Why be tasteless?
Dan Cleary is the only completely blameless person in this pathetic display.
I do not disagree, but every point Cleary is able to scrap together is justification for his resigning. I fully realize thinking like this is simply spiteful, but his ass clogging the roster is inexcusable with how many talented, young guys are trapped in Grand Rapids.
It is one thing to protect veterans like Chelios and Lidstrom, who work day in and day out, giving 100%, and making smart plays. It is a totally different situation with an average player who continued to show declining skill, careless play, and lazy skating.
That's why you blame Cleary. It spiteful and disgusting, but he is the face of a broader management problem which does not recognize the "old" and "veteran" are completely different things.
