Huselius so far

hey, habs fan here

just to know whats your overall thoughts about huselius so far. I took him in my pool in a late round and i thought he'd be a good fit in calgary.

the thing is, he doesnt produce but i liked what i saw from him against edmonton.

so to you, will huselius have a good season?

HE NEEDS TO BE ON THAT #1 PP UNIT!

He is our most creative player and his ability to slow down the PP is what we need. Yet Langkow gets on the 1st PP?

I think he's looked as good as he did last year so far, but nobody has really put up much in the way in point after the first 3 games.

He is getting more icetime under Playfair than he did with Sutter.

he's had his chances, just hasnt buried them, he could easily have a goal in each of the games so far. most noteably that wide open net he put off the far post in the first game against edmonton.

that seems to be the problem quite often for calgary so far. they have come so close on a number of occasions and just havent been able to finnish. at least were getting the chances though, so i guess it'll come around eventually

I think so. I figure Huselius could have a very good year once he gets a little confidence. He has been close to scoring, and he has sent people in on good chances several times.

He outperformed guys like Forsberg, Hossa & Näslund in the SEL during the lock-out. He´s got so much potential, but always fails to show it in the NHL.

Only Zetterberg was better during the lockout btw.

deserves to play with Iginla

imo, he deserves to play with Iginla and is better suited to that role than Tanguay...give them time.....

not a mistake at all, even if he didnt play half as good as he has. we only lost montador, who was a decent up and comer, but with the defensive depth we have/had last year, that was a no brainer for sutter to pull the trigger on.

i think he might be talking about in a fantasy pool

One more point, with 16 more games played... I'd say Huselius was easily the best player in the SEL during the lockout.

Rk.No..Name...................Team.Pos..GP..G...A. .Pts...PIM..+/-

I wouldn't really pay too much attention to his stats in the SEL compared to guys like Forsberg etc. For them, they're trying to stay in shape, make their money and just be ready for when the season starts, where as Huselius always has something to prove, to all those critics that say he's very inconsistent or that he needs a #1 centre to be effective.

Huselius has the skill to be a top 6 forward, but he desperately needs a true #1 playmaker as his centreman to be a threat out there.

What line was he on last year? (btw i've been a fan of Huselius since day 1 as a panther, so don't take this as flaming or trolling).

It seems like Huselius has slipped into the doghouse now, seeeing only 11-12 minutes a game, after being over 20 minutes several times earlier this year.

He hasn't really played with Tanguay yet. I think their two styles could be very complimentary. Stick them with someone who should be able to score (kobasew, langkow) and things could happen.
