@AnsarKhanMLive: Wings' Darren Helm didn't skate today due to a sore groin and is day-to-day, Ken Holland said.

I realize that sore groins are bound to happen after not skating all summer, but I can't help but :lol: at Darren Helm. Is this guy made out of fruit, really unlucky, or the subject of a hidden voodoo doll?

I realize such injuries tend to happen after a long summer off, but the troubling sign is that this always happens to Helm.  The fact that things like this happen so frequently to just one player makes one wonder about their durability. I love what Helm brings, but if he's going to be injured all year again it might be time to start doing a cost/benefit analysis on keeping him.

Is Mantha still out for six weeks, or will we get to see him this preseason?

It's the preseason. I wouldn't put much stock in anyone's performances.

It's not 2009 anymore. Why wouldn't you pay Subban 9 million? That's what superstars make. We can argue he has flaws but in the eyes of the league he is now top tier for what's available. Having only a handful of free agents every year because of long term contracts also drives up prices. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

Inflation happens. Kane and Toews set the new standard, and I'm sure their agents had them do it on purpose. No biggie. Everything goes up over time. People acting shocked and annoyed are being ridiculous. Did they think the cap would go up and everyone would just keep making their old salaries? The world doesn't work like that.
