Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Rate this topic

222 posts in this topic

The Wings will not use their other compliance buyout, meaning that forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Todd Bertuzzi are safe.

Sammy will be a wing next season, I guess when he is finally healthy around the trade deadline he will be their deadline pickup.

Well were not getting anyone now.

Well if they resign Cleary you can probably say goodbye to Tatar too.

Waivers?? Jk..... Actually wouldn't surprise me

He's stated he won't play another season in the AHL. Of course, now I can't find the quote. But he feels he's earned his spot with the parent club (which he has) and doesn't want to spend another season in Grand Rapids.

If cleary is signed I don't know how anyone can defend Holland anymore. We are going to get crushed by many teams in the Eastern Conference.

I'm almost 100 percent sure that he's outta options anyways meaning he isn't waiver exempt

1. Find some way to get rid of Samuelsson

2. Let Valerie walk.

3. Let Cleary walk, or sign him to a short, cheaper contract, and reduce his role to that of a bottom 6er.

4. Trade Emmerton for a pack of hockey cards.

5. Let White walk (pretty much a given at this point).

6. Sign Eric Nystrom.

7. Sign Ryane Clowe.

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Franzen

Tatar-Nyquist-Clowe

Abdelkader-Helm-Brunner

Andersson-Nystrom-Tootoo

Betuzzi/Eaves

Can't we just put Sammy on LTIR? How can we still keep Tatar Sauce (I know, bad nickname right???)

We let Filp walk, then try to trade Emmerton for a cardboard cutout of Parise. But seriously, the only way I see Tatar making this roster is if Helm doesn't return.

Tatar is safe. When asked about which of the young guys will be permanent Red Wings next season Holland said, "Tatar, Nyquist, Andersson, Dekeyser, and Lashoff." It was on that hour special Q&A hosted by Mickey Redmond a few days back.

Hell Sammy deserves to be on LTIR. He sure as hell has been injured for a long term.

So let White walk despite just losing another d man, and sign two forwards? Not a good idea really

White has been off of the team for months. It's almost a 100% he's gone.

If Cleary gets 3 mill I think I will officially rage. The guy should be in the 1.5-2mill TOPS. Any more than that and Kenny is throwing money down the toilet. Although I must re-state we should NOT be re-signing him to ANY contract

Acording to Capgeek, Cleary made $3M last year. You want him to take a 50% pay cut. Did you watch the playoffs this year? He was really good.

Rage away

Statistically he was, however he wasn't that good. It does help when you get to play with D and Z when you really shouldn't be. Brunner played third line minutes and still managed to have the same amount of points. We would have probably done better if Brunner played on the 2nd line but our 3rd line would have sucked because Cleary was on it instead and he would not have had 10 points.

Flawed logic. You gotta give credit to Cleary where it is due. Franzen and Filppula both spent significant time playing with Z and Pavel during the playoffs and neither of them did anything offensively.

Yea regardless of how good Cleary was I'm one playoff run he does not help this team moving forward and is just extra cap on the team inhibiting us signing a young forward or bringing someone up. We need to get younger not get older.

I agree to an extent. The price and term for me is the biggest factor regarding Cleary. I think he's valuable enough to the team to bring back, provided he plays in a lesser role. However, that requires Holland making moves in free agency to shore up the top-six and that doesn't appear very likely right now. The Red Wings are getting younger regardless, though it's asking a lot to throw Nyquist and Tatar in major roles right away expecting production. Despite Cleary's flaws physically, he's still reliable on the ice against the opposition's skilled forwards. The Wings' third line was largely successful in the playoffs because they were matched up against other third liners. I'm all for the youth as well, but you gotta be careful about putting them in positions to succeed.

Shes not a journalist, but she is a pretty good parrot. She doesn't have a critical thinking bone in her body and will just say what she is told by Holland and Co.

Cleary has been big for the Wings but he also has been out right terrible. At this point in his career i don't think he can be considered a top six guy anymore. Kenny needs to sign him to a 4.5 over 2 years deal. Im sorry but all he has is a ton of heart and as much as this team needs that it just isn't worth anymore money.
