Darren Helm On Detroit’s Season

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

“Compared to all the other ones (seasons), it’s got to be the worst one I’ve been part of,” Helm said after he scored both goals Tuesday in a 3-2 loss in Buffalo. “It's hard for everybody. Old guy, young guy, it’s not easy to be in this situation.”

But with all those losses — Tuesday’s was the Wings’ 40th in 58 games (14-40-4) — Helm still sees a positive trait that will help the organization going forward.

“It’s a good thing that we’re still working pretty hard, we’re still coming out with some energy,” Helm said. “It doesn’t always go great for us, but we’re still competing hard.

"We know the situation we're in, but there's a lot of pride in putting on the jersey. Guys have respect for that jersey, the organization. Things aren't going great but guys are taking pride in wearing the winged wheel and we want to do the best we can."

Part of the reason is because Helm, one of the quiet leaders and veterans on this evolving roster, has shown the way with his performance on and off the ice.

When you asked a few months back who was our pick for MVP, I said Darren Helm. I still feel.that way. He has been the most consistent player night in and night out. I am glad he is on the team and hope he gets.traded to a.contender. the guy has show heart and some incredible hockey.sense and maturity.
