According to today's Detroit Free Press, Cleary turned down the Wings offer prior to them signing Alfie and Weiss. He was looking for 3 yrs at around 2.5 mill per year.
Flyers continue to take steps backwards. Signing him means one of the young players who need those minutes to develop won't get them. I'd rather have McGinn on that 3rd line getting to play more and growing as a player.
Cleary's a good player but on the decline the last couple of years and I can't see him being such an upgrade that it would be a difference maker.
Unless Homer needs one more over 33 guy to get a gold plated AARP discount.
And a bit classless on Homer's part stringing Gagne along all summer , telling him as soon as the season started and they got $$ he'd sign him. Nice.
Hextall can't take over fast enough.
