#2436137 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by Danielsm on 12 September 2013 - 11:32 AM

I wish I could fly to Traverse City and shake Dan Cleary's hand.

 

 In this day and age of pro athletes chasing the Big $ at all costs, the guy walked away from millions of dollars, put his ego aside, crawled back to the negotiation table to eat some major crow, all so he could stay with friends,  teammates, and an organisation and town that he loves.

 

Cleary went toe to toe with one of Detroit's all time biggest nemesis, Chris Pronger, he went after Dion Phaneuf, knocking him silly, then getting an assist on the goal. He's scored numerous playoff game winning goals.  Even when he's basically duck taped together, he's still finishing checks and jumping into scrums. He is a winner, he is the epitome of a team heart and soul guy, he has hands, grit, and smarts.  He is a major contributor at all costs.

 

$1.75m!  Talk about a Hometown Discount!  

 

Totally glad he's back. And frankly, I can't see him really giving a s*** what number is on his jersey, as long as the logo is the Winged Wheel.

Let's not forget the playoffs:

 

# POS PLAYER GP G A P +/- PIM PP SH GW S S%

40 L HENRIK ZETTERBERG 14 4 8 12 3 8 1 0 1 58 6.9

11 R DANIEL CLEARY 14 4 6 10 -1 2 1 0 0 20 20.0

13 C PAVEL DATSYUK 14 3 6 9 2 4 0 0 0 39 7.7

 

And we just got him for peanuts.

 

Let's all take a step back and think about the positives of this situation instead of irrationally whining.

Watching Tatar out there, it makes me wonder what if we had him in the roster against the Hawks. All we would have needed was one goal from him.




#2416771 Will Brunner be back?

This. While its fun to watch good skating, puck protection is important. Nyquist gets bumped, Seabrook scores. Gotta be tough on the puck.

The photo I was also referring to as well, just found it again.

I love our youth. I only want to trade youth if we get legit top liners.

At this point I don't even want to trade them at all. They've proven they're top liners.

I'm so glad we didn't give up the damn lead again. Go wings go! If we can beat the #2 seed, we can beat the #1!
