Read that earlier too zombo. Great read, but I figured it would fall on deaf ears around here...

If we got Buff then we'd have the stuff.

If our Henrik  were a netminder - he'd never wear a goalie mask since his Viking-Warrior like beard would be more than adequate.


I see a Mcgrattan like Zetterberg thread popping up in our future.

Again with you saying this on these forums.
 
The only King Henrik around here is Henrik Zetterberg.


At least he has a cup

My sister passed away about 3 weeks ago from cancer.

 

A couple of seasons ago she had a chance to go to a Wings game.

 

My dad had been in contact with the Wings people and they were trying to work out who she might want to meet if she got the chance. It was up to me to ask her who she wanted to meet. Of course, we were trying to surprise her so I didn't want to just come out and say "Hey you're probably going to get to meet one of the players, who do you want to meet?"

 

So i would ask, "Hey Care, if you got to meet anybody on the wings who would you want to meet?"

 

"DAN CLEARY!" she'd exclaim.

 

So a couple of days later I would ask again. "DAN CLEARY!!" was the answer I got again.

 

She knew they were going to be going to the game when she went down to Ann Arbor, so I tried again, "No..Seriously....If you really got to meet one of the current Wings players when you go to the game, who would it be?"  I could not have given her a bigger hint without flat out just telling her!

 

"DAN CLEARY!"

 

So she and my dad and uncle went to the game and had a good time. Then the game was over. As they are trying to 'leave' the building, my uncle is leading the way with directions on where to go with my dad and sister following him. She still has no idea.

 

They end up in an area where she figures they aren't supposed to be. "Are we allowed down this way?"

 

Finally they end up standing against a wall with a bunch of other people with a Wings/arena employee telling them to just wait where they are.

 

"Are we meeting players?!" She had finally figured it out.

 

While they were waiting she felt she had accidentally bumped into someone behind her. She turned to say she was sorry to them. But nothing came out of her mouth. It was Nicklas Lidstrom that she had bumped into!! (This was during his last season when he wasn't playing due to his ankle) He saw she was trying to apologize and told her it was no big deal. Other players like Pavel and Zetterberg had walked through the hallway where they were waiting.

 

Finally Dan Cleary came out and asked "Are you Carrie?"

 

I don't remember much of what else happened (I wasn't there, just heard the stories afterward), but he was super nice to her, took a couple of pictures, and signed some things.

The jersey says

"To: Carrie    Best Wishes

 Your friend, Dan Clear 11"

 

He also had a signed bobble head sent to our house a couple of weeks later.

 

I always teased her about wanting to meet Cleary over anybody else, but she really enjoyed the whole experience

Sometimes its easy to forget that while Dan Cleary the player has long since outlived his usefulness as a Detroit Red Wing, that Dan Cleary the man is actually a great person and a wonderful ambassador for not just the Red Wings but professional athletes in general. That story above my post is a good reminder of that.

 

In no way do I want him taking a roster spot up on the team anymore, but I'll always respect how he turned his career around with the Wings and his contributions to the team over the years.
