News: Jonathan Huberdeau was moved off the top line in practice on Monday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: Jonathan Huberdeau started the season playing on the left wing beside Aleksander Barkov, but has not produced any points since scoring a goal in the first game of the season. Florida has decided to mix up their lines and it has cost Huberdeau a spot on the top unit. He will start Tuesday's game against the Avalanche playing on the second line with Nick Bjugstad and Scottie Upshall. Huberdeau is still only 21 years old and has a boat load of talent, but the lack of talent up front surrounding him is definitely hurting his value.
