I've might get flamed for this, but I've been expecting to see more from Huberdeau personally. I know he has 7 points in 4 games, but he just hasn't wowed me in a tournament where I expected him to breakout. I thought the 2nd line was the weakest of the 4 lines Canada iced today, and that comes after Huberdeau gets demoted to that line. and agree with you on Yakupov as well.
I've seen Huberdeau a few times now and he's never impressed me.

I want to believe in him, but can't seem to. I've noticed RNH and Scheifle, as well as Drouin and Jenner quite a bit. There are a number of others, that was just off the top of my head that I've liked better than Huberdeau.
