LW Jonathan Huberdeau

When the Flames acquired Jonathan Huberdeau, expectations and excitement were incredibly high, but in 156 games since arriving he has tallied just 105 points, with his goal differential going from +2 down to -28 this season. Unfortunately, given the contract that Brad Treliving signed him to, it's very unlikely that the team will be able to move off this contract, and therefore, he will be somewhere in the lineup when the new arena opens.

At times we've seen him excel in a Flames uniform alongside Yegor Sharangovich, but the constant line changes this season certainly haven't been to his benefit, but if the team can put him in a position to succeed with two constant linemates, there's a chance he can one day be a positive asset. Whether that comes true or not, Calgary will be stuck with Huberdeau until the end of the 2030-31 season, so they should still be looking their hardest to find players that help him excel.
