I wouldn't be suprised to see Helm stay a year in the AHL or centre a 4th line next year in Detroit. He can easily play LW as he has previously in the WHL.
Yes, I do see Helm going about Flip and possibly Franzen. Why? Speed. Helm is faster than Flip and Franzen. He can also control the puck at crazy high speeds. Franzen is a power forward. Helm is not.
