I didn't think Bertuzzi was overrated by fans on here (most thought eh), the coaching staff is a different story though. I seriously was just very unimpressed by Cleary, maybe it was the injures that caught up to him, but manly in the playoffs not only did I feel like he wasn't playing up to his capabilities, he actually became a liability on the ice. He wasn't Hudler bad, but when he was on the ice you could count on him turning it over.
So what exactly is your rationale here?? Hard working players that gut it out and command respect from the locker room and the coach don't belong? Ahh, I finally understand your first post now.....
Actually wtf is going on??? More Cleary hate?
Don't you ever steal this award away from Bertuzzi or Happy Huds from this offseason. Truthfully, you saying you watched EVERY single game makes your "opinions" seem quite a bit off. Oh well, guess I had blinders on to everyone but Datsyuk or Hank and can't appreciate the hard working players that you need on a team.....
And if you think saying "hard working" for Danny is something that shouldn't have him on the team then this is going even further off track man. Seriously.
I don't hate cleary and wouldn't be upset if we kept him, because every player should be allowed a down year, I'm just saying if we could trade him away I wouldn't shed a tear.
Purely going by point production is the reason we had a scrub like Jason Williams playing for our team at one point,they only tell half of a story. He was a scoring monster before he went down, but when he came back he wasn't nearly as effective. I know he'll be back next year and hope he can kick it back up a gear (IMO), but if he can't don't expect me to be a person saying I told you so or anything, I'd much rather eat crow.
Do we have a candidate for "worst post of the year" award?
I need not comment in the fashion I wanted to since others put it in the same baffled outrage I would have, but what in gods name were you thinking.. progressively worse yet being increasingly more productive?
It's not about saying something unpopular.. but saying something extremely stupid.
post season wise it could go to A LOT of players
That title belongs to Eaves or Stuart.
