Will be so, so glad to have Helm back in the lineup, but really hope they don't rush him or even come close to rushing him. Give him an extra week or so even after he is healed just to be sure. We will need him badly for the rest of the season.

Is he eligible for a Grand Rapids conditioning stint?

I think this would be an excellent 2/3 of a third line. Tatar is just as tenacious as Helm is. He can be the scoring tough that Helm has lacked, and Helm can be the freight train that Tatar isn't.


Perhaps bump Tootoo up with them and send Cleary down with Emmerton and Miller?

Personally, I'm just going with the assumption he will be out all season.  I don't take it as a good sign when we're practically desperate to have a 3rd liner back in the lineup.  He has good energy and all, but he'd be much more valuable if he could cash in on the scoring chances he has.

Hmmm, I really hope we get Helm back, especially our PK could use the guy. ;)

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

Every time this thread gets bumped, I expect some good news. Unfortunately, this never comes true.

That's by far the most adorable thing I've seen today. Miss you Helmer!

Last I saw, Helm expects to start skating again this week.  Maybe when he does get back, Cleary & Abby will already be back on the 3rd line to greet him.

Well I think we know what is causing all the back problems! He's getting too many adorable hugs from fans!


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

And your pessimism is based on what?  There is still 7 weeks left in the season and all of the doctors have indicated that it is not a serious injury and he should start skating next week.  There are too many Negative Nancies on this forum.


Do or do not. There is no try

Gotta trim the fat at the deadline with all these forwards. Tatar and Andersson need to stay in the lineup

Filppula-Datsyuk-Samuelsson
Franzen-Zetterberg-Brunner
Andersson-Helm-Tatar
Cleary-Abdelkader-Tootoo

I haven't heard anything on Bertuzzi I guess the injury is bad so don't expect to see him this year? No clue how Babcock is gonna run these lines hopefully a trade makes it easier
