Let's hope the young beast is ok... We really need him if we wanna go anywhere in the playoffs.

Can we get one break please... in terms of good news on an injury

Ansar Khan ‏ @AnsarKhanMLive
Babcock said he does not know extent of Helm injury but that it didn't look good. Appeared to hurt his knee on Moore's thigh

Helene St. James ‏ @freepwings
Babcock says Helm doesn't look good, but info still scant

Helene St. James ‏ @freepwings
Helm probably a left knee or charley horse, happened when he went to hit Moore

When will this end. Unbelievable how bad it is right now. We were solid all season long, and now that the playoffs are right around the coner BAM!!! I'm hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. Heal up Helmer, we need you.

Babcock said it wasn't a charlie horse in the postgame interview with Trevor Thompson. This does not look good.

Helm walks out of room limping. Says he is in pain. Will have MRI on Monday. Doesn't know extent of injury

I like to wait a few days before I get injuries checked out as well....

I'm really not trying to be all panicky at all but if it's a sprained MCL, regardless of grade, is Helm's season pretty much over? He'll need one month at least but then we've also painfully observed Kronwall and Zetterberg play less than their capabilities for months after they had the same injury. I wonder if the Wings might just shut him down in that case.

If it's his ACL then my perception is Helm's season is most likely over based on previous athletes who've needed surgery/recovery time from it.

Well, they're going to be flying back to Detroit Sunday - I know Red Bird One is impressive and all that, but I'm sure it doesn't have a full medical suite onboard...
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Even worse, if he is seriously injured it could affect his speed whenever he does return.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This is really bad news. It sounds serious, either MCL or ACL. This is terrible. :(

Even worse, if he is seriously injured it could affect his speed whenever he does return.

Maybe initially, but not long term. See Mursak, clearly he's not 100%, but at the start of next season we'll see him jet propelled again.

Jeez this last month has been a nightmare. There's only a couple of weeks left, these injuries have to stop.

I have to agree. Winning the Stanley Cup takes a healthy squad. It looks like we were going to get everyone back by the playoffs. If Helm is out, that hurts.

This is really bad. Hoping for some positive results, but it looks like Helm may be out for some significant time.

Clearly, this is a major loss going forward. Outside of the big guns obviously, I think Helm is the most important forward on the team in the playoffs. He always ramps up the intensity and plays at a higher level when it counts. Not to mention, Helm is the most relentless and effective forechecker on a team lacking in that aspect. His speed and ability to put pressure on the defense is invaluable.

Helm also happens to be the best penalty killer on a crappy PK unit overall. Things are really going well for the Red Wings right now.

You think they would have some sort of hook up in San Jose though, it's not like it was some Rec league or something.

The swelling likely had to subside. If he couldn't bend his knee that usually means the swelling is crazy or he has no ligaments left which I highly doubt. Almost all athletes wait a day at least until they get the MRI for that reason.

well the playoffs can lick my nuts. can we just forfeit a few games to get healthy without losing more guys, its not like we put up major points in those games anyways.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?
