The Malik Report
by George Malik on 09/09/13 at 08:11 AM ET
Last night, TSN's Darren Dreger Tweeted news that (possible?) former Red Wing Daniel Cleary had yet to determine his place of employment for the 2013-2014 NHL season, and the Saint John's (Newfoundland) Telegram's Robin Short asked Cleary what was going on--and he received a response:
After a self-imposed Sunday deadline to figure out to which training camp he will be headed to this week, Cleary said in a text message to The Telegram last evening he’s still not certain which way to turn.
The 34-year-old Riverhead, Harbour Grace product is an unrestricted free agent, and has made it abundantly clear his preference is a return to Detroit.
The Red Wings have also expressed a desire to resign Cleary — he was their second-leading scorer in the playoffs, and led Detroit with five points in the second-round series against Chicago — but the problem is the team has 16 players under contract, and plan to carry 14.
“This is a crazy today,” Cleary said via text. “I need some time to think here.”

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
