Roster Crunch: Helm, Eaves, Tootoo on LTIR/IR

Looks like Helm is going to star the year on LTIR. Eaves and Tootoo will be put on the IR.

Quote:
Center Darren Helm appears likely to be on long-term IR. That would give the club $2.125 million in cap relief.
Quote:
Right wing Patrick Eaves (sprained MCL, ankle) is expected to miss two-to-four weeks and will start the season on IR.
Quote:
Right wing Jordin Tootoo is out at least another week with a bruised shoulder, and general manager Ken Holland said he's not likely to be ready for the start of the season.

Not unexpected. Toots is taking one for the team. So he can probably stay on the team. For a bit. There will be a farce of a competition to see who "earns" PT.

Could be a risky game we play if Helm ever becomes healthy

Funny how least important guys will injure themselves out. Eaves, Tootoo, Gustavsson.

Only Alfie and Helm is needed.

Until he recovers and the team has the cap space to call him up.

Helm has resumed skating after suffering a groin pull on Sept. 6 but hasn't been cleared for contact due to the back injury that has plagued him for nearly nine months.
I guess this got lost in the earlier reports, no medical clearance yet.

They can't activate him until they clear roster space and not exceed the roster limit; but they also cannot leave him on LTIR once he's cleared-- meaning they MUST clear cap and roster space. I think Leino was moved around the time Lilja was coming off LTIR for the same reasons. iirc

We have a lot of frail bodies on this team. I don't think we'll have any problems seeing Nyquist, Sheahan/Ferraro, and others this year.

I am sorry, but Helm is done. I only wish his injury happened before he signed that new four year deal. He was a difference maker on offense that didn't make a difference. Great speed which caused opposing teams to cough up the puck, but he could never cash in on those turnovers since he has the hands of Michael J. Fox.

Should have traded Helm, Smith + prospect and picks for Nash

Are you kidding?

This is the trainers doing Holland a favor with the roster debacle.

So if Helm, Eaves and Tootoo are going to LTIR at season start, we don't have to send Nyquist down.

Then, if Nyquist plays 2 NHL games, he loses his waiver eligibility and is never going back to Griffins.

Then we just have the 4 spots 6 winger problem. I'm starting to think Holland and company know Helm won't be back this year

I wouldn't call it as a problem. Or maybe a positive one, as long as the right guys are playing.

Depends who the right guys are, also it leaves us with wasted money as healthy scratches

When they (Eaves & Tootoo) become healthy, they will go through waivers, we will take the cap penalty and be still under the cap.

IF Helm becomes healthy, and Nyquist has locked himself up losing his waiver-status, Emmerton will be waived.

If we lose Emmerton on waivers to another team and Helm gets injured again, we promote Glendening or Sheahan. There's lots of options to handle this situation without any REAL problems.
