This is total homerism but I don't care. With every signing, this team feels more and more like a ginormous juggernaut just waiting to be unleashed. Can't wait for the season to start.

Nice deal.

Looks like they say Abdelkader will get a similar deal. Assuming either Ritola or Miller are waived or traded and that if another D-man comes in Meech is gone the Wings have just around 1 million to sign a #6 D-Man

If Miller and Meech are both moved, I've got a Remaining Cap Space number of $1,847,500. That means Kenny could spend roughly $1,347,500 on a Dman now (and still have his $500k injury reserve) or wait until the deadline and bring in a guy making around $4.5 million.

Just some food for thought.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

That hit could have been considered boarding but man was it awesome. Good to see the extension made. I'm itching for the season to start more and more each day.

Not really Helm related, but I was so excited when I saw this news (not that it's terribly surprising...) that I bought my yearly new Red Wings hat a bit early this year! Just ordered this bad boy!

I know. Hockey season means summer is over and that means this insanely oppressive heat will be gone, too. Heat indexes of 110+ suck.
