“I think he’ll play in Game 2 for sure,” – Coach haircut
That’s right. Helm is NOT going to miss this round. A game 2 return is quite possibly the best news the Wings could hear today, aside from a perfect genetic clone of Pasha. Considering one of the supposed edges the Nashville Expansions have on the Wings is speed, we really need Helm. Not just for his speed(which frankly, I do have a need for) but for his grit, and PK role. He will out work you at the boards, skate the puck into your zone quicker than you can say “Babcock” and keep the puck from you, draining time from the PP. Seeing as how statistically, the team from down south has a great PP, Helms role cannot be more vital. The playoffs seem to be Darren’s time to shine(just ask Cindy the boy wonder) and this year I expect him to step up. He’s got the experience, and I get the general impression beneath his calm exterior Helm is hungry.
