Yeah, I'm not optimistic about that helmet rule. Guy gets hit in the far corner away from his own bench on the penalty kill, he has to try to pick up his helmet and put it back on and - oops, the opposing team scored.
Or a ref isn't paying attention, the same thing happens in the corner and the player starts skating towards the bench but since the ref didn't know where the helmet came off, he calls a penalty.

I think it's ridiculous to punish a player who gets hit hard enough that his helmet comes off if he doesn't put it back on correctly (seriously, who's going to do that?) or go to the bench immediately.
