I'm not sure if those quotes are supposed to be things I've said, but to be clear, I liked Flip. He played heavy on the puck (as Babcock likes to put it) and clearly had offensive talent. For whatever reason though, he just never fully took that next step with Detroit and honestly a new start in Tampa is probably best for him.
for a second I read: "He played heavy on the puck and Cleary had offensive talent"
I agree that filp needed a new start though and tampa seems to be working out for him so far so good for him, I'm glad.
