I think it would lighten the mood in the locker room if they had a team/teammates that they could be proud of and have confidence in.

I don't understand telling Alfie (who was actually pretty good last year, and actually has great leadership) he has to wait and see if he's healthy enough to play, but Cleary, who can barely stand up (and even if he could is totally useless anyway) gets a pass.

from what i've read it was alfie that said he wanted to wait to see how his back feels before deciding if he wants to play

This is clearly ridiculous, but I don't know if Holland's quote has been metioned...this at least takes some of the sting off:

"He's worked hard in the gym, done things to get himself back," general manager Ken Holland said. "We're hoping Dan Cleary can bounce back. He'll be good insurance. He'll have to beat people out to be in the lineup."

Regardless, this is easily the worst off-season in the Wings have had in recent memory.

I'm gonna riot and I will not spend a dime on attending games if Cleary makes the team over Jurco in September. If people don't think Holland is out of touch by this point, I have nothing left to offer. Just look at the track record since 2009.

Tootoo, Samuelson, Quincey, Cleary. And even letting Emmerton and probably Almquist go to the KHL

You people are all way too serous about this. Take a step back from your keyboard and breath.

The positive of this is it a 1 year deal we have a ton of cap space and looks like no way of using it.

People said it being only a one year deal was a positive last year as well. It turned out to be a poor deal even at one year just like this one is likely to be.

I can understand Holland wanting to be loyal and all, but shouldn't Cleary have some accountability also?

Shouldn't he be able to, you know, still play hockey? And be able to repay the loyalty with results on the ice?

I sure hope he can prove us all wrong, but it seems doubtful, as others have pointed out, that his body will be able to hold up for very long

And also, in the backs of all our minds we can see Cleary making the opening night roster, perhaps even in the top 6, regardless of how he performs, over Jurco since he can still be sent down w/o having to clear waivers

Someone should tell Holland that just b/c a player can be sent down, it doesn't mean they should be, esp. in favor of Dano

It looks like by resigning DD and Tatar we will be done. There is our 23 men roster. I just hope Cleary motivates Weiss to work hard at the gym with him.

From what I've heard Weiss has been doing the Gary Roberts thing. I may have dreamed that though

I told you guys months ago this would happen and most didn't think it wold happen

ken holland is wayyyyyy too f***en loyal man

What a joke, it's not even a 2 way contract right guys ? Now Alfie will probably sign and jurco will start in the minors .... Another wasted season , only hope is these guys everyone know shouldn't be on the team keep getting hurt and the kids play and perform

So sad

do you honestly believe that?

only reason babcock benched him last year is because he was injured. If he isn't injured, he is going to be playing, no matter how much he sucks

Huh... Could have sworn that today was July 10th not April Fools...

He could still end up in GA, even on a one way contract. It just means he gets paid the full contract amount while playing there. So it would be a waste of cap space, but not a waste of a roster spot.

Iam sure many of us hope that Weiss will be back healthy and provide what was expected of him. If that happens I will close my eyes on Cleary. Let him be. Do whatever he does. I don't mind if he does not play more than 5 games. Let him at least sign autographs for the kids.

as long as babcock is coach of the red wings, he isn't going to grand rapids

I literally spent the last two days arguing with guys who think we should trade Tatar and that "Holland's done everything he can" to make this team better but "you can't make people sign here".

On the one hand I'm bummed that our already bad team didn't get any better. On the other hand I'm delighted to have some evidence to point at the next time I say KH is ******* up.
