    What's up with Jonathan Huberdeau? How's he playing. I have him in my yahoo pool and don't want to drop him just yet but I expected more

    I havn't seen any Panthers games but is he struggling? Is he playing good? Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks Guys.

    It's starting to look like a sophomore slump. The whole team is playing bad though.

    I honestly think Versteeg is tired of Flash piling up the points so Flash suddenly came down with a case of "Turbo Lax syndrome".

    Huby needs to be shooting on the PP more, he's been passing too much.

    He had a few tremendous shifts today where he made Tampa's defense look like cones. The points will come soon. He does need to shoot more.

    He was all over the ice tonight. Puck just isn't going in.

    The bigger question is what's up with Marky. He allows at least 3 GA every night.

    I hope this is just a sophomore slump and nothing permanent. He seems to be pretty ineffective lately...not sure what's up with him, but he definitely hasn't been as good as last year (he was injured last year and was playing better than he is now).

    Teams are scouting him. Either they are grinding him into the boards or are forcing him high. It's no coincidence his last two goals came from the Bjuggernaut plowing through the D and making space for Hubey.

    I wonder if he is playing hurt again as well? It just doesn't look like he has the same speed as at the beginning of the year (he is not that fast to begin with) and every time he gets bumped off easily off the puck, almost as if he is just not wanting to push off on that hip? Only he knows for sure but he looks off right now

    If I were coach I would bag skate him if he doesnt get at least 3 SOG per game. He has far too many opportunities to shoot and score but instead insists on passing.

    I think missing most of the offseason hurt. We have known for a few years that he has needed to bulk up and we know he needs to be a little faster. After last year we were left with great expectations but he didn't have much time to work in the offseason because of his surgery. He didn't have time to gain weight and couldn't work on really anything. He is only 20. I think in a full offseason as long as the work ethic is there he will be fine.

    Sounds like he did gain some weight, maybe mostly muscle due to the word solid.

    I know he gained some but I'm saying it isn't sufficient. He needs to gain (more) weight. Give him a full offseason and see what happens. I don't think he improved much in the offseason if at all and I attribute that to his hip.

    He had good chemistry with Shore, Mueller and Flash, but obviously those 2 guys are not here and Flash is not producing himself.

    Fleischmann either has to start playing better or he has to go. I think someone like Bergy, Upshall or even Kopecky would compliment Huby and Bjugstad better.

    Mueller and Huberdeau worked well. Just sayin'.. But, ya he and Barkov, along with the whole team should shoot more like a lot of you are saying.
