#2517302 Do you want Jonas Gustavsson re-signed?

Posted by lwing on 26 April 2014 - 06:05 PM

I like Gus, but Mrazek will do something you rarely see on this team. He will make a high paid veteran (Howard) nervous and play for his job every night. We need more of this - hungry young guys who have their sights on taking away other people's jobs. It is good for the entire team and organization. Plus, I am certain Mrazek will be our starting goalie in a year or two at most. Howard can't compete with this kids attitude or skill. Mark my words.

this team is going nowhere with Howard.

Cleary can play center.  


Can take draws, is responsible defensively and a good leader.  When is he coming back again?



Hopefully never.

NAME                     GP G A PTS +/-
Tomas Tatar            18 3  5   8    0
Gustav Nyquist          4 3  1   4    3
Daniel Cleary           25 1  2   3    1
Mikael Samuelsson 14 1  1   2    -1
:g: I guess I still don't understand Holland and Babcock
And Weiss also can't click yet...20 games already, he should be adjusted IMO. But for him I still have hopes, as he is only somewhat 30

What don't you understand ? Cleary and Sammy are on the 4th line. They're only playing because of injuries. If Pav and Bert return this weekend it'll be Cleary and Sammy out of the lineup, bank on it. I think Danny boy is close to being waived. Things are as they should.

#2451503 Tootoo Waived

Posted by ben_usmc on 06 November 2013 - 11:58 PM


All GMs make mistakes. Fortunately, all of the questionable 2012 contracts (sans that of Tootoo, who could be bought out if necessary) will expire this summer, as will that of Cleary.

but how the f*** do you make a mistake an entire fanbase can see before hand?

Sortof off topic but ive been checking out Tomas Jurco n the kid looks insane. Only 2 pts behind Nyquist on the griffins. Anyone have any idea when he'll crack the lineup? Next season?

Jurco was insane last year in the playoffs too.  Dude seriously had the puck following him.


You people would honestly rather have Tootoo on this team than Cleary?

Shows that Babcock and management believed Emmerton and Tootoo were the bottom of the totem and I would agree with them.


Think the forwards will look like this in a few weeks

yes.  Tootoo is a better hockey player than Cleary in every facet of the game. I am well aware of Cleary playing on the PP/PK but he is still just a blackhole of talent.  He makes anyone on his line worse.

Can't win consistently with guys like Cleary and Quincey in the lineup. I was so angry when we re-signed Cleary because I knew this would happen.

A chance to put the game away on the PP and Cleary can't redirect Z's pass in the net, or even redirect it.  I want to punch Dan Cleary and Ken Holland in the face simultaneously.

Best forward: Pavel Datsyuk. Amazing, as usual. Honorable mention goes to Henrik Zetterberg.

Worst forward:: Daniel Cleary. Once again, Cleary was totally worthless. He lost the puck constantly, did nothing of use, and committed what almost ended up as a very costly giveaway in the final minute. Honorable mention goes to nobody in particular.


Best defenseman: Danny DeKeyser. He did very well playing on the top pairing, and, sans a few minor mistakes, looked as if he perfectly well belonged there. Honorable mention goes to Niklas Kronwall, who had a pretty good game.

Worst defenseman:: Nobody. The defense played very well tonight, as the high-flying Canucks were limited to a mere 20 shots on goal.


MVP: Jimmy Howard. Solid as always, Jimmy made 19 saves on 20 shots against tough opposition. The single goal he let in was a bit odd, but not very stoppable.


Goat: Dan Cleary. See above.


Overall Grade: B+. This game was played very well defensively, but despite the number of shots the Wings took, offense remained a problem. Still, it was a worthy effort that garnered a win against a very good team.

SOLID game by all the Wings except for Dan Cleary. The guy flat out has zero hockey IQ. All he does is give away pucks and turns what should be good scoring chances into nothing.


- Pavs and Hank were great in the 3rd especially... no points but they did a great job neutralizing the top guns of the Canucks along with Bert

- Alfie was fantastic tonight again... he is such a smart player very much like Lidstrom and Pavs

- Kronners and Danny D were fantastic... I don't see why they cannot log these kinds of minutes each game, Lidstrom and Rafi used to do it every game as our top pairing.

- Howie was fantastic tonight when he needed to be



Hopefully the boys can keep it up!

#2435788 Report: Cleary to sign with PHI, 3 yrs, $2.75m/yr, NTC

Posted by Guest on 11 September 2013 - 01:04 AM

He was pretty useful during the unexpected playoff run. Significantly injured no less and still more productive than Franzen and Filppula.


I analyzed his production in the playoffs today. He had one legitimate goal (with a stick and against a goalie), the others being either empty netters (1) or deflections off his body (2); and he had one primary assist (a pass to Smith at the blue line), with the remainder being pedestrian passes to other players who ended up doing the actual set-up work. His numbers are very inflated.


In the meantime, he was making bad defensive plays and turning the puck over regularly. The latter became a commonality during the regular season; Cleary required extra time to bend over and pass it a puck, and even more than that to lift it into the air, and opposing players with no such restrictions in quickness (meaning nearly all of them) would generally catch up to him before he managed to get either of those things done. This was especially troublesome along the boards, because the opposition would simply hold him there and yank the puck away from him.

#2345460 Franzen should have been at Tae Bo class during the lockout

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 23 January 2013 - 01:22 PM

I was at the game last night. I just about lost it when he got knocked down in front of the net late in the 3rd and just laid there....


I wonder what Homer would have done.


This guy is just gone mentally. He can't create his own shot and doesn't work for any ice. He is done.

#2263032 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Posted by Donaldjr2448 on 26 February 2012 - 02:02 PM

Honestly I am sick and tired of the excuses with Mule. I am sick and tired of the lack of play from this guy and his china-doll performances in the last couple of years. This guy is making nearly 4 million a year with this team and plays like he is making the league minimum. I really hope Kenny can move this guy as soon as possible. I have had enough of this joke of a player. His intentional offside yesterday caused a goal, he took his time getting onside the other night against Vancouver and what do ya know, he was flat on his back when the Sedin scored with 15 seconds left. I could go on and on with his lackluster performances, but I feel that I do not have to preach to the choir.

Yes, by far this guy has been the most disappointing player in the last couple of seasons. (not including 2009-2010.) Time for a change Mule. Step up or move on. We've got guys in GR that are rotting away because we have your lackluster ass here not wanting to play because its the regular season or whatever your excuse is now. :ranting:

I think Franzen has been suckin. If he had gone down like a man last night he probably would have been able to block the Sedin shot that tied the game with 15 seconds remaining. We should have never been in overtime. He also is almost a guaranteed loss of possession whenever he touches the puck of late. Sit him down for a game or two and let some motivated youngsters show him what proper effort is.
