helm doesn't have hands either. both are not exactly comparable, but close in style. i'm not saying raedeke is the next helm which he isn't, but i think even a light version of helm could have a use in the NHL.
but of course the development has to continue. the 2nd half of the season was much better for raedeke. next season he has to go from there to 30-40 points while being a defensive forward. if he can achieve that, i think he could become a legit option in 2-3 seasons.
