Henrique is without a doubt our best defensive forward right now. He's a +10 this playoffs. I don't pay too much attention to plus minus on forwards, but that's impressive. Kovy, Parise, Elias, and Zajac are all in the minus. 4th line are +5, Poni is a +7, and Clarkson surprisingly a +8.
I always feel confident with Henrique on the ice on our own zone too.
I haven't been this impressed with a Devils rookie since Zajac. I think I am even more impressed with Henrique than Zajac, and Parise as rookies. If not for the playoffs alone. He doesn't have the faceoff skills Zajac has. He's pretty hit or miss there. Some nights he dominates in the circle other times you wish he wouldn't take so many draws, but he's way better than Patty there. Finally can say we got an ELITE player in a draft post lockout. Larsson should be elite, but he hasn't developed as fast. Josefson is impressive for speed, faceoffs, and defensive play.
