Jonathan Huberdeau hasn't lived up to his salary since he joined the Flames.

He doesn't look like the same 100+ point forward that came from Florida at all.
We can put a part of the blame during his first year to Darryl Sutter. But with him gone, and with Ryan Huska becoming head coach of the Flames, things should've changed and they haven't.

Huberdeau Gets Benched for the Third Period Against the Predators

Jonathan Huberdeau didn't take part in any shift during the third period of the game and he wasn't happy at all on the bench.
He did get 14:24 of ice-time, but never went on the ice in the third period.
Huska commented his decision:
Huska on the decision to bench Huberdeau in the third:
"I though he had an off night and when we went into the third period, we wanted to try to get a little bit more flow and we went with the guys we felt were going and that's pretty much all it came down to."

Another Bad Start for Huberdeau in Calgary

Huberdeau scored six points in 13 games since the season started. He's really struggling to fit in, but hasn't lost his passion.
The Flames organization has a lot of faith in Huberdeau. They've paid a big price to get him and sign him.
There are concerns that Huberdeau could struggle to live to his potential, but if he doesn't we can't see any team that would be willing to get him by trade, knowing his salary and his production.
Do you think Huberdeau will play with the Flames until his $10.5M AAV contract expires, in 2031?
