERS, is a perpetual highlight reel, makes every player on the ice better when hes out there...

NIET!!!!!

I dont need to spell out the virtues of Nicky.

He is the BEST defenseman to set blade to ice. He is the Wayne Gretzky of D-men and you have the audacity to wish him away?

I dont even know why I am responding to your post since you are so unbelievably clueless regarding hockey in general.

There are 29 other teams that would pay twice the salry Nick and D get now to have them for one year and we have them.

You sound like the type that has a supermodel girlfriend and complains that she doesnt have perfect hair after rocking your world.

Total Moron and I feel just a bit more dumb replying to you.

Damn me :ranting:

Its really hard to tell around here right now..

Seems like more "fans" dislike the team than stand behind them, I was tricked in the sarcasm only because the norm is to complain about everything that makes the team great.

I shouldve check the post count before commenting but like I said it seems like everyone is ready to jump ship before it sprung a leak.

This is why I always use the /sarcasm tag. Sometimes, people just don't know based on some of the moonbat responses I have read. :)

Got my fingers crossed, that's for sure. He's completely worthless these days. At least before he was a pretty speedy winger. Now he literally brings nothing to the table. He loses puck battles 99% of the time, isn't physical, rarely scores, yet he plays on our 2nd line while Jordan Tootoo is a healthy scratch??? Completely mind blowing logic right there. I pray we move on from him

I just think that Clears is only really effective of the 4th line anymore, and the fact of the matter is it look's like our kids can play...

 

      .....Still I think a title that reads "may be sent packing" is a little classless for what Cleary gave us.

Tatar is better than Cleary.  Should be playing on the Wings right now, but Tatar's 7 points in 7 games in the AHL playoffs isn't good enough to have him run with our makeshift 4th lines.  Guess GR needs him for round 2.



 Umm, article, it's also unlikely Miller and White are re-signed.  It's time to clean house good this time and keep guys like Andersson, Nyquist and Tatar up, along with Lashoff and maybe even Callahan for the 4th line.  No more of these gap contracts when we have the talent we got coming up through the pipes.  And there's no garuntee that Flip's a Wing for opening night next season.  Tuzzi and Sammy are gone after next season.  We have so many talented kids coming up, it would be stupid to re-sign any of the above mentioned guys.  We all know our prospects list, it's time to live by it.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

 I get that but the thought of him sliding into Clearys spot give me confidence in our depth.  Brunner could go back with Z or Tatar with Z...Nevermind haha

No doubt Cleary battled, but he's not good with the puck and he falls down a lot.  It should have been written "Kids may ultimately take Cleary's spot" or "Wings may not be able to retain Cleary this summer" but either way, he among others need to be cut loose.  We don't want to lose Tatar cause we just had to keep Cleary for whatever reason.

 There's no roster limit in the post season.  We should have more Black Aces.  We shouldn't have to rely on Cleary, Sammy and Tuzzi.  We need the young legs that can endure a long playoff run, or we shouldn't be surprised when we don't have a long playoff run.  GR is doing great, but it's all about the ultimate prize.  Our "system" has enough good players to possibly win a Cup, but which one are we trying to win?

You are 100% right. But Babcock cant make Holland look stupid by scratching them. Instead, he benches Bertuzzi and Samuelsson the whole game. Its a joke. We play with an 18 man lineup cuz our GM has a hard on for old washed up has beens.

Why does everyone here forget that WE CAN'T GRAB ANYONE FROM THE GRIFFINS UNTIL THEY ARE OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS. It's that easy. It seriously is. I'm so sick of reading, "well we care about the Calder more!!!" No. We don't. It's simply that we CAN'T do that. It's the same reason why we don't have any Black Aces traveling with us right now.
