Having Helm would make the difference, I believe. At the very least it would make the third line better.

Colton Orr or GTFO!


We could use a guy like Colton Orr......never score a lot of goals but a real team guy who would hold other teams accountable when they constantly run our premier players or our goalie......he doesn't win every fight but he has broken a few noses around the league!!

Being a huge Helm fan I remember in 2008 when he was called up for the Cup run, he had a thing going with Brooks Orkpik......whenever Orkpik took a few liberties with young Helmer, McCarty was right there right away to make sure things went "smoothly". This is something this years team misses badly!

If I recall, there was a preseason game where Helm ran the PP and they looked amazing. Just sayin. :cool:

Against the Leafs in preseason ,Helm got 3 pts. on the PP & was first star!

I think Helm should be given the odd powerplay shot & see what he can create with a little more open ice.....not sayin he should be on the # one or two PP units....but the odd chance would be nice. I can think of a few times when due to botched line changes Helmer has ended up on the ice with Zett or Dats & the puck has gone in the other teams net. I remember this preseason when Helm anchored the "Grand Rapids Red Wings" against the pretty well full Toronto Maple Leafs & he got a goal & two assists on the PP & was first star. Late last season & early this season our PP has been kinda lack luster & I think a little fresh blood on it might help!
