2. Saad is a better player. Huberdeau might be equal to Saad offensively(it is arguable), but Saad is clearly the better overall player IMO. He is far superior defensively and shows way more hustle/heart than Huberdeau does on the ice. Huberdeau floats much too often, turns the puck over with regularity, is soft in the corners and along the boards, and he doesn't play on the PK.

The Hawks IMO would keep Saad and have no regrets.
Lets see if anyone who isn't a Blackhawks fans agrees with you. I highly doubt it.
