Still no Cleary
UPDATE: General manager Ken Holland just said that Cleary's status is day-to-day right now. He doesn't know if Cleary will be making the two-game Florida trip. Holland also said that "We've got him seeing eye specialists."
Cleary could be back in the lineup tomorrow night. What's nagging on most everyone's mind right now is that Cleary complained of blurry vision earlier this season, hasn't been on the ice for four days and that Coach Mike Babcock called his Monday absence a personal day but 24 hours later Cleary was at the doctor. All red flags, but hopefully that's all they are and Cleary will be back soon.
The Red Wings just started their Wednesday practice before flying out to Tampa and Dan Cleary isn't on the ice. Cleary hasn't been with the team for the past four days, missing the past three days of practice. (Sunday was an off day.) Coach Mike Babcock said yesterday that Cleary had an eye infection and was at the doctor.
Hopefully there will be an update after practice with something concrete about when Cleary will be back with the team.
