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.

Video- Jonathan Huberdeau Injury

Bob McKenzie tweets,

Full extent of Jonathan Huberdeau's skate laceration injury won't be known til he gets MRI tomorrow (Sunday). Obviously, concern for tendon damage.

A severed Achilles tendon can be a 6+ month recovery but partial tears can be much less, as in 4 to 8 wks or 8 to 12 wks. Wait-and-see time.

Among the East’s ‘Also-Rans’: Have the Panthers improved?

SI's Allan Muir looks at the Eastern Conference's "also-ran" (i.e. non-playoff) teams, determining whether their summertime moves have improved the respective 8 non-playoff finishers or whether the teams are just treading water, and he discusses a team not talked about very much in the Florida Panthers:

Florida Panthers (91 points, 10th)

You have to give them credit. The Panthers proved to be surprisingly competitive last season, far exceeding expectations for a roster that relied so heavily on youth and fading glory. They’ll go with a similar formula next fall, hoping that youngsters such as Aaron Ekblad and Jonathan Huberdeau continue to progress and veterans like Jaromir Jagr have more than fumes in the tank.

The team’s one major move of the summer saw it ship out one inconsistent forward in Jimmy Hayes for another in Reilly Smith. The former Bruin is the more established of the two with 33 goals and 91 points during the past two seasons, and he fills a need at right wing created by the buyout of Brad Boyes. As far as upgrades go, it’s not going to get Florida over the hump. Unless GM Dale Tallon has something else up his sleeve, it looks like the Panthers are hoping for significant internal growth. That should keep them in the hunt, but they’ll need to catch a few breaks to make the cut.

Video- Let’s Review Jonathan Huberdeau’s Shootout Goal

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,

Presently, there is no review process in place to determine a violation of Rule 69—goalie interference. For the past three seasons, I have been publicly advocating for the implementation of a referee's review to be conducted from a monitor in the penalty box for all potential goals scored where goalkeeper interference is suspected. This would require a rule change and it finally appears to be getting some solid traction and consideration from the general managers.

Even if the referees had the ability to utilize video review, Jonathan Huberdeau's shootout winning goal on Saturday night would be one of the most difficult plays to determine if the goal was in fact scored in a legal manner. I believe that the vast majority of the referees would allow Huberdeau's goal to stand. Let me explain why.
