Daniel Cleary said he didn't consider hanging up his skates during the off-season.
"No, no. God no," he said, when asked if he considered retiring in the offseason. "I love it. I love it. If you don’t have it, the burning desire, then, you know, you fade away. But, of course, everyone who plays as they get older loves it. They love the preparation, game day, the training. I love all of it. Listen, I definitely I feel like I have given my entire body to this game, so I feel proud of that, that’s for sure. I don’t look back with any regret. I mean, you want to play as long as you can. It’s the best game." Cleary may want to continue playing but his offensive production has been almost non-existent in the last few seasons. It's a nice story but he won't hold any fantasy value in 2015-16. It will be hard for him to crack Detroit's lineup this season. Cleary signed a one way contract which means he'll probably stick with Wings, but expect him to be a healthy scratch more often than not.
