I don't see Flip + Helm getting the Wings almost any elite scoring forward, even if Detroit is taking a high caphit contract off of that teams' hands. Flip's a good 2 way player and could help any team, but he's not a game breaker and there's a decent chance that last season was his high water mark and he regresses towards his norm in the future. Helm's a 3rd/4th line grinder with blazing speed and can forecheck, but can do next to nothing with the chances he creates b/c he has the hands of a 13th forward. We'd have to add to them to get a top scoring winger to play with Datsyuk.
