Commodore is this year's version of Salei and Lilja and that type of defenseman the Wings have brought in as the #6/7/8 guy. If the Wings didn't sign a guy like Commodore, Doug Janik would have been the #6/7 type of guy... They aren't signing Commodore to play 20-some minutes a night and make a huge impact. They want someone solid on the bottom pair who can play some PK minutes, block shots, etc... If he sucks, he will be benched, waived, replaced by Brendan Smith, whatever.
I would have liked to see Babchuk instead of Commodore.

Be honest, outside of Lidstrom, Kronwall and Stuart, the defense looks grim.
