I've thought about this now for a few days and I still think this was a remarkably dumb move.

I didn't exactly want him back but I think the worst part of the Cleary signing will be listening to everyone here complain about him all year, regardless of how he actually plays. 

 

I'm guessing the biggest role Cleary fills in the coming season is scapegoat.

He's getting paid a 3rd line salary and IMO he's a below average 2nd liner, so I can't complain about that. If we didn't have roster issues this would be a great signing.

So now it looks like Cleary will be sticking with #71. I give it two days.


"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

What actual role do you feel he fills?

This is pretty much how I feel minus the great part.  It would be a non-issue for me at that price if we didn't have a roster limit issue.  Gus doesn't deserve to be in GR.

With eaves on ltir (possibly) and helm, we could just send Sammy to the $1 hotdog stand...
Wait, could we suspend Sammy and ship him to nyi? :)
