That wouldn't surprise me. He's very skilled, but I'm not sure his offence will translate.

Why weren't they this good before? Was it because no one noticed? Was it because they truly grew as a player in that short of a time? Or is he just overachieving? I just don't like the idea of taking Huberdeau.

RNH, Larsson, Couturier, and Murphy are the only ones that have been in the top 10 from the beginning on. They set expectations and met them, while one or two may have overachieved just slightly. I'd be most comfortable with one of them.
Some kids are late bloomers. I think Huberdeau is legitimately this skilled, and not just overachieving.

I never seen him play but he is intriguing from all the stuff I have read.

I personally hope we wouldn't but who knows Lou and Conte know best.
We'd have to trade down pretty far to reach a point where we thought Zibanejad was the best player. Probably #9 or so. We'll pick a more talented player at #4.

It wouldn't surprise me to see him go before our pick, especially if he continues on this torrid pace into the Memorial Cup.

I'd be fine with that result.
