Updated 2x at 2:31 PM: The Red Wings were tardy in terms of filing onto the ice for today's practice...
Datsyuk not on ice for practice. Don't know what that means for his status Thursday against Colorado. #RedWings
Helm also not on ice. He left game after second period with upper body injury. Alfredsson missing. At dental appt. Cleary still not skating.
And MLive's Ansar Khan...
Wings filing onto the ice for practice. Datsyuk and Helm are not skating.
The Detroit News's Ted Kulfan also confirmed:
No Datsyuk or Helm on the ice for practice
Pleiness tossed in an, "Oh yeah, by the way" that isn't surprising:
Forgot about Weiss also missing from practice.
Pardon the roll call, but it appears that the Free Press's Carlos Monarrez is covering practice, with Helene St. James likely covering the 3:30 PM Lidstrom presser:

The Red Wings did make one personnel move Wednesday, however. They recalled center Cory Emmerton from Grand Rapids, after the injury to Darren Helm (upper body) on Tuesday night. The extent of Helm’s injury isn’t yet known.
This is real news, from DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose...
Just spoke to Henrik Zetterberg, who visited #RedWings teammates this morning here at JLA. Still feeling some residual pain from surgery.
Yes, this is cool:
Babcock said to get in consistent Cup-winning position, you have to build. Once you "get to a point," then you make moves. "We're not there"
And now the Detroit News's John Niyo:
Babcock on Wings' view at trade deadline. "When you get to a certain point, then you move assets. We're not at that point."
Update #1: Yes Ken Holland was on TSN and said that the Wings have to figure out whether Datsyuk/Helm/Weiss's injuries will affect the team's decision-making regarding making a forward rental, and he also said this:
