Cool. Done deal.

They said early in the summer, that Abby and Helmer wouldn't be signed til August! At least they tell the truth.

Solid. Now two guys will have to be moved. Meech is pretty much a sure bet to be gone, then it's a toss-up between Miller and Ritola. Going to be an interesting year.

But... but... but I thought Modano's signing wouldnt allow the Wings retain their young players :rolleyes:

Not that there was any concern of a deal not working out, its nice to see nonetheless.

That'll wrap up our postseason. Great job this summer by Kenny and Co!

According to Craig Custance's twitter, he is a sporting news hockey writer

"Told that Justin Abdelkader's annual salary is $787,000 on two-year deal he signed with Red Wings."

If true, Great Deal for the Wings!

I thought he had to get at least a 5% raise off his ELC.

That must be based on the previous seasons' salary. Last year, Abdelkader's base salary was $710,000 with a potential performance bonus of $140,000 (which he must not have met). Since he made more than $660k but less than $1 million he was due a 5% raise, which would've put him at no less than $745,5000. Not too shabby if you're Ken Holland!

Hey! looks like what I reported from when I spoke with him at the bar is actually more true than what other posters tried to claim. I guess he knows more about his contract business than LGW posters do....who woulda thunk!?? :blink:
