This doesn't belong here and wasn't going to start a thread but I got the new 2014 Red Wings calendar and they have Sammuelson and Cleary in it--PUKE!!!  How about DeKeyser or Andersson or even Kindl????  They were around I'm sure when they were discussing the calendar and had pictures of those guys too. 

 

Anyway, just had to rant!

And you're wrong, because by all indications Ilitch rarely meddled in affairs of management.


So then, what's to explain not even bothering to tell Eaves that he had been waived? Oops, Holland forgot?

Cleary is on the team because Babcock lobbied hard for him to be there. I agree that it should have been Cleary on the waiver wire.

 

That said, it's almost certain that Cleary will be a regular scratch unless he begins playing better. Babcock likely wanted him back because of his performance in the playoffs, but he has been useless so far in this season. Worse than useless, in fact, because he's using up a roster spot that would be far better suited to other players. I watched a video of the 2009 playoffs recently; he was very fleet of foot back then. Now he's horribly slow. Sad.

 

That said, he's absolutely not going to be re-signed if he continues playing as he has been.


 

And you're wrong, because by all indications Ilitch rarely meddled in affairs of management.

 

 

 

I see three significant problems with your post, all of them clearly the result of you not checking your facts:

 

1) Samuelsson was signed for two years, not three.

2) The team didn't have too many forwards at the time.

3) You spelled Quincey's name wrong. If you're going to criticize the guy, at least know his name first.

 

And so on.

Yeah, they did.   Signing Cleary put them 3 players over the roster limit and 2.4 million over the salary cap.  Did we have too many defenseman?  Goalies?  I don't think so.  Speaking of checking facts...

I believe he was talking about the Sammy signing.

He may have been, but the original post he quoted they were obviously referring to Cleary being signed when there were already too many forwards (quoted again below).

 

 

 Sam reason he signed a useless 35 yr old Samuelsson 3 yrs @3M and no knees Cleary for 1.75 M when we already had too many forwards.

Quincy and Miller are the ones that should go, that clears 5.35M and they have -10 and -9 respectively.

Samuelsson was signed in 2012.

 

You were saying?

Honestly I was a bit surprised.  Eaves doesn't cost much and is a decent player.  I thought someone might have grabbed him.

 

I guess it shows how fans tend to overvalue players on their team, especially ones they like.


 

Samuelsson was signed in 2012.

 

You were saying?

He is very obviously referring to Cleary, as was the original post you quoted.

 

So knock it off with the trolling.

Not too too surprised. I still think there are a handful of bottom-dwellers that would like a guy like Eaves. But I also feel like those teams don't want to blow their highly seeded position in the waiver queue on a guy like Eaves in case someone better comes along.

I was hoping that Eaves would have got taken. Starting to show how little some of our players are worth in this salary rollback market we are in. Ken Holland will have to do a much better job when passing out contracts to bottom 6 players that can easily be replaced for nothing. ei Cleary

A new strategy, screw the prospects in GR. Load up with some many low end forwards that we have to send them to GR thus, not allowing even more prospects to play.

If a player gets waived and more than one team makes a claim, the team with the lowest percentage of possible points at the time the claim is made gets the player.

Exactly. And once that team claims a player off of waivers, they move to the back of the line. Correct?

Might be crowding GR a bit. I don't get what the problem is waiving players we know aren't going to be picked up. We she'd salary and we can still bring these guys up if need be
