Chelios, Quincey officially re-sign
25 years and still going strong (or so he'd have us think). As per Detroit's official website, Chris Chelios officially signed with the Red Wings earlier today, as did fellow rear-guard Kyle Quincey. Terms of both contracts are not available as of yet, but Quincey has signed on for two years. These signings only add to the defensive depth of Detroit, a team that boasts arguably the best defense unit in the league. Being so close to the cap and having an excess of NHL ready defensemen and youngsters waiting to come up from the Griffins, except Holland to deal the newly signed signed Andreas Lilja. His $1.2 million would come off the books if he's dealt for a pick, and would alleviate some pressure on the cap.
