I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!
That means we will probably never see him in a wings lineup
Don't see how he was doing anything but giving his opinion. Calling someone like a 5 year old is the only thing off in this discussion. It's unfortunate that Franzen discussions always go this way. We even did better with the rape discussion, haha.
Anyway, we don't know what this means besides the fact that he's only on IR not LTIR. We'll see if it's just a precautionary short term thing on the path of him coming back or maybe he was concussed again or whatever.
Ok so I understand this kid is suppose to be the next big thing in Hockey but if they are going to let him get away with this kind of a hit he isn't going to last very long. Someone is going to put him on his butt.
Still trying to save face 9? Wow! Now I am sending Q and E to the minors? Best if you just stop now. Besides, no one cares anymore. Thanks for playing.
I really don't care anymore. And am getting tired of seeing it in every single thread. Everyone is trying to move past it all and enjoy the fact that hockey is back but the ones who complain the most are the ones that bring it up the most now.
I can;t believe all the hatred for Cleary. All he wants to do is play! He is being told by his family "please daddy please daddy play" and from the team "please 1 more year" and all I see is haters hating on Cleary. Man I can;t believe some of you. You just aren't true fans if you hate Cleary and don't want him on the team. I just can't believe it.
Who's to say that he doesn't make the fourth line or at least get a call up here and there? Even if he only gets 2 call ups I hope it's against Dallas and Ottawa .
Are people really pissed off about a depth signing probably around league minimum? Just be happy the Wings finally have a winger who has great size and will win some battles along the boards.
We have a few on here that think any sort of toughness or someone who will drop the gloves is worthless. Just ignore them. I still like watching big hits and fights. And I'm sure some others do as well. Not everyone wants pansy hockey.
