Remember, Huberdeau didn't make the team last year due to lack of size, but he was putting up points in the preseason.
It wouldn't be the first time a talented rookie did really well. Maybe Huberdeau is the man next year. + we'll add guys, just not the top guys. If Huberdeau plays well and we add some upgrades, it will be a better offense. I'm guessing that's what they're expecting at this point.
I'm thinking along the same lines. Tallon and co have to think the production of Huberdeau and possibly Howden could definitely bolster our offense and PP.
And with all the talk about possibly bringing back Olli or going hard after Semin, what about Ray Whitney? Sure he's 40 years old but he showed this year he can still produce. IMO he'd make a great bottom 6 guy and not cost much at all.
