not a major threat sure,but a somewhat respectable one

Helm put up 32 points two years ago and 26 points in 68 games(31 point pace over 82 games) last year playing with garbage,it's not unreasonable to think he could put up a pace around 35-40 over 82 games playing with Samuelsson

especially if the Wings got rid of Cleary and put one of Tatar or Nyquist in his place too(or Bertuzzi in Cleary's place with one of those two in the top six instead) we all know that will never happen though

and it goes beyond just drastically improving the 3rd line too,Abdelkader really doesn't belong at Center at all and moving him to the Wing should drastically improve his play
