Twitter agrees, Jonathan Huberdeau is a push at three.

According to the Twitterverse, Saint John Sea Dogs standout wont go over or under, but exactly on three to the Florida Panthers.

Second only to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in Future Considerations’ final ranking for the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Huberdeau put together an exceptional year that saw him outside of the first round in September. Forty-three goals and 105 regular season points later, Huberdeau skyrocketed into the top-five.

A QMJHL championship with playoff MVP honours coupled with a Memorial Cup championship and a Stafford Smythe Memorial Trophy award later, the St. Jerome, QC. native is challenging for the first overall selection in Minnesota.

As successful a season as any draft eligible prospect, Twitter agrees Huberdeau goes with Florida’s third overall pick.

“Florida takes him over Couturier at 3,” tweeted @joshlewis306.

@drescher33 agreed.

“Landeskog and RNH are off the board,” he tweeted. “I would take him over Couturier.”

Will that be the case? Twitter has had its say.

Now it’s Florida’s turn.
