In Topic: Favorite Dan Cleary Moment or Play

He's had some good ones, but I was at the game where he scored on the Penalty Shot against Calgary - so that definitely gets my vote.


In Topic: Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

I got a push notification on my phone from the NHL - "Red Wings re-sign F Daniel" and the rest was cut off. Click on it and found out it was not Alfie. I am disappoint.


In Topic: Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Ok I don't like Quincey either, but for all of you who think he can do no good and is the spawn of satan, here's somes stats.

 

Only RW D-man to play the full 82 games

2nd best takeaway to giveaway ratio among D-men on the team

3rd in hits and blocked shots among RW D-men (even when pro rated)

3rd in SH time on ice per game among our D-men

 

Advanced stats aren't good though if you give those kind of things credit

 

Hate to say it, but these don't make me feel any better about the signing. He stayed healthy, that is a good thing for our team sure. 3rd in SH time on a team where 4 or maybe 5 D-men play on the SH isn't impressive, especially when the Wings were middle of the pack for killing penalties, and Quincey lead the team with 88 penalty minutes. Not to mention his atrocious 0.13 ppg, compared to his 0.40 ppg with COL/LAK.

 

He flat-out doesn't fit in with this club. That's why he hasn't had the production here that he did with other teams. I really do believe he's hurting Smith as a partner too. Watch whenever Smith wants to jump into the play, Quincey will try to do the same and they'll both get caught out of position.


In Topic: New guy, needing help

You weren't on vacation last month in the ABC islands, were you? I chatted with a guy from Scotland who came up to me because of my Datsyuk jersey (in Curacao, more specifically).


In Topic: Jurco Called Up

His goal last night looked pretty good. Aside from the highlight though I haven't been able to watch him (except for 1 GR game this year). How's his defensive game been?
