The Red Wings once acquired Ulf Samuelsson, but some people would seriously not watch games because they signed Cleary? 


Yes. Ulf was a true villain. Good analogy.

Tanking Red Wings games due to the Cleary signing is such a bad idea that we should all just do it.

Dan Cleary hates your freedom.

If you tank games, Dan Cleary wins.

Why..?

 

This thread really doesn't make much sense at all. Boycott games post-lockout, sure. Boycott games because of a minor depth signing is just plain dumb. 

 

I could see if we had like DiPietro for that horrible contract, and then suddenly resigning him again after it expired and he had spent 99% of it injured, but Cleary? 

 

lots of fans aren't happy with management decisions.. plus we don't want to pay money that will go to dan cleary's salary. i think it makes sense

I could care less... I guess maybe cause I'm a true fan I'll go watch the games regardless of what moves management makes...

Ya I agree. I disagree with a lot of the moves because I'm a fan. I want my team to win. But win or lose I'll always be watching/attending games when I can.

Please do not put words in my mouth. I don't care enough to boycott them. Obviously I would love to see the caliber team we had in 97, 98, 2002, or 2008. We don't have that though, does that mean I'm gonna jump off the bandwagon? No, I'm obviously still going to follow them and go to games regardless of who they sign. I'm not a Chicago fan.

20,066 other people gladly will, so it's probably a futile effort. If the Red Wings management consistently made poor decisions, then I maybe understand fans' backlash. However, boycotting over Dan Cleary seems a little overdone.

i saw this thread on HFboards a few days ago. someone asked if any wings fan would give up on buying tickets to the games due to the cleary signing, and some posters said they'd downright not watch games on television anymore. 
 
i'm just curious, will anyone here tank the games this year? i personally will watch the games but probably won't attend one.



I'm about ready to tank LGW for threads like this.

Hell no I won't boycott Wings games and I have enough Cleary hatred to give some to each member on LGW.  I may even try to go to a game or 2 in Detroit this year, seeing as right before Christmas I'll be living a couple hours or so away!  Feel free to PM me areas of Detroit to stay away from.  I don't want to end up on the wrong side of 8 mile yo!

I think tank was actually a good signing. He's got all the intangibles and comes with a reasonable cap hit.

I don't understand why he has to hit the cap at all, I mean the cap didn't mean to spill the milk...

 

also I would love to see what MAXIME Ouellet can bring to the wings this year...

 

http://www.nhl.com/i...id=nhl:topheads

 

 

Defense prospects Maxime Ouellet and Ryan Sproul are probably not NHL ready, but they have gotten ice time in the preseason and will likely be first in line for a call-up.

 

 

 

Also if you click maxime's name it  gives you a link to his nhl profile, talk about over-ripening, time to see what the 32 year old goalie defenseman can do!!!
