Jonathan "Everyone hates me now that I'm in Florida" Huberdeau
Be more bitter dude. Everyone still recognizes him as a top prospect. Some people, myself included have watched him this year and have found that at times he gets a bit overrated. I don't think anyone hates him.
Scott Laughton. Right now they have him on the 3rd line between Matt Read and Wayne Simmonds. With Briere's injury he may only play the five games allowed. But watching Paul Holmgren tonight, when asked about the 18 year old he made it sound as if the kid was making it difficult on the staff to send him back to juniors with his recent play.
Eric Tangradi- He's going to get a shot with Malkin and Neal. How many LW would kill for a shot to play on a line with a 50 goal scorer and a 40 ?
If he settles down he will be ok. He just needs to play within himself, bang bodies, get pucks and stand in frnt of the net. If he sticks on that line one would have to think he gets alot of points playing with those two, earned or not.
Simon Despres- He's got a golden chance here. He didn't look great in camp ect but their giving him a shot. Theirs a chance he may even play with Letang.
Burtozzo is going to get a chance to play as well this season.
