So Holland will not re-sign Bertuzzi, which is good, but he is considering re-signing Cleary?  Color me confused. 

 

Anyway, this is good news as he had a pretty poor season and is just too injury prone.

Now how are we gonna win shootouts? Hopefully one of the kids, idk maybe Jurco (I know, shot in the dark), could be tried in a SO... Wait, who am I kidding? that won't work.

Good. I'm perfectly fine with letting every free agent walk, with the possible exception of Alfie. Even then, I think the Wings could afford to explore other options.

About time, thanks for the service and best of luck.

 

The only UFA I'd be willing to re-sign is the monster, Alfie should finally sign a deal with the Sens and retire there even if its just a 1 day contract he deserves it.

Although not unexpected, I'm glad to hear its official for both him and Sammy.  Both were injured all the time and when they weren't injured they were barely noticeable.  The league min is overpayment at this point.  Legwand probably won't be back either.  It wouldn't surprise me to see Quincey gone too.

As bad as hes  become, I'd still take him over cleary. 

 

But what do I know, im not Ken Holland

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

So we are going to let Bert go which is fine...but re-sign Cleary?!?!? Am I in bizzaroland or something? Waiting for the announcement that we are signing Q to an extension of 2-3 years.

Honestly, I never had a problem with the guy, but his time has passed.  

 

Hopefully the next Bertuzzi doesn't come with a curse, and can be half as productive as Todd was in his prime.

I agree, let Alfie walk. You could see he slowed down considerably during the second half of the season. I hope Holland has learnt from his mistakes with Cleary, Samuelsson and Bertuzzi...

jup but on a two way contract so basically it's a signing for GR and an injury call up here and there, no problem with that.

LOL, yes I read that, but there is no way Cleary will play in the NHL again. It is only for show, to make good on that promise.

Like to wager on that? I bet he starts the season IN THE TOP SIX.

... It's been a while since he's played in our top 6, aside from maybe a couple games here and there

Very surprising. Holland only goes for washed up veterans, so it's mind boggling why he didn't throw a 3 year offer at him.
