Cleary out at least another week

Dan Cleary (eye infection) hasn't skated with the Red Wings in over a week. Now the news out of Joe Louis Arena from The Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness is that Cleary won't be making the trip through Western Canada and will miss games in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. That means that the next possible game that Cleary could play would be Nov. 26 against Montreal.

Not good news, but not something that the Wings can't handle. Doesn't this seem to be much more of a long-term injury than anyone expected. And if it's an eye infection, why isn't Cleary working out, skating before team practices? What's stopping that? Is this a condition more serious than it sounds?

At least we're not being told it's an upper-body injury.

Good luck Cleary. Get well soon, will ya! I spent a week in a hospital once draining blood out of my eye... it's no fun. I think the best thing to do here is support the guy. Sometimes just knowing your friends are out there pulling for you makes a big difference. Cleary has about 2,000,000 friends in Michigan and 200,000 in Newfoundland. And we all need to show him we care.
