The one thing I regretted about picking Henry last draft was that it handicapped my fourth line a bit. My team couldn't have rolled four lines - the fourth line would have to be spotted here or there, or have Jagr double-shift in Henry's place.

I really think he helped my power play. IMO he was a big upgrade over, say, Modano or Zetterberg on the first unit.

BraveCanadian has a bit of a point about Henry's power play goal scoring in that there were fewer players in the O6 era, and most weren't picked for their power play abilities (players like Paul Gardner might not make the league at all), so Henry was competing against fewer players for power play goals. But he still outscored players like Richard, Howe, Beliveau, etc on the power play in his best seasons and that's very impressive.
