This team is not a playoff team without Helm.

Seriosuly this made me re-consider staying up until 4am to finish the game...

There's no energy in the wings without Helm... might go to bed now and watch in the morning instead

And the bottom 6 is back to being a ****storm. The little guy brings a lot of energy to the team, hope he doesn't miss much time.

Meh.
Helm is important to this team.
But I really didn't think his line was very good except for a couple shifts ... and even then it was because the line was with Tootoo.

I really question whether this team will win if Helm is a third line center and Abs or whoever is the 4th line center.

Meh.

Helm's energy doesn't just effect his line. It has a trickle down (and up) effect IMO.

I don't worship at the altar of Helm either TFC (still okay with CB?), but losing him is a bigger deal than you're making it.
We are kinda weak down the middle even with him as I don't think Abby or Emmerton are long term answers at 4C. Without him, we're playing both guys which mandates almost superhuman efforts by the wings on the 3rd and 4th lines to get much out of the bottom 6.
And our PK didn't exactly set the world on fire without him- I know he's only 1 guy but it definitely hurts us there also.

the thing about Helm is he doesn't bring a lot of offense but he's also too good at being an energy guy to only get 4th line minutes

therefore having Helm kind of pigeonholes a team into having their 3rd line be an energy line

I didn't see much of it Friday.
I know how important Helm is. But the problem is, if he's your third line center... you're going to have two lines centered by guys who can't pass the puck worth ****.

If Helm is a third liner, I'd prefer him at wing to center... with a pass-first center and a skilled shooter on the other side
