As the lockout looms over the entire league with less than 40 hours left under the current CBA, Detroit has re-signed Michigan native Justin Abdelkader.

According to, the deal is worth 7.2 million over 4 years for a cap hit of 1.8 million a year. This is about 500K a year too steep for my liking but who knows, the kid is still young. Now that he has some help on the bottom lines with a healthy Danny Cleary and the addition of Jordin Tootoo, he should end up with around 30 points this season.
