Having Upshall and Jokinen on the same line puts tremendous pressure on Huby to pass all the time. Having Sammy on RW frees up everybody a lot more.
Exactly. Hubs could learn a lot from Sammy with regards to patience with the puck at the NHL level. That could be a really solid line. I'd expect Jokinen to put up at least 25 goals.
