Isn't Huberdeau a LW? If he is then he has a change for being the best LW of Canada in the future.
Canada's top left wingers right now: Sharp, Hartnell, and then a dropoff to Lucic, Marleau, Marchand, ...
It's likely that none of them will make the Olympic team, and the LW spots will just be filled by natural centres.
(In Vancouver we had centres E. Staal and M. Richards playing at LW).

RW is a little better, with Iginla and St. Louis aging our best right wingers would be Perry, Nash, Eberle, Neal.

It is somewhat weird that almost all of the elite Canadian forwards are centres.
