Once again, I am NOT defending this signing. I dislike it as much as anybody. But it happened. I'm not going to lose my mind over it because it isn't going to make it go away. All there is left to hope for is that he gets very well acquainted with the pressbox. 

 

Well, that's wonderful for you.

 

I agree, that generally there's a time and a place for such restraint and perspective.

 

And then there's the day that Ken Holland signed Dan Cleary again.

 

If ever there was a day to blow off some steam, it's today...

There are 29 other beds out there if people don't like it  :ninja:

 

For the record, I'm just making light out of an unfortunate situation, so please don't take everything I say so seriously.

Then why did he end up a healthy scratch last season?

 

Because he wasn't really healthy.

 

Not trying to give you a hard time. Just saying. The whole thing smells. I think it's safe to say we're past "Well, Dan will have to prove he's unequivocally better than any and every other option," if we were ever there in the first place.


Don't Toews me, bro!

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

Are you flipping kidding me?????  I didn't realize Holland was so delusional and it just gets worse.  Let's just throw $1.4 million away because we have money.

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.

 

If he performs like he has prior to the last couple of years you will all be in love with this move come season end.

 

He is a veteran player who can be trusted by the coach and knows the system, you are all very well aware of how fragile this team is so veteran leadership and depth at this price is a no brainer even if he does not play a game.

 

As for the GM I would like to see how some of the posters on this site would be able to pull off the NHL 2014 trades that some of you so desperately want. I can't imagine that it's that easy or you'd be a GM in this league by now.

 

Life long wings fan here who is a realistic person.

 

Chill out relax and enjoy the show!!!!

No one wants to hear it Kenny.

I don't like the signing, but for the sake of the team, I hope Cleary proves us all wrong.

Hey since Kenny is in the spirit of throwing large sums of money away, maybe I can get him to pay off my student loans for me. After this I'm convinced Kenny is locked in the basement of JLA and Matt Millen is running the team. Thank god the Packers are awesome otherwise this would be a looooong winter for me!

The only way this changes is if Ilitch starts losing money then maybe he'll think about firing Holland. The upper management is a clique and won't do what needs to be done. They've all gone senile or maybe mass hysteria.

Sign Samuelsson and Totoo again and I can officially just come back next season to see if Holland is gone.

Must be nice to have such a great team that you can waste a roster spot and a million and a half bucks on a TRAFFIC CONE.

That is just plain insulting...

 

...Traffic cones serve a useful purpose.
