before the season started I mentioned something about "we are going to struggle offensively, we would do well the first 30-40 games, then the size and toughness factor in the east would catch up to us". Z's back is something he will deal with for the rest of his career off and on. Glad he signed for 7 more years! Helm just doesn't have the size to hold up for the type of game he plays.

Sorry to be rude guys, but this stuff was predicted and we were warned. Flame away......

Because Helm was never hurt when we were in the Western Conference, right?

Every single season the Wings have injury problems like this. Excellent prediction...

Perhaps the "big bad east" is taking its tole on the boys. I gotta say the wings have been getting hammered lately since the sens beat us that way and other teams seem to be following this tactic.


I doubt it has anything to do with the East, teams like Anaheim, San Jose, Nashville, and Vancouver always played us a lot tougher than most of the teams in the East have this year. Other than the Datsyuk injury, we shouldn't be surprised that Z or Helm got hurt, it sucks but it's not a shocker.

The wings won 4 straight including Ottawa, they were not getting "hammered"

The Wings had the most man games lost to injury in the West last season, so I don't know how much substance is behind that theory.

Injuries have been a major issue for this team basically every year since 2008.

Red Wings who have been injured in one form or another this season:

 

Alfredsson

Bertuzzi

Datsyuk

DeKeyser

Eaves

Ericsson

Franzen

Gustavsson

Helm

Howard

Kronwall

Nyquist

Quincey

Smith

Tootoo

Weiss

Zetterberg

 

I'm not 100% sure about a few of those. But you get the point.

Ken Holland said Helm's MRI showed fluid, which he said means either sprain or strain in shoulder. Will be re-evaluated Monday.

I can live with a strain or sprain.  At least it's nothing permanent.

 

Has anyone wondered if the next two players to be injured once Z returns will hurt their knees and toes?

The injury report would read:

 

Pavel (head)

Helm and DeKeyser (shoulders)

Player X (knees and toes)

Player Y (knees and toes)...

Hope Darren's boo-boo doesn't cause him to lose those hands he found while he was gone for a season.

Pretty soon we'll only have three lines and Cleary will be on all of them.

The Red Wings struggled offensively last season too. Everyone has always been well aware that Z's back is a lingering issue and Helm's injuries have been more freakish than anything. 
 
I don't see where these predictions are exactly profound statements.

I can't believe there is such hockey geniuses that correctly predicted we would have injuries this year. Also correctly predicted we wouldn't score enough goals to win some games

TheScore is reporting he has to have an MRI on his shoulder. Can this season get any worse now ?

My 3 favorite players all injured at the same time...nope it can't really get worse though the boys are still doing not bad aside from the Flyers game.

You don't see it because they are not profound statements.  It seemed like at least 25-30 other people were saying the same thing repeatedly at the same time he claims to have said it.  Also, as you stated, Z has preexisting issues with his back and Helm's injury issues have been freakish.  Neither supports his 'I told you so' statement the way that he seems to think they do.

This is good news, also getting Pav back tomorrow from the sound of it. All things considered and the last game against Florida aside, this team did pretty well during these injury woes.
