    Cherry rips Holland

    We could use a guy like Colton Orr......never score a lot of goals but a real team guy who would hold other teams accountable when they constantly run our premier players or our goalie......he doesn't win every fight but he has broken a few noses around the league!! Being a huge Helm fan I remember in 2008 when he was called up for the Cup run, he had a thing going with Brooks Orkpik......whenever Orkpik took a few liberties with young Helmer, McCarty was right there right away to make sure things went "smoothly". This is something this years team misses badly!

    Helm's new training regimen

    I think Helm should be given the odd powerplay shot & see what he can create with a little more open ice.....not sayin he should be on the # one or two PP units....but the odd chance would be nice. I can think of a few times when due to botched line changes Helmer has ended up on the ice with Zett or Dats & the puck has gone in the other teams net. I remember this preseason when Helm anchored the "Grand Rapids Red Wings" against the pretty well full Toronto Maple Leafs & he got a goal & two assists on the PP & was first star. Late last season & early this season our PP has been kinda lack luster & I think a little fresh blood on it might help!

    Wings offered Jovanovski 2 years, $5 million

    I bet Helm is happy he didn't sign with Jovo wouldn't finish off his Darth Vader Death Grip (from last springs playoffs) at training camp.....haha

    Aaron Rome

    To me thats just a late,late hit.....the puck was way up the side boards & Horton had nothing to do with the play anymore. I feel if they would have severely punished these types of hits earlier in the last few years there would be a lot fewer concussed players today.....once a guy gets rid of the puck he is out of the play & it shouldn't be open season on him.....most of Scott Stevens hits were of this nature & it should have been stopped then,instead of being praised. Now a lot of key players are getting concussions & a lot of them never return to their original selves on the ice. I like a hard hit as much as the next guy, but these Torres kinda hits have to be stopped or the game will become like UFC in nature.

    JR should shut the hell up

    How about on the ODD powerplay?......wouldn't it be fun to see Helm digging it out of the corners or behind the net & feeding it to our two smartest players!!

    WCQF Game 4 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Coyotes 3

    Had to laugh at the CBC announcers who thought Helm was faking when he was high sticked.... had to show three replays before they unwillingly admitted the stick hit his face. ....guess they are favouring the Jets!
