Our blog name will make sense for another 4 years, at least. Not that it was ever really in doubt. The contract is worth $8.5 million and carries a cap hit of just over $2 million. The deal was announced on Twitter by Darren Dreger.
My total thoughts are here:http://3rdrounddraftpick.blogspot.com/2012/06/why-darren-helms-contract-is-perfect.html
But basically I think it's the perfect contract and am 100% satisfied with it. Anyone who isn't is a bad person and should feel bad for having a bad opinion.
I fully expect Helm to get the A this year and then the C once Zetterberg is done winning a few cups wearing it
Small potatoes really. I'm a big fan but this was expected and I'm happy with the cap hit. Now, bring on the big boys...
Yay Helm!! I never really put any thought about what NOHS would be called if the Namesake hadn't returned. I never really doubted him staying though.
Bertuzzi on Helm returning: “He drives me to be better seeing him walk around shirtless with a 9-pack and you’re only supposed to have 6.”
Good deal. I actually believe its higher than most other teams would have paid but none understand Helm's potential like we do. If he were 50% on breakaways he would score 30 goals a year.
@magnum9 Once Helm learns to finish well he will be lethal threat against any team. Pav needs to have a little one on one training session.
good deal for both sides. When Chris Stewart gets 3 million for 30 points, you can't complain about Helm getting 2.25 for 26 points and SO much more.
i'm looking forward to reading the comments when the red wings facebook page announces the deal. so much hilarious ignorance.
