According to the Detroit News, the Red Wings are close to bringing back Chris Chelios, Kyle Quincey and Darren McCarty.
Chelios and McCarty are unrestricted free agents, while Quincey is a restricted free agent.

Terms of the impending deals are not yet known, other than McCarty set to sign a two-way contract

To bad more players didn't have his attitude towards playing. Not sure how much response he got when he went looking for a 1 way contract but he seems happy in any role they give him.

Chelios has also been quoted as saying he will wait to sign for what ever Detroit has left after signing there other ufa's/rfa's.

Both guys just want to be a part of the team they don't care if it's from the press box.

All I've heard from Chelios is that he will not break Gordie Howe's most games played record.

I hope Chelios plays in the Winter Classic (he should.)

I know that playoff games don't count, but if Chelios playes in 49 games this season he will have suited up in 1 more NHL game than Gordie Howe.

The games record is up for grabs. Chelios has always said he doesn't want to be the oldest player to have played in the NHL. There's a few years left for that.

if they all sign it means the wings go into training camp with 2 goaltenders, 9 defensemen and 14 forwards who have to pass waivers..

and over the cap...

and thats not including Ericsson, Howard, Kindl, Helm, Abdelkader, Emmerton, Mursak...

defensive trade ahoy

Kenny never makes things easy does he?

If by not easy you mean is perpetually in Cup contention... there are plenty of other teams who could deal with some of this difficulty.

Hopefully bringing out his walker doesn't count as too many men on the ice.

How can he be bankrupt? He's made nearly 50 million since 1989-1990.
