He's back

Yep. Per Ansar Khan, Darren "the kill" Helm will make his season debut tonight. I'm going to be honest, this could not have come soon enough. While I have not been disappointed with the 4th line, I think he will add an additional element of speed, grit, physicality, and superb backchecking. Below are how the lines should shake out:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Leino-Filppula-Cleary
Holmstrom-Abdelkader-Williams
May-Helm-Eaves

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-StuartMeech-Ericsson
Lebda (scratched)

Osgood (starting)
Howard

Pretty excited to see Eaves on the same line as Helm. With their speed they should be a challenge to contain. The addition of Helm allows the Wings to roll 4 effective lines on a nightly basis.

However, it will be interesting to see if Helm is moved up to the third line after a few games worth of conditioning. Either way, despite the Franzen blow, and all the off season fuckery, you have to be very pleased with those lines.

Side note: I am sure Animal Drew will be pretty fricken excited about this development.
