Yeah, I've thought a few times over the last few years that as much as Babs must like watch Pavel and Z put up some highlight plays, he would really like the defensive/physical presence that the B's bring to the ice. I'm certainly enjoying watching Boston take it to Pittsburgh so far.
No offense to Helm, but it'd be quite the jump to catch up to Marchand's level. I'd like to see him get there, but outside of Helm's speed advantage (and Marchand has wheels, just not like Helm), I'd take Marchand every time over Helm for his complete game.
