Ottawa's offensive corps have been depleted over the last couple of years, something that would show in the form of Win/Loss totals.
They've started to fill out the back end, drafting defensemen like Erik Karlsson, who looks to be a keeper for sure, and Jared Cowen, who's still a few steps away but is expected to become a strong NHL blueliner.
That's all fine and dandy, but at the same time, their offense more closely resembles a train wreck.
If you think about it, outside of Jason Spezza, who hasn't been nearly as productive as in past years, and an aging Daniel Alfredsson, there aren't many guys on this team who can step in and create offense.
Enter Jonathan Huberdeau. The star of the 2011 Memorial Cup, Huberdeau knows how to score goals. Lots of them. He also happens to have a great set of wheels, another aspect of his game that will only help the Sens going forward.
I envision Huberdeau playing the wing on a line with Jason Spezza. That could prove to be an excellent combination, one that could help jumpstart Huberdeau's career and revive Spezza's.
