Henrique is a decent buy low ATM too because he was dropped from the top line in the Devils' last game.
I looked at Henrique but I don't like his fit on my team. It's such a fluky stat it wouldn't surprise me to see him get no more than 1 point the rest of the way. Same could be said about anyone but Henrique's production elsewhere is lacking.

This is a very tough stat to predict.
I completely agree, 1st overall pick in my league this year went to Grabner, that hasn't worked out. I drafted Benn assuming he was good for at least 5 of em, so far 1 (thankfully that's not all Benn is good for).
I try to use the Frozen Pool player charts to track how often guys are playing Shorthanded, it is however somewhat time consuming.
My thinking is that if Backes plays shorthanded and Fleischmann/Moulson don't, maybe I should trade one of em for him and hope for some luck.
