This team needs to get rid of Cleary, Quincey, Sammy, and Miller.
This team need's most to get a top 4 d-men that is capable of contributing offensively while playing good defense and move the puck, a physical top 6 winger that drives the net, and most importantly a new GM that make changes we need instead of what he thinks is best for the vets.
So basically we will anchor and totally make Datsyuk ineffective because they want to get Cleary going ? There is something seriously wrong with what Babcock is saying. Sorry, but the best players deserve to play top 6 minutes, and Cleary doesn't even deserve a spot on this roster, let alone time with one of the best players in the league.
When Babcock comes back to reality he will then see that Cleary is absolutely useless and not even Gretzky could make him good.
If we can get him signed to a short deal under 2M per year it's a great deal. He can play 20+ minutes and is big and young. He makes dumb plays here and there but he's not as bad as people make him out to be.
Yea a guy that is responsible for losing us 3 games single-handily, sports a -15, turns over the puck everywhere under pressure and doesn't contribute anything offensively is not as bad as people make him out to be.
Why the f*** is Cleary on the top line ? We don't need anyone to be the net presence because Bertuzzi is there already. Cleary has shown no reason as to why he should be on the top line over anyone on the entire team. Tatar has done a better job in less games, more productive, turns bad situations into good, makes great passes to the D (which Quincey, Kindl, Smith) cannot finish.
What has Cleary done besides get 3 lucky secondary assists and fall over and turnover the puck 22 times a game. Babcock isf****** retarded, thank god he isn't picking Team Canada roster...
