I wasn't really sure where to put this but this place seems as good as anywhere...

Expect Dan Cleary to don his third different number for #RedWings upcoming season. The veteran has ditched 71, flipping the digits to 17.

I know a lot of people will say they wish he wasn't going to don any Red Wings jersey this upcoming season but I still love Danny and I hope he has a solid season. And I for one, couldn't stand seeing that 71 on the ice, I think he will look great with number 17 on his back.

Wait, I've missed something here... why wouldn't he just go back to #11? Does this mean that Alfredsson is definitely back for another season?

Because kronwall never was elite. Even with dat and z on the decline they still can play at that level it's just not what they use to be.


Again, though, the post said 'have' and 'is.'  It did not say 'had' and 'was.'


So, just for full clarification, please list the players on the Wings roster that you consider to be elite currently.

They were yes. They were what Crosby and malkin are now(talent not the whining).


I'm not sure how whether or not they were is relevant to the conversation.  The post you challenged the usage of the word 'elite' in was specifically talking about the team currently and its players over the age of 31.  Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Kronwall were mentioned as being 'elite,' and you took issue with that word being used with Kronwall (but took no issue on it when it came to Datsyuk and Zetterberg).


Am I to take your response of 'they were' to mean that they are not now, in your opinion, elite?  If so, why did you question/challenge the use of the word 'elite' in association with Kronwall, but not Datsyuk or Zetterberg..... since you do not believe they are elite, currently?

To me elite is like top 2 or 3 at that position. Like goalies. Elite we had guys like Brodeur Roy and hasek now it's henrik and quick.

So to me kronwall is very good but not elite.


You didn't argue against Zetterberg and Dastyuk being elite, though... just Kronwall.  So, does that mean that you believe that they are the top 2 or 3 at that position?

Ehrhoff obviously wanted to play in Pittsburgh because Wings never given opportunity to top that offer, which they would have.
