Cleary is batman. We all hate him - he is old and can't do s*** anymore thanks to his body taking a grind - but he still suits up and takes the beating nonetheless.

Craig Adams signing in Pittsburgh means they're probably out of the Cleary "sweepstakes" now:


With Adams signed, it's now very unlikely that the Pens will sign Dan Cleary. They did speak earlier today.

Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

Please try and remember that the Wings are now offering the money Brunner turned down to Cleary, they are not waiting on Cleary to make a decision on Brunner.


That way your life may have a little less stress in it.



Brunner turned the Wings' offer down to test the market, the Wings made at least one offer of 3 years to Brunner.


This is not new news either, he turned them down before noon!

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

I don't think anyone REALLY wants him - he is a backup plan for most probably.

Cleary is a great grinder. But on the Wings he was a top 6 guy and it didn't work until playoffs. Even then he rarely made things happen, he just happened to be there at the right times.

I'd take him back, but short term and bottom 6.

We may be stuck with Sammu, but after the move he pulled I doubt Babcock ever plays him. Enjoy the press box all season like White, Sammy.

I don't know exactly how I feel about this. But, reading everyone's reaction is and will continue to be entertaining.
