it's not overblown at all. In real life he was a good goal scorer who was heavily biased towards PP scoring. In the ATD, he is a PP specialist.

Henry was top-7 in goals six times - 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 6th, 7th.

But as far as even strength scoring in those years? 4th, 5th, 9th, 18th, 42nd, 60th.

His excellence on the PP should not be understated, nor should his mediocrity at even strength be understated.

Henry scored 303 ESP in 727 games (0.42). Over the same period, Eric Nesterenko, who no one would dream of having on a scoring line, scored 367 in 965 (0.38).

His 224 PPP, on the other hand, are excellent.

We are smart enough and have the capability to analyze players' scoring in different situations. Why would be not do that?
