To be fair to Babcock and Holland, Cleary was---while still mediocre---vastly better last season than he is now. He underwent a tremendous decline over the summer. While he should not have been brought back at all, I don't think anyone could have anticipated his presently disastrous state of physical condition.

 

C'mon now, I think we ALL predicted that.


I wish one of the guys in the press conference would ask why the single worst forward on the team, one of such limited offensive ability that even the coach---his self-professed biggest fan---does not give him any power play time, is playing with Pavel Datsyuk.

 

Probably scared to lose their credentials.  If someone gets me creds, I'll ask it.  I'll even wear a Babcock wig while doing so.

Unfortunately babs and co. said for saturdays game theyll roll the same lines from last game...which to everyones absolute dismay means hammer hands, cement skates, useless f*** Dan Cleary will destroy the top line yet again. Ohboy!


Lol....hammer hands

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

Just for the sake of trying something new, let's all keep a few of these threads on topic and not about Cleary.

 

Thanks.

While I understand, I think Cleary is topic-centric to everything Wings related this season.  e.g. This thread wouldn't exist without Cleary being on the team.

You're obviously not alone in thinking Cleary is topic-centric to everything this season, but he actually isn't. 

 

Cleary's role in the lineup could certainly be relevant to Nyquist under some circumstances and worth discussion, but when it veers off into the endless complaining that litters every thread here, it is no longer germane to the topic and will be deleted.

Nyquist > Tatar (at this point in their respective careers)

 

I do think Tats should get a look in the top six, though. And I've gotta think it's gonna happen soon enough, unless we start rolling along, which I'd be fine with.

What I'd really like to see - as an "experiment," if you like - is Z and D each sort of mentoring one of Gus/Tats, taking them under their wings, molding them into potential future Euro Twins. If that makes any sense.

I think it has to deal with Tatars defensive game. Nyquist is well rounded and has played in tight situations in the league already. Babcock is more familiar with him and has more trust in him than Tatar. Tatar is great and he's proven to score goals when given the chance but his defensive play would get eaten alive against top skilled players he would be against in the top 6.

Some of my faith in Babs/Holland is starting to be restored. Seems they may actually be watching the same team we are.
