I think Helm's speed buys him a little room as far as handsiness goes. Also, he had 40+ goals in the WHL while Raedeke's career high was 19. Helm doesn't have NHL hands, but Raedeke doesn't have Helm's wheels so his hands will need to be better than Helm's IMO.
Or if he doesn't develop any offensive touch as a pro, he could always go be a Blue Jacket.
