Herm Rejoices: Helm Re-signs

It got a little louder in Brazil yesterday, as well as in many areas of Red Wings Nation, when the Wings announced they had re-signed forward Darren Helm to a 2-year deal. Reports indicated that Helm will be making $1.825 Million over the two year span, $825,000 in year one and the remaining million in year two.

As was expected, the gears have finally started turning in the Big Red Machine again after the signing of American hockey legend Mike Modano was confirmed. This likely does, however, mean that the Wings will have to let go of a roster player to keep the balance between optimal talent and staying under the salary cap.

We can only wait and see what the next set of moves--or non-moves--will be. Stay tuned.
