Recommended Posts


DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings took care of some pre-lockout business Thursday, signing free-agent defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo and re-signing forward Justin Abdelkader.

Colaiacovo received a two-year contract worth an average of $2.5 million per season. Abdelkader inked a four-year deal, believed to be in the neighborhood of $1.7 million per season.

The moves will be announced on Friday.

Abdelkader is 219 lbs; give yourself a slap!

You can love Hansen all you want, and I do also, but there is a massive difference!

Hansen is better than him and signed at $1.35 mill...just sayin.

Looking at these replies of this was a steal (which it was), Hansen is a mega steal!

I laugh a little whenever I see news of Abdelkader because I am reminded of a conversation with my roommate.

I was looking at a list of stats on an EA Sports NHL game and Abdelkader was at the top.

"What the F**k does Justin Abdelkader lead the league in?" my roommate asked, incredulously.

"Uh... the alphabet?" I answered.
