Agree that the Pocket Rocket is an interesting player ... in an all-time context, I love him as a #1 center, but it's ironic that he was never a #1 center in real life.

How the rest of the team is built around him will impact how good Henri is in this draft. On a certain type of line / team, he is in that tier with Clarke and Trottier. On a different team, he's very ordinary.
