Without scouring the twitterverse to see if this is already out...Darren Helm agrees to 4 year, $8.5 deal in Detroit.

Great deal for Detroit. Helm is one of their most important forwards not only for his defensive skill but the energy he brings to the team. 29 other teams in the league would have paid this to have him.

Good signing. I was hoping he'd eventually play in Winnipeg at some point.

Same thing I wrote on Wings board

I don't mind giving Helm 4 year deal. He is still young.

2.125M isn't much for 3rd line C when Cap is 65M +.

Also since Helm's game is based on his speed. I think this contract will cover his prime years.

This is a steal for Detroit. A little over $2 million for what he brings is great value.

Same deal that Kelly got from Ottawa back at the '08 draft. I like it.

Great player, very important to the team. He's easily worth the 2.125m cap hit.

Great contract. Maybe 3 years would've been a little better, but with 2.125 mil per for one of the most important pieces on the team, who cares? Just glad Helm is signed.

Wings fans would know best, but I think this is a great signing for the Red Wings. Helm is a key cog in the Red Wings machine.

I would've been more surprised if he made it to FA. He seems like a guy that Detroit REALLY likes.

I find this pleasing. Now to get Abdelkader and Quincey wrapped up and it is on to July 1.

You got a good deal on Slater as a reward for your patience.
