Cleary is still a good player. I believe he can still give 16 mins a game with some time on the PK and chip in points as well. Last year he was on pace for just around 30 points, but also put in 10 in 14 playoff games as well. He is a give all type of guy as well, someone who will lay down to block a shot when needed. He can give Giroux a spell on the PK when need be as well. I actually don't mind a two year deal, three years is pushing it a little. If his salary is under 900K though he it would be alright.
He had 33 points in 75 games in 12 and 46 points in 68 games the year before. He can still contribute offensively and would look good on the third line.
We almost surely would have to be having trade talks with some team if we are being brought up in signing Cleary. We just don't have the room with out LTIRing Pronger on day one. Maybe we are up to something???
Coming off a contract worth 2.8 annually, I don't see him signing for 900K. I could see 1.5 million or around there though. I honestly think I would prefer him over Gagne right now.
