And yes there are obviously times when he gets stuck in his own zone (it happens to Datsyuk after all). I think it's fairly well known he's nothing special defensively. But IMO it was pretty obvious there aren't many other lines that keep opponents stuck in their zone the way the Wings' 3rd line did last year.
What you argue is something that is highly subjective. I cut through your subjectivity with actual data and you dismiss it but add absolutely nothing. There's one area where Helm is clearly better than Stoll: drawing penalties. This is a direct byproduct of his speed.

What else is there? That isn't subjective? MOD
