Daniel Cleary boarded a plane this morning for Traverse City after reaching an agreement to return to the Detroit Red Wings. Cleary told the Free Press around 10:15 a.m. that "I'm back. Signing deal tonight." Befitting the number he has worn the past eight years with the Wings Cleary had made an 11th-hour pitch to stay with the team he loves. General manager Ken Holland said today that he and coach Mike Babcock met Wednesday with Cleary who then returned to metro Detroit. When the numbers didn't crunch Cleary's way earlier in the week he accepted an offer to go to Philadelphia with a handshake agreement on a three-year $8.75-million deal to be signed by the end of the month. After a miserable Tuesday a day when it sank in that he'd be moving to Philadelphia for three years while his wife and two daughters would stay in Detroit Cleary reached out to Holland and Babcock arranging a meeting

Daniel Cleary signs one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings

After all the talk about wanting more money, Daniel Cleary decided to stay a Detroit Red Wing by signing a one-year deal worth $1.75 million on Thursday, September 12th. It’s been a long off-season for Cleary. In early July he was offered a three-year contract with the Red Wings but he turned it down asking for more money. The Wings responded by going out and signing Daniel Alfredsson...

New faces at Red Wings camp

New Detroit Red Wings forward Stephen Weiss says the franchise's perpetual contender status was a big reason he decided to come to Detroit.

The Red Wings officially kick off training camp with three practices and a scrimmage today in Traverse City, and the Left Wing Lock's Sarah Lindenau's posted a link to the scrimmage's box score (it looks like all of the Wings' scrimmages and the Red vs. White game will be available on Pointstreak). This morning, the Free Press's Helene St. James ponders several...

Red Wings early overnight report: on the first day of camp, Abdelkader and Tatar’s future

Aside from Clearygate and the various media availabilities that took place at on Thursday, training camp did get underway at Centre Ice Arena. The Wings have been split into three teams--teams Lindsay, Delvecchio and Howe--and depending on who figuratively gets the short end of the stick, their days break down as follows: The first team to practice takes part in a pair of practices...

Red Wings training camp, day 2: on Bertuzzis, Nyquist and Babcock’s cheesy exhibition expectations

The Red Wings' second day of training camp seemed to and did in fact involve more dump-and-retrieval drills, some power play work (which involved Mikael Samuelsson donning a black defenseman's jersey), neutral zone drills and the kind-of-sort-of-re-debut of Daniel Cleary, who was wearing #71 temporarily as the #11 jersey he's going to wear needed to be sewn up--thus one...

Audio from day 2 of the Red Wings’ training camp: DeKeyser, Kindl, Howard, Nyquist, Babcock & Ber2zi

The Red Wings' didn't sign anyone today, and Daniel Cleary made his training camp debut--wearing #71, the "extra" jersey, until Paul Boyer could get a #11 jersey sewn up (when Mikael Samuelsson played on the point on the power play, he wore a black #71 jersey, so I'm guessing that the Wings made up red, white and black extras with that number)--and Team Howe...

Afternoon Line

Maybe it’ll turn out that Helm and Mikael Samuelsson and Todd Bertuzzi are lost for the season and Cleary is back as an insurance policy, a fourth line stabilizer. If that’s the case, then signing him is simply a lateral move. But if his return means guys like Tatar and Nyquist don’t get their shot, it’s hard not to see this as a bad move for the Wings. -Allan Muir of...

Red Wings early overnight report: on the second day of training camp

Things get complicated in the neutral zone, and that's what Friday's practices (despite its Bertuzzi-Nyquist-Tatar tales and quips and quotes) were about, though I do need to note this comment that Wings coach Mike Babcock made to the Free Press's Helene St. James, because it's essential: Mike Babcock said he reassembled his lines just based on “who has a chance...
