He'll still be signing Cleary 'when he's 64'.

Where did I say that speculation isn't reaching?

 

Did you not understand the difference between blind speculation and extrapolation from existing facts?

In fact I didn't think anything I said was controversial & was being generous saying it was speculation in the first place.

Still don't understand the difference, do you?

 

Again, I was bending over backwards here. First he used the word speculating so I used the word speculating to answer him (and even explained that it wasn't mindless; that it comes from other known info. But hey, go ahead & just keep ignoring that!). Then he used reaching, so I used reaching to answer him. Simple as that.

People here seem to forget there's a Salary Cap. I think it's obvious Holland is building through the draft, and won't overpay for UFA's. Teams that build through the draft win Championships, teams that sign over priced UFA's don't.

 

Hindsight is always 20/20 vision, after the 2009 playoffs if Holland signed Hossa over Franzen there would have been a riot! Hossa was a letdown in the playoffs, while Franzen had 12 goals, and 13 the year before. I think based on what both players make, and the points they've put up, Franzen vs. Hossa has been a wash.

Maybe he wants to build through the draft like you said, but that obviously isn't happening. If the plan is to build through the draft and not overpriced FA, then maybe he should let the draftees play and not the overpriced FA like Cleary and Quincy.

Now speculating isn't reaching? Gimme a break

I just don't see why you're creating things to get mad at Cleary about.  There's plenty enough to be mad about as a Red Wings fan right now that is factually known. 

I don't know. I guess because these are the things I'm upset about....  

 

I mean if I said he got resigned because he and Ken want to bond over their love of pokemon, then sure you would be right that I was just 'making s*** up' to be pissed about.

 

I really don't think I'm reaching nearly as much as you are suggesting I am. Not even close. In fact I didn't think I was reaching at all on most of those points I made.
