That's actually the last hit Cleary has thrown.

I'm happy that people are finally starting to recognize Cleary's stunning ineptitude. His physicality has completely disappeared, his Hockey IQ has always been below average (watching him dick around along the boards with the puck while Datsyuk and Z skate around in scoring areas is beyond frustrating) and the amount of injuries he's had over the past 4 seasons (the dude is always hurt) have completely robbed any speed he had which, in turn, makes him ineffective as a defensive forward.

Not to mention ever since Pronger broke his orbital bone back in Jan of '08 he's played the game like a scarred kid at recess. Cleary is the epitome of the Wings problem of getting pushed around and doing nothing to stand up for themselves.

His expiration date expired 2 seasons ago.
