Bert and Cleary originally started with Adbelakder and Helm started with Miller and Eaves. When Bert missed a bunch of games with a sinus/inner ear infection (or a mild concussion/broken nose from Setoguchi tamahawking his face) then Babcock put Bert with Franzen and Pav and that line ran show until Pavel got surgery.
I think you misunderstand Helm's game. Right now, he's not a responsible defense-first player. He's an energy line guy, first and foremost.
