As for Henrique, here's the list of +50 point rookie centers since the lockout:

Sidney Crosby
Evgeni Malkin
Anze Kopitar
Nicklas Backstrom
Jonathan Toews
John Tavares
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
Paul Stastny
Logan Couture
Jeff Skinner
Adam Henrique
Peter Mueller
Matt Duchene


What a bunch of dime-a-dozen scrubs.
Drew Doughty had 27 points as a rookie. Gardiner 30. Doesn't menan anything. Just like it doesn't mean anything that Crosby had 100+ points as a rookie and Adam 50+. It's totally irrelevant.

Adam had 51 points which is very very good. He's a very good player. But those 50 points put him in the same balkpark as Grabovsky.

It's simply not good value to trade a young dman like Gardiner for a 50-60 point center.
