Nice Red Herring. You wasted your time typing up. My point is bringing up the "stacked roster" argument is crap. He scored 26 goals on an arguably thinner roster. A stacked roster has little to do with his production.
It's not fair that you brought up Draper's seasons at age 36, 37, and 38 on those stacked rosters. That was my point. Especially with the way Cleary is playing at 34. Stacked rosters can help players out a lot. See Jason Williams. Regardless or not if you want to argue about the roster he played on in his 26 goal season, I think we could both agree he has declined considerably since 2010-2011. You know I criticize him a lot but I respected his willingness to battle and fight for pucks and do the dirty work. It's just to the point where it has worn him down so much his body is shutting down.
This interview is part of why it pains me that I just don't want him anywhere near the team anymore. His play has improved with him back on the third line, but I just don't think he has anything left and I am afraid they will re-sign him. A great dressing room guy, clearly popular with not only his team but players around the league. It has been a pleasure for the most part having him these years, but the time is up and I hope we turn the page.
