Why would you hope he has a terrible season? Don't you think it would be better if he had a legit bounce back year and made the team better?


He didn't have a bad season. He's like 3 straight and cleary is not getting any healthier. The only way he makes the team better is by not making the team at all

How about this play. Visiting a children's hospital that included my niece being treated for cancer. Yea, too many big talking men with mighty keyboards and made up names can go on and on and pass their judgement on a guy for getting a job, but what the f*** have any of you loud mouth critics done for a sick kid that isn't even related to you? Oh wait, I think I know the answer to that one. Nothing!

 

How about logging off and doing something useful with your life. Sounds like work, so I'm guessing many will pass.

Oh cool, let's turn the thread into a guilt trip on all of us cause we don't like the Cleary signing.  It's cool that he did something nice for a sick kid, but so do tons of other athletes, doesn't mean we have to like them too.  It's a discussion forum....if we all log off you may as well shut the site down.  As you very well know, life isn't all sunshine and rainbows, it's quite opposite often.  And get off your high horse with that "what have you done for sick kids" stuff.  Athletes make millions and give a small amount to charity or just show up.  Some of us make pennies compared to those guys and also show up and for charity events and give money when we can.  You just don't hear about it cause we're not famous.  Ridiculous...

There's a lot of assumptions being thrown around in this comment. Many of us have volunteered at hospitals and soup kitchens, and have worked with the sick and homeless, myself included.
As for Cleary, it's awesome that he does this sort of extracurricular work, and I'm glad that the Red Wings take community involvement, charities, etc so seriously. There are so many organizations that literally cannot function without the aid of volunteers and/or donations. The Wings' organization does their fair share in this regard, and also provides a good role model for others in the community to do the same. Good on Cleary to keep that spirit alive. At the very least, I hope you've followed in Cleary's footsteps and are regularly donating your time and money to those less fortunate than you.

Cleary bringing the worst out of some people, isn't he?

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.

That will probably win, but I like to forget anything that happened in those playoffs.  

 

Cleary was awful in the 2008 playoffs, but the Wings won the Cup.  In 2009, he was brilliant and scored a lot, but the Wings lost and he missed that crucial breakaway at the end of game 6 against the Pens.  

 

2007 is a better memory, because the team vindicated itself after choking in the playoffs in 2003, 2004 and 2006.  Losing to Anaheim on a deflection sucked, and I still feel we'd have won the Cup if not for that play, but overall, that playoff feels better.  Also likely because we won the Cup the following year.  2009 still stings because the Wings haven't won anything since then.

 

What about the Lilja OT giveaway to Selanne?

You really think we would have won that game in OT?   :no2:

 

We couldn't beat Anaheim in OT to save our lives during those playoff series in 2003, 2007 and 2009.  Especially against Giguere.  It was our destiny to lose.    


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