We could use some Helm


Khan says that Darren Helm -- still banged up from being too fucking extreme in training camp -- probably won't be ready for the Joe Louis opener on Thursday.


Judging by his comments, it doesn't appear as if Helm will be ready by Thursday. He's still avoiding contact, for the most part, in drills.

“Shooting, handling the puck, sometimes I have to reach in an awkward position, getting bumped around still kind of hurts a little bit,'' Helm said. “I want to come back, be 100 percent and not worry about going into the corners or battling along the wall. Even in the drills right now I’m kind of thinking about it a little bit.''


Also, with Brett Lebda reviving his October Suckage tour for the second straight year, he will be benched in favor of the equally useless Derek Meech.


On defense, Derek Meech will replace Brett Lebda, who struggled the first two games, posting a minus-3 rating and getting benched during the third period of Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Blues.


Perhaps I'm being pessimistic here, but instead of Meech, I think the Wings should consider pairing Jonathan Ericsson with a banana peel.

And why, exactly, did they think letting Quincey go was the best thing?

Maybe the opposition would fall for it if we got a guy dressed like a crossing guard holding a STOP sign or painted a big hole on the ice where our sixth defenseman should be. Either of those things have a better chance of working at this point.

Pair Jonathan Ericsson with Justin Verlander! That would work. :)

All of these ideas sound better than Derek Meech -- mainly because a "Meech" sounds like some kind of unwanted testicular growth. What testicular growth is wanted, you might ask? A third testicle. That's right. Ask any dude.

I hate studying.

And if Lilja was healthy, we wouldn't even have to decide here.

And to think, two years ago, we hated Lilja more than either Lebda or Meech.

A third [chrome)] testicle [that hangs from my truck hitch].

I think Meech is a little less useless (say that three times fast) then Lebda. I certainly don't think it's possible for anyone to be worse.
P.S. If your third testicle begin growing Meech, would you still want it? Just curious.

That's an excellent question. I'd have to say that, if it somehow earned me a few thousand dollars, like as a freak show sort of deal, then yes I would allow the growth. Judge me if you have to, but remember that I'm broke and shameless.
