Right now this is all just speculation. Just because Cleary has a contract, it doesn't necessarily mean that he's going to make the team. He may show up to camp, and look horrible compared to the kids. Right now, we just don't know. Or, he may show up to camp and blow everyone away. Either way its good for the Wings (so long as if he's horrible, they send him down or release him). 
 
Personally I think Jurco has proven enough to warrant NHL playing time, but management might feel different. 

The contract that Cleary signed includes a bonus if he plays ten games with the Wings. Because this whole contract renewal thing has to do with honoring Holland's word that the Wings will take care of Cleary this year, a lot of us suspect that Cleary will get 10 games with the Wings (unless he's absolutely terrible or injured). In those 10 games the organization can determine whether Cleary will be an asset to the team for the remainder of the season, and Cleary gets the money he left on the table last year. My prediction is he plays 10 games and that's the last we see of him.

This is what I see facing Boston for Game 1
 
Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelkader
Nyquist-Weiss-Franzen
Tatar-Sheahan-Alfredsson
Miller-Helm-Cleary
Glendening/Andersson
 
Kronwall-Ericsson
DeKeyser-Quincey
Smith-Kindl/Lashoff/Marchenko
 
Pretty, eh.

I like how it looks, actually, given the roster we have. I would switch Nyqvist and Alfie, though.

That plaque put 15 years onto him.  Still cool honor, though.

Calgary sounds like the place for him, if he wants to be with his besties.

In Topic: Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

So initially the idea was you either donated money to ALS research organizations, or you poured a bucket of water on your head. I love how this is catching like wild-fire, but I hope some of these people are sending a check in the mail, too.
