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

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?

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.

Well, he does provide a comic element.

 

This team lacks offensive talent and has no toughness.  Hard to find anything else to be positive about besides the village idiot.

Best part of that is he doesnt seem to have been pushed and the puck is on the other side of the ice lol

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.

Agreed. It's up there with the St. Louis Blue d-man who faceplants into the glass gif for comedy (I think it was Colaiacovo, so there's the Wings connection.)
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Was definately coliacavo. That gif was also way funnier based on his freakish ability of getting injured

Never trust a gif.
 
He was crosschecked in the back prior to running into the crossbar.  Part of the reason he reacts the way he does is it looks like he hits his face on the crossbar.
 
And he was going hard to the net to get open for a pass or rebound.   It probably looks unfamiliar because he's one of the few Wings players who does it.

Great job with the context. I'd forgotten about that. The gif is funny but not the whole story. Danny gets a pass from me on it, but I can't help chuckling at the gig when I see it.
