Henrique also played with a lot better linemates (Kovy, Parise) than Kane (Wellwood, Burmi, etc). Once he has quality linemates his numbers should soar.
Henrique played on a pretty putrid second PP unit. Barely had any PP points, most of his points were even strength against the toughest competition and a good portion came shorthanded, 7 points I believe. He is probably the only center that ever made Kovalchuk and Parise look good on the same line too.

I am going to assume Kane had a hefty amount of first unit PP time and PP points, and played against lesser competition as well. Nevertheless, like I said, value just isn't there for other teams.
