With Reirden here that gives them 3 veteran defensemen counting Wilson and Helmer.With no incentive for Helmer to return and if he feels that his shoulder is not responding to the surgery retirement is an option.
that better not be why they got reirden! i'm a huge helmer fan and i was looking forward to his return. i recently heard he was hoping to be back by the end of january. maybe he had a setback and with both him and wilson out, maybe springfield felt they needed another experienced dman.
