Cleary Gets 2nd Chance In Detroit

from the Edmonton Sun,
Daniel Cleary is on the bottom of the NHL pay scale, but he's landed right on top of the hockey heap after signing with the Detroit Red Wings a month ago. Cleary, 26, who played 220 games with the Edmonton Oilers from 2000 to 2003, has turned a camp tryout into a one-year contract with the Red Wings for the NHL minimum salary, a $450,000 deal he signed Oct. 4. All things considered, Hockeytown isn't a bad place to land for Cleary, who was deemed excess baggage by the Phoenix Coyotes and cut loose before the NHL lockout.
