Very sad news. He would have been a huge piece of our playoff team. :(

Helm's just had a bad luck kind of year. I look forward to him bouncing back hard next year.

They've got to move Filppula or Franzen to third line center.

Nyquist-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Filppula-Zetterberg-Hudler
Miller-Franzen-Cleary
Holmstrom-Abdelkader-Conner

BIG loss. Helmer is one of the few that give'r every time he is on the ice. Get well soon!

Seriously, after having this happen to two of our guys, can the Wings brass make some sort of arm protection mandatory? The longer gloves, anything. Like Mickey keeps saying, I don't think the extra mobility you get from the shorter gloves is worth risking potentially season ending injuries over.

I doubt Helm will be back for the playoffs. Hope he has a quick recovery and can bounce back from this.

I honestly don't know why guys aren't all wearing the sleeves that bertuzzi wears to protect from skate cuts. would be an easy transition in the offseason to just start practicing with them. I understand you can't make huge equipment changes in the playoffs without risking ineffectiveness but in the offseason there is no excuse.

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

Its going to affect the team in one of two ways: either the wings get fueled by this injury and they "do it for helmer" or they just lost some motivation that they lost helmer back on the first game back. I hope it fuels them rather than bring them down, but I know it's got to be frustrating to just get back your #1 PK'er back have that extra motivation that things are looking up from the injury bug and then you just get a swift kick in the crotch (i know ladies are present!) like losing helmer in game 1.

I hope Helm is going to be alright, the Wings are going to miss him in the line up. Be nice if the Wings could catch a break or two

It would be more of a rallying cry if someone from Nashville intentionally took Helm out. I think because of the Weber hit on Z, the fluky goals, and the crap penalties all game, that should be enough to get the Wings fired up mentally.

Not much of an update at this time, but news will be coming in the next few hours...

https://twitter.com/#!/AnsarKhanMLive/status/190447452724264961

Ken Holland said today that "Zetterberg is fine,'' and team would have update on Helm surgery before its 1:30 (CT) practice.

Saw an article on either freep or mlive that they had the option to use Sheehan to fill Helms place. Is that the case?

Im on Freep right now and didnt see it. I'll check MLive but if you have the link post it.

I find it hard to believe Sheahan would see time but Im hoping he could. Just his size would be an improvement over Emmerton (if in fact he were to replace him)

Sheahan, Conner, Mursak and Nyquist are all available.

I'd be willing to bet that either Sheahan (for his size) or Conner (for his speed) would be a Helm replacement.

Get well soon, Helmer.

Tough injury to take, especially since the whole thing wouldn't have happened if he didn't come back for game 1.
