Last time was almost totally on Cleary. He was offered a 3-year deal by Ken, turned it down....and then came crawling back cuz his heart was still in Detroit? If that was the case he would have signed the first deal. It was only when he found out that every other team thinks he is worthless that he came back cuz his 'heart' was here.

 

And this time around he won't give it up because of some 'handshake' deal that was made last time. He actually thinks he deserves special treatment after that god-awful season he had because of that 'handshake'.

 

As much as I blame Holland for signing him (and I do quite a bit, for he has total power to just walk away and not sign him), even he knows what a bad deal this is. Already he's trying to pawn it off on players/coach & good/bad loyalty quotes.

 

I can't be certain who initiated these talks but I'm sure his agent wasn't going to stop letting Holland know about that 'handshake'. And Holland to his greatest fault went for it.

 

I know monetary wise it'd be stupid to turn it down, but all this talk of his 'leadership' is bulls*** because the guy isn't a leader. He's a hound chasing a squirrel. One of your 'team leaders' shouldn't be dragging the team down, especially if that is literally the only supposed thing he brings to the table. If he was truly a team leader he would be doing what is best for the team, and whats best for the team is him off of it.

All of the above. What does that tell us?

To be fair, going back the last 4 playoffs, Cleary has more points than Franzen. 

 

 

(I keep repeating that stat because I still can't believe it's true). 

 

 

I was and still am a big Cleary fan.  I can't fault the guy for still wanting to play hockey with the Wings.  But they should not have re-signed him.

Must be nice to have such a great team that you can waste a roster spot and a million and a half bucks on a TRAFFIC CONE.

 

That is just plain insulting...

 

...Traffic cones serve a useful purpose.

I don't like the signing, but for the sake of the team, I hope Cleary proves us all wrong.

"I don't know why they're not coming here"

 

This is why, Ken. This is why.

As a moderator here, I'm just glad the Wings didn't announce the re-signing of Quincey and Cleary on the same day.  

 

Remember when we all used to joke about them both re-signing like we thought it wasn't possible it could happen?

 

I feel like it's our fault. We made this happen. We joked too much...

Who else burst out laughing when they heard? :lol:

 

All Ken Holland has done this offseason is sign players for Grand Rapids...at least that's what we hope he's doing...
