In Topic: 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

25 July 2014 - 01:18 AM

I don't believe Cleary ever had a firm offer. At best I think it was tryout with Philly with a potential offer if he showed anything. St. Lame was really the only one pushing the idea he was turning down a guaranteed deal to come back.


Exactly…Cleary’s signing was conditional with Philly IF he could make the team. Cleary knew that he wouldn’t make the team so he went back to Babcock and Holland and said he wanted to play for the Wings knowing that Holland and Babcock had some weird hard on  for him. Hey if he can prove that he can make the roster (almost guaranteed) and be effective, I won’t hate the signing so much. But that is what it is. He’s back and pushing the youth back into GR AGAIN.

The South Korean team would get destroyed by the North. Kim Yung Un averages 14 goals a game between his trips to the moon and shooting 18 on an 18 hole golf course.

Apparently Kim Yung Un  is one of the best dancers in the world too! Sorry, 1st round exits and Holland's signings can make a Wings fan kind of senile this time of the year.

I really hope that this is the last comment on this thread...


Holland promised to sign Cleary for the 2014-2015 season. Done.


Cleary needs to demonstrate in camp that he can make the team. Not Done.


Yes, we all make the conspiring suggestions that Babs and Holland will turn a blind eye no matter what Cleary does in camp and put him on the roster.


The other alternative.. Cleary realizes that he can't make the team and walks away from the contract . 


This guy has to understand that a majority of Wings fans completely despise him and want him to go away as well as Holland. Neither will probably happen though.

I could see the scouting staff start dropping like flies after these summer's signings. I mean who would want to put the time and effort into scouting the young kids when you know they are just going to get buried in GR due to horrible signings that take up the kids roster spots with worthless players that don't even belong in the NHL anymore. Absolutely ridiculous. Not a chance in hell I'm going to a game this up coming season if Cleary makes the roster.


Steam blown until Sammy's signing is announced.

In Topic: Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Wasn't Byfuglien a forward in Chicago that was converted to D because he preferred playing that position? Kind of like Feds in reverse. I wouldn't mind him on the Wings if the price was right.
