Daniel Cleary wants to play again next season, even if it's with an AHL team.
Cleary ended up playing in the minors last season and while that was difficult at times, the 37-year-old ended up having a good time. "I really enjoyed what I did last season, being in that role, helping the young kids grow into being future Red Wings," Cleary said. "I’m training to do that (playing). It took me a few days (after being sent down), but after I settled into it, I really enjoyed the experience in Grand Rapids. It’s a great coaching staff, great group of guys, great training staff. It was a lot of fun, and I still want to play. The thing is, though, is can this body hold up over the course of a season? But I feel I can help mentor young players, and show them what it takes to play in the NHL." Cleary has 938 games worth of NHL experience and another 121 contests worth of playoff experience under his belt. So if Cleary is willing to accept a minor league job under the idea that he'll help mentor the prospects, there should be some interest in him. Jul 20 - 4:38 AM
