He fights right? Like he could be someone to protect us from cheap shots/possible injuries and/or animals like Cooke right?

Commodore is actually 6'5" and 235 lbs.

As someone already mentioned, hopefully this will be another successful Holland reclamation project.

He's slow, but could he really be slower than Salei?

Is he just as nasty as Salei though? Salei was a prick at times to the opposition last year.

Is he physical and can he play defense?

Honest question.




Yes - he can/will be physical.
Yes - he can play D.

He could turn to be good addition for Detroit. Commodore was loved in Calgary, in Carolina... in Columbus it didn't worked well but it's COLUMBUS...

Definitely more physical than Salei.

Indeed. And please don't forget he never played for joy, just for money. Now he has enough after than contract with CBJ. Nobody knows how he will look like when he finally understands there is a chance to win.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Honestly I didn't think Salei played with the edge I was hoping he would.

I don't know how nasty Commodore is to play against most shifts. He will drop the gloves on occasion.


If you guys are thinking of this as Holland's big move, then I get being disappointed. But the Wings needed a bottom pairing guy to replace Salei and they got a decent one for cheap, who could turn out to be a steal. And if he doesn't, it's one year.

Commodore was only making $1.4M in CB and he got bought out. Why the hell would you offer him another $1M, that's like giving a reject player a raise ... so he gets the buyout money and now a $1M from us ??!!

Damn ... if only Stevie Y was still around, he would have prevented this stupidity.

Wait. People are freaking out about a $1M depth signing with size and grit that at most will play 5/6 spot on the D? Really?!?! (You really think he's meant to replace Raffi?!lol!!) I don't like the guy much, but I fail to see how this is a terrible, terrible, end-of-the-world signing. He doesn't work out, he gets the ax. He does, we got a decent D-man on the cheap. Don't understand the reaction at all.

He was set to make $3.35M and had a $3.75M cap hit. $1.4M is what he'll get from the buyout plus $1M from the Wings so $2.4M total. So it's a million dollar pay cut for him.

I think it's the we got Ralfalski's $6M to spend and all we can get is someone else's dirty seconds. No half decent Dman, no attempt to trade a 4th or 5th round pick for rights to Wiz, Erhoff, etc. and all we have to show for today is Commodore ??!!

Well... That was unexpected.

Low salary because he'll still be receiving salary from the Jackets, since they bought him out with 2 years left on his old contract. He's big, and can be aggressive, and has the coveted right handed shot, so if he's effective, then it's a good signing.

Now, someone needs to make sure he wears #64 this year. That would be epic.
