    Henrique and Skinner

    If only points count, who would you rather have in a dynasty league, Skinner or Henrique? Opinions with reason please.

    Thanks!

    • In my own comparison, I have come up with this:

      While devils fans seem adamant that Henrique is not a passenger on the line playing with Parise and Kovalchuk, it's obvious he does benefit on the scoresheet. If Parise walks this summer, that line will be broken up and will Henrique continue producing? Or when Zajac returns, does he reclaim the #1 center spot? Josefson is also in the center mix for NJ. Is he going to step in and bump Henrique down the depth chart? I don't like to judge players long term based on their linemates. The bottom line is can Henrique produce if he plays with lower caliber wingers?

      While Skinner sometimes plays with Staal, it's not all the time and Skinner has shown he can produce while playing with lesser wings. Skinner is also younger and was a higher touted prospect with more pedigree. For these reasons, I lean towards Skinner.

      Anyone agree or disagree? Anything to add?

    • I have Henrique and he's really helped with the depth. I too just do points in the league I have him. I'd say Skinner, although I believe both of them will be 70+ pt players. Looks like Henrique will be going to the playoffs though. And when Parise and Kovy are on a streak Henrique gets a ton of points. But looks like Skinner has found his stride lately.
