Sweet. That means we got a pair of 10+ goal scoring PK assets for an average cap hit of $700,000 each.

Helm and Abdelkader's agents will have a tough looking at these deals and asking for 1 mil or more for their clients.

If you check all of Chicago's guys that fill the same role seem to be getting at least twice that, and from other teams!!!

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

So I'm thinking this puts Abds at 850k and Helm at 950k.


Abdelkader had a cap hit of 850k last season, so he has to make more than that next season due to a minimum mandatory raise of I think 5%.

Excited to hear this. Hope he can ditch the injury bug and have a consistent season. I think he can really surprise a lot of people this season now that he'll be more comfortable with his role on this team.

But Leino had a 850k cap hit as well and then the Wings signed him for 800K.

Leino wasn't an RFA unlike Abdelkader.

Yes he was.

July 6, 2009 Re-signed as a restricted free agent by the Detroit Red Wings to a two-year contract.

Well than I was wrong on that, but I still remember that while he is an RFA has to get a raise on a new contract.

Based on which number though? If it's total earnings you have to consider that Abdelkader played something like 33 games in GR. He didn't really earn the full 875K or whatever it was and he got a hell of a lot less money relative to what he would earn if he were in DET. I'm thinking the 5% raise might just be based on his total earnings from last year.

I'm not exactly sure if this is the right number on CapGeek but I wouldn't be surprised if it were as far as Abby's total earnings go: $519,689

If that's the right number then he'll at least have a contract of $545,673.45.

NHL contracts are the best way to show someone you care. It is like this tangible thing that you can point to and say, "Hey man, I love you this many dollars worth."
