Kukla's Korner Hockey

from George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press,
Forward Aaron Downey will sign a two-way contract to remain with the defending Stanley Cup champion Red Wings.
The NHL Players Association web site no longer lists Downey as unsigned. The web site lists Downey as a Wing with compensation of $575,000 for the 2008-08 season.
I spoke to Red Wings assistant general manager Jim Nill shortly before noon and he said “we’re very close” to signing Downey to a one-year, two-way contract.
