Downey on waivers, Helm to GR

UPDATE: According to Ken Holland, Darren Helm has been sent to Grand Rapids and Aaron Downey has been put on waivers to be reassigned.

Darren McCarty has a groin injury and will start the regular season in Detroit on injured reserve.

Kyle Quincey is not on the ice and not on waivers. The team has until 3 p.m. Wednesday to finalize its regular-season roster. The team is likely shopping Quincey around for trade.


There's no official roster announcement yet, but here's who's on the ice right now for this morning's practice ...




Obviously that's more dollars on the ice than fits under the cap. But the exclusion of Kyle Quincey, Aaron Downey, Darren McCarty and Darren Helm are of note.
Tomas Holmstrom is not on the ice. He missed some action late in the preseason with a banged up knee, but he did play in Sunday's preseason finale.

I'll post more when I find out.

Actually, (at least according to what was on the ice represented about $54.3M (not including Leino -whose salary isn't listed on the site- and Meech's which I averaged for his cap hit, and I don't know if he has bonuses or whatnot).

My bad. I forgot to add in Holmstrom's salary, so yeah, you're right. I need to pay more attention.
