Well the way were going maybe I'll get to see Gordie howe play after all. Give him a three year deal Kenny. I think he can play in the too six as well.


As a matter of fact my grandpa is retired I think he could use 3m for 3 years as well....get it done Kenny.

Well, he didn't pursue Ryan because of his subpar playoffs, so now Holland is pursuing Cleary because of his "remarkable" playoffs.

 

Holland needs to trade himself for Steve Yzerman.  Let's move on already.  


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

 

Can you imagine what his skating will be like in 3 years?   :lol:

Haha. Yes, Steve "Who needs defense or goaltending?" Yzerman, whose team has bombed the past two seasons. He was left a capable team by his predecessor and has failed utterly to maintain it. Instead, he has ignored its needs and stocked it with bad contracts.

 

But hey... greener grass and all that, right?

Too bad the Pens didn't sign him.  

 

It'd be funny if due to massive injuries, he and Crosby ended up on the same line.  It'd be interesting to see what kind of numbers Cleary would have then.

I don't hate the idea of having Cleary back in general, but $2.6 million is just nuts. The guy is getting too old and while he has had his moments, particularly in the playoffs this year, his body will continue to break down and he'll become more and more inconsistent. And let's face it, consistency has never been his strong point, especially in the playoffs even when he was younger.

 

This was his best playoff year since the 08/09 run, and the years between were hardly stellar. Seems to me that we're gambling on what was likely a fluke offseason points streak. Again, that's just not going to get any easier for him to come by the older he gets. Given what we've seen and his age, it's a lot more likely that he'll come up empty in the post-season again than he will come up big like he did this year. And let's be honest, does anyone think the Wings would really be as eager to sign him after his regular season if not for the playoff points? I think we'd want him, but I think we'd laugh hysterically at the idea of paying him what we've been paying him.

 

Again, I don't mind having Cleary around, but at this stage, with the cap, his age, and his inconsistency to consider, if he wants to stay on this team and make a run, he should be taking a team-first contract. We ultimately don't need him, and that really ought to be the bottom line when negotiating with him.

Yep, Stevie is still early in his development as a GM.  Not ready for prime time yet.  I believe he will get there but not for years.

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

With all the office up and leaving for dallas maybe he is just fixing in his next recruits:)

I just don't get it. There is no way cleary has the leverage to demand such a contract. This is just another example of Kenny's extreme loyalty.

We don't need another voth player.  Plus Ling Enizgh is on LITR and can't be traded.

If I could guess I believe it has more to do with Babs wanting Cleary back rather then Holland does. If this is the case though Kenny must have 1 or 2 trades lined up. Give Raymond the same salary I bet he takes it

But... I thought Ling Enizgh was the JUCK F***ING POTT?
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Common misconception, but that was a different voth playerin.

Edit: in fact I think it was actually Danny Cleary, not to be confused with Dan Cleary. Neither of whom should be confused with Daniel Cleary.

If there are ever "massive injuries" on the Penguins Cindy usually is included in that list, so doubtful it would happen.
