If Hudler keeps lighting it up in the AHL will he be pulled up during the season?
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

I really think it depends on injuries, and/or the play of guys like Cleary and Mowers.

Only if the wheels fall off the offense in our top 6. Or as Heaton mentioned in the case of injuries. He is not going to get called up to fill a 3rd/4th line spot. That would go to a guy like Ellis.

Not too sure if you can afford to leave him down or afford to bring him up -- maybe he could spark a third line. Seriously pucks are bouncing off Samuelson into the net -- he won't keep it up which may give Hudler a shot. I am still skeptical of Hudlers ability to handle NHL hockey with his small stature, nice start for him though.

nice start for him though.

12 goals ... 8 games ... helluva nice start ... i'd like to see him and filp really develop down there this year and be able to handle the big hits, and give them both their shot next year ...

being not too far from Milwaukee I am going to go see the grifs every time they play the admirals ... which is four games ... kinda stoked and hope the griffs keep up the good play ...

i really dont understand why everyone keeps saying that hudler is too small for the nhl. with the game opening up a bit this season, i think his size wont be a big issue.

also, brian gionta is smaller than hudler (gionta is listed as 5'7" but i used to see him on the campus of boston college and he looked shorter than that) and gionta has done well in his career. gionta has 10 points so far this season, a lot more than some larger players have.

of course there will be some adjustment once hudler gets to the nhl but i dont think he'll be a bust.

All the guys smaller than Hudler in the big show are also considerably faster than him. I think he'll make it but he'll have to be a lot more slippery since he can't skate by and around all of the big boys. He'll have to be smarter than the rest.

Leading the AHL in scoring, but this team has too much depth for him to play an important role.

Nill and the Wings are looking for a way to bring him up if they find a good opportunity. But the way our forwards are playing there is no one they can sit down in order to bring Jiri up. My guess is next scoring line player that doesn't get a point in three games gets scratched. tongue.gif

They won't bring him up unless he gets decent icetime otherwise it will just stunt his development. They'll leave him in GR playing a lot to hone his skills.

Should trade this guy. He is useless unless he has the puck. He cant skate. He's lazy and he only plays when he feels like it. He goes off the ice when the other team turns it over and breaks out...I could see him scoring 40 points for the Wings and then turning around wanting 4 mil a year. He probably has some good trade value right now due to the numbers he is putting up. I say trade the Battle Troll, and get us some picks...
