From Pierre LeBrun...
Bottom line here with Dan Cleary is that he had second thoughts after agreeing to PTO with Flyers. Met with Holland/Babcock yesterday...
He wanted to see one last time if Wings could do anything. As @aaronward_nhl reported, Wings able to come up with 1 yr/$1.75 M
Cleary thanked Flyers for PTO but said he had change of heart, wants to stay in Detroit. Taking less than market value for sure.
And perhaps the most concerning tweet of all...
A good season by Cleary and he'll be able to get a better deal next summer with salary cap going up
"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,
is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.
And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!
When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.
And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!
And they call him Sandy Claws!
