Cleary is getting 3rd line minutes, time on the penalty kill and no power-play time, exactly the way he should be being utilized. He started out playing on a line with Zengerle and Campbell but has recently been playing with Nosek and Bertuzzi. He hasn't been playing great by any stretch but hasn't played nearly as bad as some people would make it seem. It blows my mind how much people want to hate on Dan Cleary, I just don't get it... He has a goal and three assists in 13 games, which really isn't that awful for a 36 year old that has had some major injury issues over the past few years. So why not s*** on Hoggan? A guy that is the same age, the captain of the team, and has one goal and zero assist in 19 games, and is a -3 compared to Cleary's -1... Cleary is down there for one reason, and that is to help "coach" all these kids, and from everything I've heard, he is doing just that.

Cleary is an NHL vet with over 1000 games to his name and 400+ points. He should not even be in the minors, he should have retired gracefully and maybe gone down to Van Andel as a member of the coaching staff off the ice. No one is dissing him just the way that the whole saga was dealt with be Kenny and Cleary.

Well I think we should get the PP sorted let alone the pk, it's been good dam awful. We now have two legit rh shooters from the point in green and pulks yet Blash didnt use a left and right combo on the pp versus the Oil. Lets get the pp units set and stick at it.

#2623235 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

With 7 one way D in Detroit, and now 11 D in Grand Rapids it sure seems like some deal is on the cards whichever way you look at it. I know some will be going down to Toledo, but it bodes well for the future. I believe we have 5 rh on the D in GRs so I really think Blash will won't one of those in Detroit to go with Greens rh shot. But who ?

The Detroit Red Wings were among the teams interested in unrestricted free agent defenseman Johnny Oduya.

According to two separate sources, the Red Wings reached out to Oduya last week, but the veteran blueliner appears set on returning to the Chicago Blackhawks.


Meanwhile, Wings GM Ken Holland is believed to be exploring the trade market for a second- or third-line forward.

He could go after one of the remaining unrestricted free agent forwards, if he can sign one at an affordable rate.


taken from the TFP, if this is the case youve gotta believe Kenny has something else up his sleeve that may make

us all sit up and take note.

If a deal is in the pipeline for bringing in a #1/2 D you can bet your house O or Marchy will be in that deal. The day Big E and Q are our 3rd pairing is the day we'll be a legit contender, until then it is what it is.

gotta be a trade in the pipeline with the log jam we have now, if Kenny pulls off a deal for a legit top pairing guy 

this will be one of the best July 1st weve had in years

Try and move up the draft to get Hanifin,Werenski or Provorov would be a good move.

#2606968 Dylan Larkin on Team USA for World Cup

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 10 May 2015 - 09:53 AM

Larkin looks a very smooth skating 200' 2 way centre, havent seen much of him but am taking in todays Slovenia game and so far he's been on against Kopitar's line for most of the first period.
