#2531352 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by CaliforniaWingsFan on 10 July 2014 - 08:29 PM

So all in all a pretty good off-season so far right guys? Wouldn't be surprised if Dekeyser and Tatar don't want to re-sign with us. Absolutely ridiculous. At what point is Holland held accountable though? 




#2520495 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

This is why holland doesn't like bringing his guys up too early. But he drafts these young guys that are small and either can't or aren't conditioning to get to beast mode like subban. That kid is 24 and he's stout and energetic. Don't see much of that from any of the wings guys. They need to do something about their conditioning. It's not just about speed. It's about agility and speed. Like the lineman for Alabama. big strong AND fast.

The Canadiens were actually hitting them back hard and getting their fans into it which is something that the Wings just can't do. It's hard watching Tatar and Nyquist get completely destroyed and avoid hits the way they were in the Bruins series. I don't think that the Wings need to become the Bruins, but I think they definitely need some bigger guys in the lineup. Also, the s***ty NBC announcers kept harping on the "character" guys on the Canadiens, but I think the Wings need guys like that too. I like Glendo, but someone playing that role needs to be hitting and creating energy with every shift and scoring occasionally. Weise for the Candiens is a prime example of a bottom six grinder that the Wings need.

The better team won. Fully expected that result, just kinda disappointed with how it went down.

Another long summer. Holland has a lot of work to do. The Wings have a sound foundation, but clearly need some adjustments to get back to championship contention.

I think this series showed the glaring holes in this Wings team. I do not believe Holland will do anything or enough to make the drastic changes that this club needs to be competitive again. That said I will never follow another hockey team. Still proud to be a Wings fan despite everything.

Is howard the backup?

Yeah I just noticed that. A little suspect in my opinion. He should be playing, but the outcome would be the same so it really doesn't matter.

Everyone needs to be honest with themselves. Holland is going to re-sign Sammy, Cleary, Alfie, Bert, and Quincey. Next year Dekeyser will be playing in the minors for no reason and Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, and Jurco will be traded. They will be replaced with Ray Whitney, Jaromir Jagr, Teemu Selanne, and Hal Gill.

That is justf****** brutal officiating. Eddie defending it of course lol. So ridiculous. Not that the officiating is even needed for the Bruins to win this game.

This is how he should feel about signing with the Wings to get his Cup.

I wish they'd crash the net. Every time they do something happens. Cycling around the perimeter just doesn't work. It's a gamble because you know Boston will get their sticks in the way after a pass or two. Also, NBC sucks. They sound more homerish than Boston's local guys. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

It's really embarrassing really that this is considered a national neutral broadcast. The only thing they talk about is how great the Bruins are at all times. They do the same thing with the Blackhawks and Penguins too.

This team can't score, possess the puck, and they get dominated physically every single game. It is painful to watch this team sometimes.

Must win game. Glad with the effort so far. LOL.

Abdelkader has no business on the 1st line with two of the best players in the world. He is a fourth line grinder who deserves 5 minutes a game at best.

We need that mutant rhino from the Advil commercial. That's what we need.

It could explode into pucks and Rask would stop all of them (because the pucks would all be coming from the perimeter and be routine ass saves).
