Helm Finally Looking Like His Old Self!

13 April 2014 - 11:44 PM

After watching Helm against the Blues, doesn't it finally seem like he has shaken a lot or all of the rust off from his injury string and is skating and moving like he did before all the health issues? He had shown me some glimpses and stretches of his old skills at times up till now, but it finally looks to me that he is hitting that high gear for most each and every shift, without any of the tentativeness that he sometimes had when he just returned. It is a heck of a good time for him to round back into tip-top game shape, with the Bruins' "weakness" in defending against pure speed!

Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

09 March 2014 - 12:55 PM

Hi guys,


As much we have been down on Brendan and his costly bonehead passes to the opposition and such, with his recent 2 goals and his looking far more confident in joining the rush, isn't this the Brendan Smith that we envisioned before he was ever called up from Grand rapids? He seems to be smelling offensive blood now (last few games) when he joins a rush, and commits to the play in going right to the net, knowing that the winger (hopefully) will have his back covered defensively. Maybe Babs or the assistants sat down with him to give him the okay to freelance a bit more than he had, but to me, this Brendan Smith version 2.0 is what I had thought he could potentially be when he was still seen as one of our top prospects - an offensively gifted and aggressive D man with snarl, speed, and some size - one that we have rarely seen. Do you guys think he is finally showing signs of coming out of his shell, or has he just had a couple of lucky games?
