Not what we were wanting to hear, unfortunately. From George Malik (link), in regards to Helm's likelihood of playing:

 

He's not even practicing, so highly unlikely, I'd say.
Doubtful. When he was injured they said he was done for the playoffs. Don't think anything has changed.

I wasn't expecting Helm to come back till next season anyway. Back injuries are no joke, take your time Helm, see you next year.

Anyone have a dekeyser update? I don't even know if it was his top or bottom hand, which makes a big difference in recovery time

As much as I hate to see Helm out, his absence has given Andersson a chance to show he's a capable center at the NHL level. I appreciate the effort Emmerton puts forth, but I think Dats/Flip/Andersson/Helm gives us much better depth at center. One positive to take out of it.

At this point, let Helm get fully healthy so he is ready for the start of next season. I would hate for him to play and really seriously hurt himself more.

I'd much rather keep him out and let him come back rested and ready to go next year.

 

As much as it would please me to see him in the lineup I don't want to see his first game since febuary be a playoff game, pretty much getting thrown right back into the fire.

They said he's most likely out for the complete playoffs, even if we had made it to the finals. It's a 6-8 week recovery and the finals would fall right on the 6 week mark. Last i've heard they said he would be ready in July

I'm afraid he's turning into a vegetable.  

 

Can't remember the last time he even played.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I think people need to get used to this with helm. Back injuries are unpredictable. Could never go away.

Back in the early 90's I was living in Phoenix and my wife was a big Suns basketball fan and of course so was/is most of the city.  Those were the days of Charles Barkley and after his big first season in 93 where the Suns went to the finals he started to develop back problems.  He never recovered from those issues and his career started to decline from there on out.  There were stories of him laying in the aisle on the team plane on trips because it hurt too much to sit in a proper seat.

 

Would suck to see Helm in the same situation.

I think you need to stop making assumptions.

Well, vegetables DO get sliced often by sharp objects.

 

But the similarities end there.

What a grim update. Makes it seem like he's lying in a dark room somewhere grimacing over his back pain all day.  :confused:

He's actually right...I myself have had 2 lumbar discs herniate back in 2003, and I still have lingering effects...Even with surgery (which I did not need - just cortisone injections)  you may never be 100%.

Not good news. Hopefully he can be back to 100% come next year. Back issues are unpredictable, though. His presence has really been missed.

Coach Mike Babcock said center Darren Helm, who has played only one game this season due to a back injury, will not be ready to play in this round. Helm has not been skating with the club.

 

On another injury note, Miller might be ready to play tomorrow.
