Detroit won't touch that. Helm's defensive play actually needs more work than most Detroit fans admit. But his speed, forechecking and PK work really are too far apart for a Burmi reclamation project. Also until some of the current Griffins transition he is just so far ahead of anybody else on the speed front. Of course all this depends on his back, Helm's career is actually in jeopardy at this point in time. They can't even diagnose what is wrong, just hoping the summer of rest completely heals it, could see him still being out until December.
