WTF!?!?!? GD it! Please Helm, don't turn into a china doll!

 

Well when you bang and crash at his speed, its tough not to be injured often.  I will say this though, this team is MUCH better with him in the lineup.  I don't think I can recall a player on the Wings contributing this much to the team without it appearing on the score sheet.

Tremendous player don't rush him back, let his back heal to 100 % or at least extremely close to it. This team is different with him in the lineup wish we had more Helm's.

I wish we had some bigger Helm's. Imagine Helm at 6-2/210......... That is what we need about 5 of..............

Injury Update: Helm's MRI shows inflammation only. Will not play Tuesday vs. Dallas. Questionable for the weekend.

Ugh, keeps getting worse, although at least it is inflammation only, but I wish he could stay healthy, especially now we need Helmer

Considering he aggravated it enough to justify an MRI, finding out it's only inflammation is a bit of a gift.

 

I want him back as much as everyone here on LGW, but rushing him just opens a door for worse injury.  Get well soon, Helm.  I miss being able to post this...

Ya like I said I am glad it's inflammation only, it just sucks we will be another week without him. Obviously I don't want him to rush it, you can't mess with back problems, I just want him to be healthy soon so he can energize our team again :(

He is a major asset to this team so couldn't be more glad with this news that it isn't long term. Hope he takes as much time as needed so not to aggravate it further.

Dang it.  The one game he played in we were flying out there.  Just like Mick says, everything is just a little faster when he's out there.

No injury brings me down as much as Helmer being down. I get so frustrated mentally when he's down.

hope Helmer gets back soon....having his speed will be very nice


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

KHAAAAAAN!!!

 

Darren Helm said tests Monday (bone scan, CT scan) were negative. Will see back specialist in next day or two. can't figure out the issue

 

I suppose it's good news that there's no bone damage.  Means the problem is a muscular issue, and not bone/skeletal.  Another case of "It might be bad, but it could have been much worse", perhaps...

This is becoming stupid....may as well put him on LTIR for the season and let him come back in September fully healed...remove him from the roster and get someone here to take his place for the time being...

Turns out it's a small tear or strain in a ligament in his lower back, but that's actually a bit of good news (in that, it could have been much worse, but isn't).

 

Per Helene St. James/Free Press...

 

The Detroit Red Wings got some good news on center Darren Helm after his visit to a back specialist.
 
"They ruled out everything bad," general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press. "It's a small strain or tear in a lower back ligament. He got an injection, said he felt better right away."
 
Helm is now under orders to rest until Monday, at which point the Wings anticipate being able to start treatment and get Helm on a path to a return to the lineup.

 

However, there's still no timetable for his return.  There's more in the story, so I encourage you to click the link and give it a read.

Wtf
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.
