Shore hit a home run in his first chance, and while yes playing with Huby will make anyone look better, Shore is succeeding on his own merit as well.
i don't think shore's success is a simple function of playing with hubs and mules but you have to admin, it hasn't hurt. he's been a part of the dynamic but these are also two skilled guys and... well, we've never seen a young offensive talent like huberdeau. matthias, on the other hand, may have been given a shot at the top 6 but never quite an opportunity like this.
