In the past I agree, he should have been given somewhat of a chance. Especially over a guy like Picard.

Today, the only way he gets a chance is if another D gets injured tomorrow and nobody else is set to return yet. In the off-season, Gauthier went out and signed some D that were immediately above Henry on the depth chart (i.e. Emelin, Diaz, Campoli). I don't see myself preferring to give Henry a shot over signing any of those three, simply based on the fact that they are better than he is.

St-Denis got called up because he is better than Henry, at least this season he has been. If Henry was doing better, I'd have no problem with it. This year it is about who is where on the depth chart and St-Denis just so happens to be a step above Henry, hence he got called up first.
