Should The Florida Panthers Include Jonathan Huberdeau In A Trade To Columbus?

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

One of the worst-kept secrets in hockey has been the Florida Panthers’ burning desire to land both Sergei Bobrovsky and Artemi Panarin in a package deal.

A little fuel was added to that fire last week when Panarin fired his agent and hired Paul Theofanous, who represents Bobrovsky.

But the question has been: What could the Panthers offer to pull off this blockbuster?

Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau could potentially be a part of that puzzle, which is why he is the latest member to join the TSN Trade Bait board at No. 20.

GM Jarmo Kekalainen and the Blue Jackets are in search of a package that allows Columbus to remain in the playoff race while also adding future assets. The belief is that it would certainly take more than a package surrounding Derick Brassard and other expiring contracts.

Yes.

And Barkov, too.

And maybe Ekblad?

I think at this point it’s definitely safe to say both guys are leaving Colombus.  It’s just going to come down to if they are traded away before the deadline, or sign elsewhere in the summer.
