Interesting.  Anxious to see the dollar/term figures.

Dan Cleary to Flyers .. Like the signing

You and me both, Ricky.

As of now, Daniel Cleary has not agreed to deal with Philadelphia Flyers. Remains hopeful something can be worked out with #RedWings.

Jesus Christ, Danny, just f*cking SIGN ALREADY!!!  Ken Holland was willing to ALLOW YOU to come to camp on a TRY OUT.  Do you really think he’s going to sign you?  It’s not going to happen.  Go to Philly.  Please.

Change that quote to Helene St James hopes something can be worked out with the Red Wings, the Wings have moved on.  Poor Helene, she may have to apply to become a beat writer for the Flyers now, her fan girl act is an embarrassment to journalism.

A three year deal is exactly the kind of deal Philly would offer.

They’ll screw it up and overpay in years and amount, but Cleary would be a well-liked player there by both players and fans.

Would have to be under 2mi so the flyers stay under cap, right?
I doubt he asked for less than that, to stay in Detroit… And now all this fuss about trying to make it work in Det?

Sometimes I dont understand these players..

When Pronger is officially put on IR, the Flyers will have $2.9M in cap space.

Cleary goes before Bruuner?  I bet Damien is strangling Neil Sheehy with his phone cord right now.

Their current cap number includes 25 roster players, so Pronger will be one move with two more to follow in order to create one spot for Cleary.  Their two cheapest dmen (of which they have 10 signed atm, which is why I’m using them here) likely could be waived with no cap penalty ( I don’t know what their clearance eligibility is), so at a minimum the Flyers will have ~4.3 mil in cap space when they get to 22 NHL contracts.

They literally have 3 contracts under some form of active buyout right now, which doesn’t even include Pronger.  It is beyond comprehension how Holmgren still has that gig.

At what they were asking, shouldn’t he?

No.  No.  Not at all.  Absolutely not.  Brunner was asking for $3.5 as a reward for the exact same production as Alfredsson had last year in Ottawa.  Cleary was asking (apparently) for $3M a year for year years as a reward for dragging down every line he was on in the regular season last year.

I would overpay for Brunner ten times out of ten rather than giving Cleary anything attached to a three-year contract..

I don’t care what Cleary’s salary ask was, Ken Holland should’ve pulled a muscle laughing Danny out of his office for even requesting a three-year contract.
