How bad is this? What a crock that he gets hurt as soon as he gets back. <_<

Detroit Red Wings center Darren Helm is out for the playoffs after having surgery Wednesday night to repair lacerated tendons in his right forearm, the club announced today.

Helm is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the start of training camp in September.

Helm's was cut by the blade of Alexander Radulov's skate with about six minutes to play in the first period of Nashville's 3-2 victory in Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinals at Bridgestone Arena.

It's a huge loss for the team, which relies heavily on Helm's speed, forechecking ability and physical play, particularly in the playoffs.

The injury likely will prompt coach Mike Babcock to move Justin Abdelkader from fourth-line center back to third-line center, where he played the final 10 games of the regular season, when Helm was idled by a sprained left MCL.

Cory Emmerton would then move from wing back to center on the fourth line. Rookie Gustav Nyquist or veteran Chris Conner likely will be inserted into the lineup for Game 2 Friday in Nashville.

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Hope it's not like what happened to Mikey Mo. So. Nashville took out Helm and tried to injure Z after the game was over. What next? :unsure:

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

I dk, he didn't react right away which makes me think it wasn't too serious.

Yep. Helm is having surgery right now. Babs says he doesn't know if any tendons have been cut. Good god.

Which means that, at best, he's got severed muscle. I'd say done for the series, if not for the entire playoffs.
