Darren Helm agrees to 4 year, $8.5 deal in Detroit.


A bit much perhaps? Anyways good signing, nice to have him in the fold for a few years!

Edit; Damn, one minute too late :)..

I had him slated for a 2 mil Cap hit. Great deal Kenny! Now all Kenny has to do is re-sign Abs and Quincey. Sign Parise, Suter, Moen (or Prust) and Harding.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

Yes! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

This Helmgasm brought to you by Kenny Holland.

Money on the board!  Current total: $7

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

This is doubly good news in that we get to enjoy Helm's chaos for four more years and his rehab must also be going well to give Holland his signature!

Good signing & while it seems just a little high right now, I think over the 4 years that will end up being a good price, maybe even a little bit of a bargain. So Abby next but how many years/$s? 2-4 with a hit around $1.6-1.8 maybe?

All the UFA coverage I've seen is pointing to Harding wanting to go somewhere he has a chance to be the #1 guy. I agree, don't think it will be Detroit.

He will be a steal in the last two years of that deal

I disagree from what ive heard, Harding love Minny and wants to be the number 1 there. He currently is in talks with Fletcher and is looking for a multi year deal. I dont necessarily believe hell stay there, but he seems willing too.
Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

Reports are he wants to go back to Minny.

I am very happy he will be around for another 4 years. He will do great things as he improves his skills.

Thanks Offsides

Not an overpayment by any means. It's right on par with comparable contracts, plus there's the (very likely, IMO) chance that he will grow into, and play above the contract.

Very pleased with the signing.
The most popular choice among the Red Wings as to who would volunteer to play goalie – several Panthers did in their game – was Brendan Smith.
 
"He's pretty competitive and he seems to be good at everything," Justin Abdelkader said. "He'd volunteer himself."
 
Babcock was a bit more hesitant about Smith. "Yeah, yeah, just work on getting out of your zone," Babcock said

Not Bad.
