I can understand Holland wanting to be loyal and all, but shouldn't Cleary have some accountability also?
Shouldn't he be able to, you know, still play hockey? And be able to repay the loyalty with results on the ice?
I sure hope he can prove us all wrong, but it seems doubtful, as others have pointed out, that his body will be able to hold up for very long
And also, in the backs of all our minds we can see Cleary making the opening night roster, perhaps even in the top 6, regardless of how he performs, over Jurco since he can still be sent down w/o having to clear waivers
Someone should tell Holland that just b/c a player can be sent down, it doesn't mean they should be, esp. in favor of Dano
