#2686207 Dan Cleary Gets Training Camp Tryout

Posted by krsmith17 on 23 September 2016 - 11:45 PM

For those that like to s*** on Cleary and / or Holland for keeping him around for so long, maybe you should read / listen to some of the interviews by Holland, Martin, or Cleary himself over the past week or so. It's very clear that he's doing a great job with the kids in Grand Rapids, in particular, Bertuzzi. I think Cleary may be a big factor in Bert's success thus far. Like him or not, Cleary is a stand up guy, with an unbelievable work ethic, and if that rubs off on any of the prospects, even a little bit, he's well worth yet another contract. The kids love and respect the guy, and rightfully so. Keep up the good work in GR Cleary, even if most of what you do down there is off the ice...

It's a f****** PTO, if he succeeds he will get a job on re griffins and given the amount of remaining talent there chances are his veteran experience will be very welcome. Maybe a call up here and there if the Injury bug comes back.

Like it not Cleary making the GR roster or not is going to be the least of the Wings problems this year.


I don't always agree with you but this is spot on.

Oh yeah, I remember he didn't go down to GR right away. That all makes sense.

 

It'd be better to have ex-NHL as the vets sharng advice, so more power to Cleary for doing that.

I have no idea why a PTO would make a person so mad. As many posters wrote above, it allows him to be part of the early training camp process which hurts absolutely nobody.

Because it's conspiracy theory month.

Then why doesn't he just sign a deal with GR? Stay the f*** away from that ficus! That's a jizz free ficus!

He had 15 points in 35 games playing on I'm guessing the third or forth line. Having a veteran presence like him in the AHL is not a bad thing and can only help with player development.

I want him no where near the Wings, but I'm just fine with him playing on the Griffins as long as he can hold his weight.

 

This.

 

Was going to say when I watched some of the GR games he wasn't that bad. He should be nowhere near the NHL though.

Cleary has a legendary work ethic.  He goes to camp.  He shows the kids what a work ethic looks like.  He fills an empty leadership role in the locker room and forward spot on the ice while Abby plays for USA, and then he goes on his way, either to GR, another team, or retirement. 

 

Since he's on a PTO, we're getting his services for free.

The guy is out there having fun with his old teammates. I don't think anyone has any real plans of signing him and I'm sure Cleary is aware of that.

I fully support Dan Cleary in his aspirations and wish him the very best of luck with making the team. To me it's quite simple: if he makes the team on performance, he belongs.

Now skate like the wind Danny boy!




#2685708 Whose autograph is this? Can someone help me?

Posted by NerveDamage on 09 September 2016 - 10:39 AM

FWIW:

 

Autographs.png

 

Certainly not a perfect fit, but there are some similarities.

So it could be Slava Kozlov's?

 

It has some similarities but also some clear differences, I guess the thing could be where she got it from,  maybe it was signed in a rush, like if met at a public place, rather than an item signed for an auction or an special event. where they could take more time to sign it properly.

 

Either way it's pretty cool




#2685343 Mrazek's "Farewell to the Joe" Mask for 2016/2017

Well it was still the Soviet Union when he was born.

 

Fun Fact (Or Not So Fun): His hometown, Yekaterinburg, is where the Tsar Nicholas II and his family (including the now infamous Anastasia) were exiled and later executed.

 

And he was born, and is now interred, in St. Petersburg. 

 

I can only assume that means that Datsyuk is actually Rasputin.
