Of course all this depends on his back, Helm's career is actually in jeopardy at this point in time. They can't even diagnose what is wrong, just hoping the summer of rest completely heals it, could see him still being out until December.
A 21-year-old reclamation project? It is funny from anyone, but from a Wings fan it is particularly so. DET tends to not even play players in the NHL until they hit 22-23.
