Franzen is in for it now. There won't be a second whipping boy to share the load with.

 

You're forgetting Quincey.

I'm hearing conflicting things. Is Cleary officially (becoming) a Flyer or is this a PTO dealy?

 

Holmgren: Cleary has 'no promises' for contract [PHT]

 

I haven't been following this all that closely, so maybe I just missed something...?


Don't Toews me, bro!

When so many players simply do not think or care about loyalty and only chase the money, Cleary was loyal to the Red Wings to the bitter end. Hope you have a major bounce back season with Philadelphia, Clearly.


He turned down an offer from the Wings to take a higher offer from a non playoff team, how is this showing loyalty and not chasing the money? He showed no loyalty whatsoever and went to the highest bidder.

Flyers just like the Wings are on the second tier so I would not write them off just yet. Although their goaltending will be key once again.

Congrats to Cleary for winning the lottery, couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!  By the reaction from all the teammates, he was obviously a class act in the locker room.  

 

BUT I can't deny that I'm thrilled that we don't have to worry about signing him.

He no longer seems to be a useful player, glad he's going elsewhere.

They don't have good defense or goaltending, and their offense is not always good. They are a team known for over paying for decent players and blaming all their woes on their goalie

so he went for an extra 1.65 mil over 3 years

 

shows how much he wanted to be here. or maybe he knew he was getting push to the bottom

 

he always was a good playoff guy. but 3 years is too long and 2.75 is too much. i rather have alfie

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Not sure it has as much to do with Cleary's desire to stay with the Red Wings, as it does the Wings have no space to make the move. I think if both sides had their way, Cleary would still be in Detroit. Not that I'm disappointed in Cleary moving on to the Flyers, but in reality Holland's awful contract to Samuelsson probably prevented Cleary from staying. So for once, I'm thankful to have that horrible deal. 

 

As you stated, I completely agree that three years is far too long for a player breaking down physically. Cleary is one of my favorites, but I am relieved that the Red Wings don't have another roster spot potentially being taken away from Nyquist/Tatar. 

 

Regardless, I am grateful for Cleary's dedication and service to the organization. Remarkable story from training camp invite to a major contributor on a championship team and one that came within a game of another. I personally became a huge Cleary fan because of his work-ethic and heart. He fell down a ton at the end, but he was always out there competing hard every shift.

 

Anticipating Cleary outworking Franzen for a loose puck or two on October 12th.  :bye1:

Nothing against Cleary I wish him well but it was time to move on. The Detroit Red Wings need to get younger and also meaner. So good luck in Philly you are going to need it Cleary.

Reports are that the Wings offered Cleary contracts twice. He turned them both down. Cleary left for the money. Good for Ken Holland for using common sense.

Leino's numbers were inflated. Briere and Hartnell did all the work for him. Now he's in Buffalo without any guys like that, and he's terrible just like was with the Wings.

Because Nyquist is meaner than Cleary.

So I was just playing NHL 14 and I decided I should play my first game against Buffalo just like this year's schedule.  I won the game.  The weird part, 2 goals including the GWG...by Daniel Cleary.

I will miss him very much.  He worked his ass off, and like someone else said here, he gave his body to the Red Wings.  I hope he proves a lot of you to be arrogant, fickle fans.   


"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

What an unbelievably bad contract for a guy who, while great in the past, seems to be declining pretty rapidly.  That term is brutal. 


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."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
