I know it holds no merit they just seem like they would fit in Detroit.
Holland has a hard on for Hemsky and has been rumored to be interested in him for the last few years.

Personally, if he can get him without giving up anything of importance, I wouldn't be opposed to the idea.

I think they both have really good third lines. (Detroit wins the 4th line IMO)

As for Helm vs. Sutter. Going by their stats last season, Helm wins, AINEC. Had six points less, sure, but in 14 less games, playing three minutes less per game. Was more physical than Sutter and better on the draw. Sutter was better at taking the puck away.

It's not like any GM would be crying himself to sleep that they got one and not the other, but I do believe Helm is better.
