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

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?

Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

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.
