Per Mlive, the Wings have re-signed Cleary, 3 years with an average value of 2.6 per year.

 

http://www.mlive.com...iel_cleary.html

 

EDIT: The story has changed to reflect that Cleary is not signed and may not be signed. The original story was that a deal was done and the Wings would have to clear a contract to finalize the deal.

 

MOD: Please edit the title to reflect the new, correct information.

States they are going to re-sign him, but haven't yet as they have to clear roster space. So this is pending.

Anyways, looks like Brunner is donzo

This is the sound of Holland s***ting the bed. 16 forwards (including Andersson and Nyquist) and he signs #17. Say good bye to any chances of there being any youth on the team.

Only possible explanation is that Sammy and Bert are confirmed to be on LTIR for the entire season. I think it's clear that Emmerton is gone, but I'm also not sure how this will work with the Miller signing unless Eaves and/or Tootoo are going to be off the roster as well.

I don't believe they can Pronger Sammy and Bert anymore, at least not without them actually being hurt. They have 5 forwards over the 12 that can play any given night.

Nice, I like him. I better stay away from this thread from now on though.

Thank God, for a second I almost thought we'd have a young, high energy team.  I.  Don't.  Understand. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I don't think it's terrible, but it's a head scratcher.

I believe Les Claypool is currently working on a tribute song for the Wings called "Too Many Forwards"

 

 

Any chance another team could come in & steal Cleary away if the Wings don't get below the 50 man roster limit soon?  Please?

Not a bad cap hit, not a bad player. Don't think the kids are at risk for this signing, think Eaves, Tootoo and Sammy will be at risk.

Dumb dumb dumb signing. We have NO use for him. Anything he can do, the kids at intermission can do.

What can the Wings do with Sammy, other than a regular buy out when he is healthy?

 

I think there has to be a trade on the horizon. However, I am surprised the Wings would make this move before the trade occurring. The Wings also have to worry about the RFA signings when it comes to the cap and roster room.

He's a warrior. Teams wanted him for a reason. He brings alot to the table.
He gets under the opposing team's skin.
He will protect his teammates
He sacrifices his body for the team
Great leader
Heart of a champion.

All attributes that most superstars lack.
