    I think he'll score around 25. If he plays with Datsyuk I think it could be closer to 30 but I don't think he will. He should be healthy now and contributing much more than last year.
    You need centerman that can play two ways and if they donít play two ways in the end, you canít win, because the guy you are counting on canít get himself on the right side of the puck enough. So sure he can score, he can score but his team loses every night, I didnít know that was the objective. I thought winning was the objective. So if you centers canít play down the middle, and canít play without the puck, you have no chance.

    Based on his history and if he can stay healthy I see him as 20 goal guy.

    I'm going to say about 22-24 goals with his assist numbers being pretty much the same. I think getting the knee surgery will be his key to success. Cleary was awesome in 10/11. Let's hope he can get back there.

    I'll be the pessimist/realist here and say 11-15. Cleary has injuries problems (as i'm sure your all aware) and that causes his production to be limited and he is already 34 and his curve is likely continue downward. He also has 22+ goals once as a Red Wing (During 11-12). While still a useful vet and good depth if healthy in the playoffs, I think the Red Wings will have better options in more prominent offensive roles.
