Uhhhhh, what?

Henrique got beat by Zibanejad by 4 friggen points in a lockout season where the Devils had several key injuries and underperformed. Are we really going to compare Henrique as a 20 year old (OHL) to Zibanejad as a 20 year old (NHL?) That makes no sense. Why not compare Henrique's rookie season to Zibanejad's? One put up 51 points in 74 points and was a Calder finalist. One put up 20 points in 42 games. The fact that people are laughing at Henrique and not at Zibanejad just proves the HF stereotype that potential and draft status is all some of you look at.

Henrique has had a better carer than Zibanejad to this point. Does Zibanejad have more upside? Absolutely. But to think that Zibanejad and Tarasenko are untouchable phenoms who are miles above Henrique is simply ignorant on all levels.
