I can tell you as an Oiler fan that Henrik scares me a hell of a lot more than Kesler.
Henrik also looks "scarier" offensively than he really is with 78.6% offensive starts in 12 and 71.4% in 11.

He is down to "only" 68.1 this year due in part to injuries to Kesler.

One could just imagine how he would rank scoring wise if every top line in the league players at his % level of offensive zone starts.

As it is this will be the 3rd year his production dips, despite the protection of his minutes.
