Funny how the story changes. Now the team is overachieving. The third line is underachieving as a unit. Kobasew is underachieving goal wise. Friesen is underachieving. Yelle hasn't been able to put up much due to injury but his return should help. Regehr has not performed as well as he has in the past.
You may think Huselius is overachieving, but I happen to think he is finally realizing his potential. He too got off to a slow start or his numbers would really be scary. We all know he was one of the top rookies his first year and in Sweden, he proved he could easily outperform Horcoff as well as others.
If you want to talk about overachieving, maybe you should take a look at the Pronger supplemented Oilers of last year. Maybe you should look at Sykora who came out of the gate like the hottest thing since sliced bread even though it has been years since he played at that level. Or Smyth who had what, 14 goals in his first 19 games? Do you expect him to score 60 or more?
