That's exactly what we need.

The snobbiest fans of all have to be the internet marks who think they know everything, and Emmerton takes way too much grief around here. But he is better on paper than he is on the ice. Not by as much as we think but still. Connor is the opposite. He's better on the ice, infinitely better, than he is on paper. It's not about looking pretty or scaring opponents with resumes. It's about play on the ice. And Nashville should and will be more scared of the Helm/Connor combo than Emmerton/any other bottom six player combo.
Emmerton has been on the penalty kill lately. But when Helm comes back, he is out of the lineup. Abdelkader will be the 4th line center and Helm will eat Cory's PK time.
