He really hasn't had a chance at top 6 role. If he didn't get a point for a few games then he was sent down to the 3rd line/benched/AHL. Most of his games were played on the 3rd line.


He is a center, but played some wing on the Avs' 2nd line in the 2009 season and looked really good at times.


The Blues win this trade for sure, but the Avs really couldn't get much for Hensick. I think Hensick could be a top 6 player, hopefully the Avs haven't ruined him with how they've played him in the NHL.

(and yes, the things that they say about him being soft and not caring about defense are true. Though that doesn't have to be a huge problem if he's scoring)

Hensick is fun to watch. He's a good skater and makes very nice passes.
That IS a huge problem, even if he's scoring. The Blues' system (even under Payne's more open system) stresses good 2-way hockey. They insisted that Boyes learn to play defence. I think they'll insist Hensick does as well.
