#2531425 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Dan Cleary after a pillow fight. 


Also, here's what he said about the MASSIVE amount of fan/media criticism today, from MLive:


"Everybody is entitled to their opinion," Cleary said. "You try not to let any of the negativity – or the positive comments – affect you. We live in the day of social media; anyone can say anything. You can't worry about what people think. You got to do what you do."


Good on him. 


Like I said, I don't like this signing but I sure don't blame Cleary for wanting to come back and play for the Red Wings. 


And he is one of the toughest and most fearless players on the team.   The ice packs are from years of going to the parts of the ice Franzen is scared to.

This is actually very sad because instead of being hated vehemently, Cleary should be celebrated for the hard-nosed player he used to be. But with this latest move Holland has turned him into a persona non grata.

It's a horrendous signing, and all I can say is that it saddens me. Cleary's a guy who worked his ass off for the wings for years and deserves to be remembered for that. Not for this. 


This is the positive spin I can see about this right now:


He plays really well and earns a job - which actually implies he will make the team better - and does so. 


Or he plays so horrendously badly that he gets waived and sent to GR or released. 

#2531321 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

I liked Modano, it's a shame it didn't work out/freak injury. You take a chance on a future hall of famer. Tootoo was an interesting idea, but the rest were garbage from the beginning.


The whole Modano situation could've played out completely differently if not for a freak injury. It's silly that people knock it given what happened. That one ought to be disqualified if you ask me.

all of them minus Colaiacovo


What kills me is that once the guy was healthy, he wasn't so bad for us. I was actually surprised we bought him out given our lack of depth on defense and that once healthy, he played relatively well, considering he was cheap and coming off of injury. At the very least, it didn't seem like he was the first salary problem that needed addressing, that's for damn sure.

Obviously I hope the kid wasn't hurt, but everything about that situation is pure comedy gold. I couldn't help but laugh, harder and harder with each replay.

This was the result.

I wanted to use the Winter Classic GDT I made one last time, adjusted it to fit this game. 


Huge one against the Leafs, this is a game we really gotta win. Get it done boys.

At the game. More leafs fans than wings fans. This upsets me. Along with the little s*** kid with a sign in front of me. Already yelled at him. No f***s given.

Abdelkader is a game time decision, if he's out Landon Ferraro will be making his NHL debut. If that's the case I have no idea which line he'll be on. Leafs lines are an educated guess.

#2451378 Tootoo Waived

Posted by GoWings1905 on 06 November 2013 - 01:44 PM

How bad was the 2012 summer for Holland? Samuelsson is a three million dollar healthy scratch, Tootoo gets waived, Colaiacovo already bought out and Brunner is with another team. That's brutal and unfortunately still costing the Red Wings now in roster and cap space. Bringing Cleary back only furthered the issue. 


I hope Eaves sticks around over Samuelsson. Eaves is a good 4th liner and penalty killer. Another body has to go for Nyquist to come up, which I assume is the ultimate goal here soon.
