Quote me a post where someone said he was awesome.
Clearly had a good game tonight and the majority of his chances were not only because of Dats. And like it or not he gets more time than Tatar because he can play on the PP and the PK. Like I said before, he's a utility player.
Cleary's been having a rough season but people underestimate the difference between the responsibilities of 10 minutes a night and those of 17+.
Like I said before, he's not been great so far this season, but the bashing here is absurd.
Here are a few. They don't saw he is "awesome", but it's clearly that they think he is worth keeping around and is a good player.
Nope. Band will put him with z and Brunner now and he will lead the team in mins. He is to the wings that Inge was to the tigers. And fans are acting the same way.
Love seeing my boy Cleary prove all you haters wrong.
Cleary gets a tipped garbage goal on a PP and suddenly he's awesome? NOT! Tatar looks like a 2nd liner, Cleary doesn't. Tatar scored and played well even strength all night. Cleary had a better than usual game but he gets the majority of his chances because of Dats. Hell even Franzen can stand in front of the net.
When I saw Cleary got credit for the goal, my first thought was "yah! This will increase his trade value".
