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....

 

Stop trying to be Superman.

 

1. My gut says this isn't a genuine setback, Holland just had him on an unrealistic time table, which has now been adjusted to reflect reality. (Am I the only one who felt Helm's "comeback" seemed to come almost out of nowhere? Like, after having been "We just don't know" for 90 years, suddenly it was "Roundabout 10 days.")

 

2. Back pain is hell.

 

3. Even if he has done something to aggravate his condition, I can't say I really blame him. I mean, look at how frustrated we get with this team. Now, imagine being Helm, the team's spark plug, arguably the heart and soul of this team, a guy who can make (and, alas, arguably is making) a huge difference - our *big trade deadline acquisition* (as stupid as that is).

So you think Holland made up a time table for Helm's return and not a doctor? Also, I thought back in January it was noted he'd be back in 6-8 weeks. Certainly isn't "out of nowhere."

Helm may not ever play hockey again at this rate.
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.

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

Speaking of speed, I got a speeding ticket that day. I was driving home from work as fast as I could to watch the game. I was getting text messages about the game and couldn't wait to get home. After I got the text Helm made it 2-0, I was pulled over and got the ticket. :innocent:

I think it's possible Holland was a little overly optimistic with the media.

 

Re: "out of nowhere" - it just felt like nothing was going, nothing was giving...then things seemed to come together very nicely. Which is, I guess, what you might expect. Just a gut feeling. Unfounded/misinformed? Possible.

The fact is, even if Helm and Bert come back, it would be at least in 2 weeks... And there will be like 7-8 games left? Not enough to get timing back, to get back in shape, especially considering they haven't even started to skate yet!

I am sorry to say this team will need a few trades to get going into the playoffs, but who will be sacrificed???
