Why the Red Wings Re-Signed Cleary, and Why We Don’t Like It

As was probably expected amongst the pessimists of the fanbase, the Detroit Red Wings have re-signed Danny Cleary to a 1-year, $1.5 million contract, plus a possible $1 million in games played bonuses, for a possible salary this season of $2.5 million.
