Insert the standard "small fast forward problem" here. I like Helm, but guys can't help if they are always in the training room. Due to his size and style of play, he might be a guy that misses 30% of the games every year. Misses or is playing hurt....
Stats show this isn't true: last 4 years played. 75 out of 82
82 out of 82
68 out of 82
1out of 5
add them up and you get 226 games played out of 251. so he's missed 10% of the games the last 3 years and 5 games.
For comparison: Datysuk 18%, Zetterberg 6%, Filppula 17%,Franzen 28%,Cleary 17%, Bertuzzi 7%
I think this year, he got caught out of shape and thinking there wouldn't be a season and hurt his back trying to hard to get back in the swing of things. It didn't have anything to do with him being an undersize grinder.
