If true, I love this signing. Conks should be able to handle at least 20 games for us this year and give Jimmy a break.

under 1 mil. hell ill take it. still 7 mil to spend...

6 Million left if he is taking a million.

I said before that I actually wanted to see Larsson play in the NHL, so I am disappointed by that. But Conklin was choice four for me. Osgood, Larsson, Volkoun, Conklin. I am by no means mad, and I am sure he will do fine as long as Howard is healthy.

Excellent! Once in a while we get a goalie who can actually stop pucks any goalie should stop. With Jimmy Howard any soft wrister from the blue line could be a goal. Last time I had such good feeling was in 2008 when... Ty Concklin played for us.

I always feel nervous when someone fires a shot at Jimmy. I can only imagine what players feel. If I were a Red Wings player I wouldn't believe Jimmy at all.

Did you watch the playoffs this past season? That Jimmy Howard fellow played pretty good in them.

And :thumbup: to re-signing Conklin if it is true.

And Jimmy felt nervous with Ericsson and Hudler in front of him...

Back on topic....welcome back Conks :thumbup:

I'm pleased. Conks knows how to be a good backup. He cheers the other guy on and pushes him a bit. If he gets put in the starter role, he does his best and doesn't take it badly when the starter returns. That takes a man with no ego. In other words, a perfect Wing.

Welcome back, Conk Block!

Great signing. Really the only goalie the Wings were going to go after at this point, so I'm glad it worked out.

Welcome back Conks, having a better team in front of him will make him a better goalie - and that cap hit is great.

Other than Larsson coming back this is exactly what I was hoping for so it's a great signing and I'm thrilled they were able to get it done. Conks is a good solid back-up and I think will do great again here in Detroit!! Welcome Back Conks!!
