Gus and Tatar are good enough, and IMO have done enough, for at least one of them to start this season with the Wings somewhere in the top 9. Either would improve the team, and while having depth is important, it is somewhat less important when much of that depth is bringing nothing to the ice.

If the Wings were able to land a guy like Horton or Ryder after this season, then Bert absolutely should be shown the door. Oops- that pesky NTC could be a hurdle there.
Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if Cleary is re-signed. Babcock loves him. You know how Holland likes to hold onto guys. They would claim something like, "he provides veteran leadership."
