How would I feel about someone on the internet saying that to my wife? I wouldn't care. It's the internet. She wouldn't care either. She's thick skinned and doesn't get her feelings hurt by e-insults. If I wanted some dainty little flower in my life I would have married Jiri Hudler.
I don't like Hudler. He's a soft mini-Euro who hides behind a visor and is incapable of hitting. He is also the very opposite of funny when he cracks wise.
That said, I hope he stays around. He scores at a nice clip, I'm happy with him on the 3rd line - especially if he'll take less money to stay here and we're able to find some muscle to play next to him. This is a test of Lidstrom's leadership. It is in the team's best interest for Hudler to stay here and take less money. That's part of what leaders do, right? Inspire those around them to want to stay, because they have something special? Huds has been in Detroit long enough to know how special the organisation is and to have seen the way other teams run their ships. If he wants to go after big money, good ridance. If he wants to stay, take less money to continue playing the parts of the game he plays well despite his size, great.
