I have to wonder, doesn't Holland talk to Babcock and the other members of the team before signing off on s*** like this??? doesn't anyone actually speak up to stop this lunacy??????

Doesn't sound like it is a two-way deal.

Another counterproductive signing by an ineffective and hilariously incompetent GM.

Steve Downie scored 24 points in 62 games last year and got a one-year, $1million deal. Cleary scored 8 points in 52 games and just got a one-year contract worth up to $2.5 million. Let that sink in.

Sadly reports are it was Babcock behind bringing back Cleary last year so I doubt he has much of a problem with this. "Clears" is his boy for life. Look I was a huge Cleary fan too, but after the massive tolls on his body he just isn't what he used to be out there. Even Homer was a better skater at 38/39 than Cleary is now.

Babs probably wanted Cleary. I just don't get it. If you want him around the locker room for leadership give him some bull s*** job. This is exactly why top free agents don't want to play for the wings anymore.

FFS, Chelios still has more game left in him right now.

Would not be surprised if this deal was made because Holland is working on a trade for a dman. Perhaps a roster player may be on the move? Who knows. Either that or he and Andersson will be keeping the pressbox warm for much of the season rather than having a guy like Jurco do it.

 

Jurco would be in the lineup every night.

Loyalty... How bout some loyalty to the fans, hey Ken?


This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

The Red Wings have absolutely no direction under Ken Holland. What's the sell to fans right now? The one thing that would and did add excitement is the youth movement and Ken takes a s*** on that every opportunity he gets. Extending the playoff streak is a joke because clearly the organization isn't trying to win now all that hard either by keeping Kyle Quincey and Dan Cleary around.

Holland is incompetent. The league has passed him by and lapped him at this point.

People at the JLA should wear "If Cleary Plays We Riot" shirts.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

That would mean he brings something to the table. Danny brings what? Not a damn thing.

There should be NO ONE at the JLA in protest of this garbage. At least until they get the hint that Kenny has to leave.

This would be hilarious, if it wasn't so sad. I'd rather have Bertuzzi for that money.
