Quick Hits: 8/5

Someone's Gotta Go- We locked up Darren Helm...that's awesome.  But now we already have 23 guys signed on the roster which is the league max.  To exacerbate things, not one player can be sent down to Grand Rapids without clearing waivers.  Waive someone?  Trade someone?  How do we make room for Abdelkader?

A few more takes on Mike Modano's addition to the Red Wings, possible $250,000 performance bonuses- Turns out that Mike Modano's contract could end up costing the Wings $1.5 million on Cap space if he meets certain performance metrics.  George Malik from Snapshots does the usual digging and lets us know what he thinks.

Wings Set To Introduce Modano Friday- Hockeytown Happenings returns from a brief computer-less hiatus to report on the press conference that will occur tomorrow afternoon.  Are you ready to see #90 don the sweater?

Asdfasdf - Eu nem sequer penso que é uma palavra em Português, mas desde que Darren Helm é o jogador preferido Herm na história de sempre ... Sou capaz de compreender a sua excitação.

The Greatest Red Wings of MY Time: #12 - Graham gave The Hole in the Door a major face lift to make it look a lot more like Matt Saler's On the Wings...not sure if that was deliberate or not.  Regardless, looking over "Amerinadian"'s favorite Wings over the past 30-some odd years, we come to Chris Chelios...everyone's favorite ex NHL-er who owns a string of Chilli restaurants.
