I can't believe we're missing our Captain. :(

I'm just shocked he didn't get re-signed. Back to back Calder Cup championships as Captain and they let him go. I don't care about age - he was an awesome leader and he will be truly missed this season ...

Good luck, Helmer! And sad we won't be seeing you this season.

Fingers crossed, however, that maybe they sign him still after the season starts!!!

Yeah I keep checking the AHL page to see if someone signed him. I would love to see him back but he did lose a step last year and wasn't as good as the year before.

Losing the leadership is definitely a blow but with Kane and Nycholat there I think they will be okay.
