I'm wondering if Cleary agreed to a PTO with us and then leaked to the media that we had the intention of signing him to a huge contract at the end of camp. This was probably all a stunt to get leverage for a better deal with Detroit.

Honestly, I'm indifferent to the situation. Cleary would've have been nice despite that large cap hit. A Talbot-esque cap-hit, with which he ended up, would have been even better.

Still, McGinn sounds like a nice plug on Couturier's wing at a cheaper price and a little more spark in his step at this stage of his career. Couple in the fact that there are plenty of options, we're fine with or without Cleary.

I knew something was up when Cleary and Wellwood both had the same number.
