People who watched the playoffs, how was Huberdeau's performance compared to Hall's? Better? Worse? Same?
And any real weaknesses in his game that stood out? (maybe defensive zone cycling, or too much offense created on the rush or defensive coverage or maybe looked to pass too much)
Huberdeau was fantastic but he never put on the jaw dropping show Hall put on. Huberdeau doesn't have that speed and he doesn't drive to the net like that.
Huberdeau's a great short passer, good with the give and go. Great instincts, knows when to jump into the lanes to score and when to set up players in the slot. I see hes caught out of position and sometimes picks up the wrong man on his assignments and doesn't win all the battles you would like to see him win. I don't think any of his skills are truly elite but everything that has to do with offense he is very good at.
