I think everyone got caught up last season with the youth and expect these young guys to be amazing right off the bat. They'll come and go throughout this season and will be inserted at the right times. Nyquist and Andersson will be on the opening day roster. me thinks. The moment they start to suck, everyone will turn on them. It's how our fan-base works. Cleary is a great player for this team. He does a lot for what we pay him (which isn't an enormous amount) and much more. He puts his heart and soul on that ice each and every night, and those players are hard to come by. It's not like he's 37 years old, he's 34. I think his offensive numbers will jump up this season too with the guys we signed (considering the past 6 years have been meh). If things start to decline as he gets older, hopefully Holland does the right thing then.

That's the problem with some of the posters on this forum, they don't understand discussion. Even if things are long ranged, it's a nice thought to talk about. Discussion is better than nothing.
Hedberg would be a nice thought, but Jonas Gustavsson I think I'd enjoy more. He's lost all his confidence while playing with the Leafs (in my opinion), and before he lost that, he was doing good. So why not boost your confidence while playing with the best Hockey team in the NHL? :-P
