Default Bolts acquire Mike Commodore

And as I post that, we traded for Mike Commodore? Are we just trying to help the Wings out and give them some space?

Warm bodies on the blueline to keep from depleting Norfolk depth. Probably means not good news for Hedman.

Makes sense. Or maybe he's just a cheap warm body so yzerman can trade Clark for a 3rd?

A conditional 7th in 2013. Conditions are that he plays in 15 games and we make the playoffs.

That makes this dumber to me then. We just got rid of a $3.5 mil contract that was overpaid, now we get a bigger contract that is even more of an overpayment that will weigh us down next year (because I'm pretty sure his deal goes through 2013).

He wasn't playing much in Detroit. If he finishes out the season for us he'll have played in almost as many games as in Detroit.

That deal was bought out. He's currently on a 1 year - 1m deal, that expires at the end of this year.

He'll cost us $243,902 for the year. He's a UFA on July 1st.

He only costs us a pick IF he plays 15 games for us, or we make the playoffs. Likely will cost us our 7th rounder, which is a cheap new body.

Plus, he'll be physical. Like Tim said, more than likely simply a warm body to offset Hedman's injury without depleting Norfolk's playoff run.

Ok, well then I feel much better about this. Spector was saying he still has that deal.
