I think you are severely underrating how good Helm is...If you look at stats I could see how you come up with the opinion you apparently are, but he is more than that. Look at how much Yannik Hansen is worth to the Canucks. Helm is that and more for the Wings. Would you want to trade a 2nd line center, coming off a 66 point season, granted, also an impending UFA, and Hansen, for a top pairing D who is also an upcoming UFA and that you have a decent chance at signing in the offseason anyways? I think if you're honest with yourself the answer is no.
