I think Henrique is the type of center the Devils haven't had in over 15-20 years. Someone who can skate hard, play somewhat physical, not afraid to get dirty, and can both bury and Dish. dare I go back to Muller? his comparison would have Been Parise had Zach stayed at Center i think. But it is tough with less than 10 games. But i can say he has lived up to and exceeded my expectations. He was the player i was very interested to see.

I'm starting to think he will end up being more of a playmaker. He has shown more playmaking abilities this season. He seems to buy time with his stick handling and shiftiness and then make a pass to someone that is open.

Also, something I was thinking of. I don't think Henrique is better than Josefson yet, nor do I think Josefson is better than Henrique. I just think their styles of play are totally different. Josefson is light on his skates and thus is a smooth skater, while Henrique is more explosive with his skating. Henrique has a goal scorers instinct for finishing, while Josefson is more of a playmaker than a finisher. Josefson is quietly effective, pays attention to detail and does the little things that go unnoticed while fans are able to see more clearly what Henrique brings to the team. I hope Josefson and Zajac recover ahead of schedule, because what they bring will be a massive boost.
Very well said, I agree. We will need both Josefson and Henrique and the talent and skills they bring, in order to be successful going forward. Comparing between the two of them is a needless exercise, because they are both important prospects who are expected to grow into important roles.

Cue the meme: "This is not what I am and this is not alright" With a pic of Fraser and a traffic cone in the foreground.
