Not sure what happened, but he's back to "we have no idea when he's going to be back" status. Still a status-quo prognosis on Bertuzzi. He'd like to play this season, but doesn't know.

Wonderful.

Hopefully Helm and Bertuzzi can at least be our "deadline acquisitions". I miss Helm. It would be a real shame to have him miss an entire shortened season.

Call it....Helm will be out the rest of the season and playoffs....why risk it? Kenny, do what you have to do, either go with this team or make a deal or a player or picks, whatever.  Helm needs to just be done and come back 100% (hopefully) in September...

 

Hell, sign some NCAA UFA's as soon as you can....make some deals or don't...just stop trying to get Helm back when he isn't 100%!  Bert and Sammy I could care less about coming back, but keep Helm out until he is 150% if you have too! This team will make the playoffs and that in and of itself will be a winning successful season considering the situation they started the season with and the injuries throughout...

This is just a condensed season, so if Helmer isn't 100 % don't come back. Not worth risking your career for just a few games, take the summer to become healthy again and hopefully getting over this injury soon.

Just put him and Bert on LTIR and then their cap falls off the books as well as their roster spot.  Get someone here to play in the top 6 and center the third line...there are players like that available still....go for it...or don't...

Backs can be tricky. I hope he can be 100% next fall I wouldn't even try to have him play this year. Risking his career for 5 weeks of games just isn't worth it.

In case anyone missed it (the news is a page or so back)...

Just when Detroit Red Wings center Darren Helm appeared on the verge of returning to action, he experienced what he called “a minor'' setback on Monday.\

Helm left the ice after 10 minutes during an optional practice due to the ailing back (slightly torn disc) that forced him to miss all but one game this season.

He will stay off the ice until he feels better and won't play Wednesday against the Minnesota Wild at Joe Louis Arena.

Saw that eaves news too. We need to just stop practicing or wrap our guys in bubble wrap for the practices. 


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

It's official, Eaves is the most unlucky man in the world. This is unfortunate, I really like his play as of late.

Eaves is fine according to Holland, just sore, no broken jaw.

Am I in the wrong in being annoyed with Darren Helm in this situation? (I think I am)

 

Does he not know his limits? Is he himself the reason for the setback because he pushed himself too hard? Sit until it doesn't hurt....

He wasn't trying to be Superman. He took it very easily up until that point. When he was skating before and after and then finally with the team during practice he said he was gradually increasing his workload. He did that all the way up until he felt like there was no more practice could do, but he was still unsure how it was going to be during an actual game because it's two completely different situations. He tried pushing it full-force to simulate a game and that's when it acted up. It's good he sat out and tried pushing it before a game rather than during a game. Not only could he have gotten injured worse in a game, he also would've ate up a roster spot that night that could've been used for the full 60 instead of the first 10. 

 

We all know it's frustrating but Helmer's just as frustrated as anyone of us, you can read it within his quotes. The boy loves this sport and he gives it his all every shift, i'm sure he isn't trying to sabotage getting back into it in any way or shape. He wants to be out there, but he wants to be sure he can play continuous games in a row.
