I don't mind re-signing Cleary, but NOT for 3 years and NOT for that cap hit.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Update (4:40 p.m. ET): So about that whole report… Just forget it. Pleiness updates his story saying the team isn’t close at all to re-signing the veteran forward but they’re willing to do it if they can shed salary first.

 

Seems Holland's lack of trading away part of his huge stack of forwards is causing problems with getting Cleary resigned. LOL Come on Kenny now you gotta make a trade!!!

At this point re-signing ANY forward is mind blowing logic. Let alone a declining Cleary taking up a roster spot that could be filled by SEVERAL better options...I just hope and pray this signing doesn't get finalized

For all intents and purpose Cleary is back, they will re-sign him when they clear some salary. So the news is 'you will have Cleary, not today, but soon.'

This is a nightmareeee please wake me up please

 

I can't believe what our front office's mind set is "Who and what can we get rid of to get Cleary back!? I don't know but we better do it fast, I've already promised him 2.6 millions ASAP!"

Thank you to the mod that changed the title. Mlive is typically a good source, but it seems that didn't have the details correct here.

This doesn't make sense though...Kenny would just be signing another veteran to join Bert and Sammy in the press box

No, the news is that they'll probably sign him if they're able to clear some salary. What do you think the words "the team isn’t close at all to re-signing the veteran forward" mean?

Well the whole "They want to re-sign him once they clear salary' part that was after the headline threw me. I know, reading a whole article isn't your game.

I like Cleary but it's time to make a change.  This team struggled mightily at times last year and Cleary's play has been declining for 2 years straight now.  He's doesn't have the wheels/endurance to play the type of offense this team wants to play.  I can't count the number of times i saw the Wings break out last year with Cleary not able to join the rush, or how many times Cleary hit the blue line and just dumped in b/c he didn't have the speed to beat defenders or the size/strength to overpower them.  His best play came in front of the net on power plays, but he wasn't great at it (not like Holmstrom) and not worth the contract being mentioned.  Great grit player, great locker room guy, etc but not a $2.5M player in a salary cap era.

Anytime you have a relationship with a long time player like Cleary a handshake and a gentleman's promise usually is good enough to make a player happy for now. Its old school and

sounds like what has occurred in this case with Holland and Co. reaching a deal and once other trades go through it will be finalized. I know I've done it many times with good folks I trust

in business. Like Shaman464 said I think you can count on Cleary being a Wing, its pretty much a done deal. Would imagine the Morrow talk is now over as well.

You mean this? 

 

The Detroit Red Wings would like to have forward Daniel Cleary back, but the only way that will happen is if they can shed some salary.

 

To me, that looks a lot more like "They would life to have him back, but they can't do so unless they can shed some salary." There's also the bit about this possibility being uncertain, and him being free to sign with any team.

The fact that such agreements rarely hold water in the sports world aside, making such an agreement would mean Cleary waiting for something that might not ever happen, and thus possibly missing out on deals he could have gotten from other teams. As such, the probability of this being the case is low.

Cleary has fully tested the market, he knows whats out there.
