The Calgary Flames have made significant changes in the recent year. However, their star players are still taking shots in the media regarding their performance.

Huberdeau's Struggles

With the departure of hard-nosed coach Daryl Sutter, many expect Jonathan Huberdeau to re-establish the game he displayed during his tenure in Florida.

Last season in Calgary, Huberdeau put up a disappointing 15 goals and 40 assists in 80 games, compared to his 115-point campaign with Florida in 2021-22.

Top 3 Worst Contracts in NHL

After this disappointing season with the Flames, Huberdeau still can't get a bounce. The Athletic recently released their ratings of the worst contracts in the NHL. Huberdeau's ranked number 3.
his 8-year, $84 million contract is reportedly only worse than Seth Jones and Colton Parayko.
«From that vantage point, it's easy to see why Huberdeau's new deal lands as the third worst in hockey. He scored just 55 points in 79 games last year — less than half of what he had the year before — and he's now entering his 30s where the decline is much more swift and sudden. At his price tag, the expectation for the next eight years is a Net Rating of plus-11 and while Huberdeau isn't projected to be far off that next season, Father Time will make that mountain a much steeper climb.»

The report states that Huberdeau's previous season places him at roughly an 8 million dollar contract valuation. His current contract is $10.5 million.
It certainly is not over for Huberdeau, and this season will be a valid marker for whether or not the contract was a bust. With a new coach at the helm and a chip on his shoulder, Huberdeau could be reinvigorated for next season.
