if Karlsson can slice his ankles off practically and come back in no time, Helm lighting weights injury can be back.. not giving up hope!

Yah, don't risk Helm's long term health.  Any chance we can give DeKeyser a bionic thumb and put him back in?

I just hope helm doesn't come back and get another freak injury like the skate cut. I say just relax and target next season.


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

I wish so bad he would come back now.  Maybe that's why our 4th line is just rotating wingers.  Whoever plays the best flanks Helm when he's ready to tear up the ice again.

Helm is a tease. I hate even hearing about him, cuz I know we'd be sick with him right now.

Even if, and that's a huge if, Helmer was able to play again this season, I don't see him getting back in the line-up during these playoffs. He hasn't played at all this season, and has already said that he has lost some of his speed. Nothing has gotten better from that point. It's better to just write Helmer off until next season with a full summer of rehab, training camp, and pre-season to get him back to where he needs to be. I really hope the placebo effect hasn't hindered him enough mentally. It would suck to see Helmer never go 100% again.

Hadn't even occured to me that Helm (or DeKeyeser) could get back these Playoffs.  Even if Helm could get ready, who would have much confidence he could stay healthy?  Needs to sit it out and hope for better in October.  Sad too - I think his injury was the single biggest absence from the lineup causing those early problems.  Fortunately, Emmerton emerged as a steady pro, and replaced a little bit of the speed and energy Helm offered.

Note that the absence of a diagnosis necessarily entails the absence of a prognosis. In other words, don't assume that this means he'll be gone forever.

This makes me sad. Especially when he's saying that when they guys are getting cheap-shotted that's when he wants to be out there the most. Just reminds me how much heart that kid has.
I really miss Helm

No diagnosis, no prognosis, Helm keeps aggravating it...I dunno, maybe I'm weird, but none of this really engenders a whole lot of hope or optimism in me. Not that I think he won't find his way back into the lineup in due time (as in, some time next season). But, I can tell you from experience: back problems can really, really, really, really, really, really suck - especially for a guy as young, active, physical, etc. as Helm is. Definitely feel for the guy. Can't rush it, though.

 

On a more positive note...

 

Has this been a blessing in disguise? I mean, you hate to call something like this a "blessing." But, with Andersson's surprising emergence, and with Nyquist and Brunner - both legitimate top-six scorers - tearing it up...suddenly, we get Helm back, and we've got a wicked bottom six.


Don't Toews me, bro!

Helm is always missed and his speed prevents other teams from pinching. He is missed especially on the special teams.

On the flip side, dude could have had his disc replaced by now. Several things I don't understand here.

1. How in the world does it take four days to get an initial MRI and then several more weeks before a second opinion? I'm shocked that athletes can't get in ahead of us regular sloths or see a specialist? Maybe Helm should switch to a PPO vice ***.
2. How does it take several months before a second doctor figures out he has a tear in his disc? Do these guys not get more than 3 minutes with the doctors? As a college athlete, we had physicians standing by for this sort of thing. They received large stipends for it too.
3. From that point, why did it take several more weeks before they knew how to treat it properly?

I understand mystery illnesses but this is crazy.

Sounds to me that we need a new medical staff and schedulers. Fire everybody! Kidding, but only a little.
