At this point Cleary is pretty much Brent Gilchrist without the excruciating playoff run to make us appreciate him.
If we are clearly not making the playoffs or not a threat at the deadline we could probably trade him for a 3rd to a young countender needing "playoff experience".
Trade Cleary, or not resign him after this season; buyout Samuelsson and CC. That would give us a total of about 24-25 million in cap space. Resign Howard for 4.5, Flip for 4, Smith for 1.5, and Brunner for 1.5 and you are looking at potentially 13 million to remake the roster a little. Sign Semin for 6 with a promise to play for Datsyuk and sign Whitney for 4.5 and our roster becomes a lot more threatening.
Looking at capgeek, I am amazed we are paying Colaioccovo, Ericsson, and Quincey a combined ~9.7 million. Add in Kindl and White and we paying 13-14 million for 5 defenseman who most other NHL teams would either demote to the minors, use as healthy scratches, or play on their last pair.
