That's right folks...Darren Helm - nightmare, namesake...elite player. You want to question Mike Babcock?
Granted, that video is almost three years old. But Helm continues to develop as an NHL player and is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with every time he steps out onto the ice. Already, he has a goal and an assist in the three games that Detroit has played thus far in the post season. You will want #43 on the ice in a game like tonight. The grinders always play a big role when your opponents back is against the wall.
Here's the lineup via Khan(!):
Let's do this.
Perhaps i'm a little biased to the namesake as my wife refers to him as my "man-crush" but crap that video almost makes me tear up. He is so impressive and hard working, I enjoy watching him every second he is on the ice as much as I do Dats.
I love Abdelkader and he is fantastic, but he seems to get more attention than Helm which I can't quite figure out. I would put Helm between Cleary and Bertuzzi personally. However I havent won every thing in hockey like Babs, so i'll defer to his judgement.
