I guess it depends to what extent you mean he's overrated. Henry is undeniably a strong first unit PP goal scorer in this thing given his credentials, IMO.

BC, I read through your debate with overpass in last years draft thread and I would agree that he's not a better PP scorer than some of the elite scorers in this thing (even if the numbers are deceiving) but I don't think that discredits him as a very good PP specialist (i.e. he's a much better option on my first PP unit than the clearly superior player, Cecil Dillon).

Henry led the league in PP goals in 3 different seasons, one of which he set the record (later broken by Hull 10+ years later).

Here's some good stuff from overpass when he picked Henry last time:
