The backend is going to be a problem.

But it is very dangerous to evaluate this team on this short sample size without Helm. A lot of us like to go around calling him a core player and that is because they are a different team without him in the lineup. It really changes the roles and hurts the way we role lines.

When you can fill half your bench with injuries on opening night it is tough to get a true read on the team. You can evaluate what you see, but we haven't seen the intended team either.

At some point though beyond just bad luck we need to look at what is happening in the injury department. We are doing something wrong there. Much like I have trouble believing Minnesota is flat out unlucky all these years, the Wings need to start taking a serious look at their training staff and habits. Injuries happen, but this is an inexcusable amount and beyond what I can consider an accident all over.
