I like the "thinking outside the box and shaking up your team" kind of a trade. I vaguely remember things like that happening here. Maybe not a 7 player deal, but the Primeau and Coffey for Shanahan kind of deal. Ahh...good times.
I'd much rather watch Cleary earn his money from afar where I can see him on NHL Tonight every once in a while having a puck glance off him and he gets credit for it or the other team scores off one of his turnovers. Enough. There are tons of young players who could do more with his ice time.
I don't want him on this team anymore. Not a condition of term, or how much per year, I just don't. I want this team to get tougher and hungrier, and Flip's style of play, to me, does not equate to these things. Go do that thing you do somewhere else.
