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 :)..

AAV of $2.125M

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.

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?

i dont believe harding will happen

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.

This Helmgasm brought to you by Kenny Holland.

Oh Lord. I don't think I can ever look at Helm the same way again. :lol:

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.

Reports are he wants to go back to Minny.

A bit much? Hell, 2 million is a heck of a deal for Helm. Great signing.

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.

4 years? I'll take it! At first, I thought "Wow! $2 mil a year eh?", but honestly, for what he brings to the team, he's well worth it.

Not Bad.

That was damn funny!

I think this is a genius contract on Holland's part. Assuming the best, Helm can do nothing but add huge value to this team. All he needs to do is learn to bury those chances his speed is so good at creating and we're golden.

Great signing and a great bargain for what Helm brings to the table. He would score a lot more if he was given opportunities in scoring situations.

It is unfortunate that stats dictate a player's income.

It is precisley because of players like this that the Wings will be a Cup contender for a long time. Players who are willing to play for less than what they could get leaving cap space for the team to fill it's needs (and not over-paying for someone just because we have the money), players like Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen, Kronwall, Howard, all could have got so much more on the open market.
