The conditional pick requires that Commodore, who signed as a free agent with Detroit last July, must play 15 or more regular season games for the Lightning and the club must qualify for the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The 6-foot-4, 227-pound Commodore has played in only 17 games for the Red Wings this season, registering 2 assists.

I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
