Via RedWingsFeed, MLive's Ansar Khan's confirming the Free Press's Helene St. James' report about Daniel Cleary:
Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Cleary has an open invitation to join the team for training camp next week in Traverse City on a pro tryout, but with no guarantee of a contract. Holland hasn't heard back from Cleary, who hasn't indicated whether he will accept the invitation.
The 34-year-old forward is one of several notable unsigned free agents. Cleary turned down a three-year contract offer from the Red Wings just before the start of free agency on July 5.
The Red Wings value Cleary's abilities, leadership and versatility. But Holland has said the team would need to shed salary and trim three players before it could even consider signing him.
