ESPN Insider said that Hudler may be returning to the Wings next season. I thought that Hudler had a 2 year contract with the KHL so I don't know what to make of this. Anyone hear anything?

Pretty sure he's got an "opt out" clause in his contract.

If he comes back I hope we trade him (I'm sure he'd be good trade bait, esp if included in a larger deal). He is a good player and his cap hit isn't bad but I'd rather spend the money we have on a bonafide second liner scorer.

Starting to look more and more like Kenny is using the KHL as his personal player shelter. Way to go Kenny! smile.gif

He may or may not. No real news. Lidstrom may or may or not come back next year. No real news. The words I'm more concerned with are "will" and "won't"

he took stupid penalties at key moments, but at the same time, he could bury the puck too. with our PK unit looking really good right now, i'd definitely welcome his goal productivity and speed back.

I doubt you will find a better player at 2.75 million. Seriously the amount Hudler is underated here is ridiculous.

Any word on how he's been playing this year in the KHL?

I haven't been able to find any sort of stats or news on him

There is a reason he's only making 2.75. He's great on the PP but won't perform on the second line.

Anything for our PP would be a welcome addiction. Sub 3Mil cap hit a year with 50+ points and 20+ goals, sign me up!!

Have you SEEN our power play recently? "Great on the PP" should spark serious consideration in and of itself.

That said, I'd wait and see how the offseason pans out. Lidstrom's career is possibly up in the air, and we have a handful of one-year deals to sort through. If there's room for him, though, why not?

Because it would be at the expense of better players the wings could sign to the second line.


Namely Frolov.

I see the two sentences preceding the one you quoted flew clean over your head. I'll say it again; see how the offseason pans out, assess who's on the roster and who left, and reaquire Hudler if there's space. If Frolov is a free agent acquisition (which I find doubtful but for the sake of argument say it does happen), I doubt there's going to be the cap space for Hudler anyway.

If the management can somehow justify requiring damaged goods like Williams, why is Hudler so improbable?

It's sad how many pedestrian players are getting paid huge amounts of money that a guy like Hudler at 2.8 is a "good" deal. New NHL for ya, jesus. In anycase, got no time for Hudler. We could've used those PP goals and healthy season over here you jackass, I hope the hookers are doing you well.

Thumbs down to Frolov as well, what do he and Leino have in common? They've both been benched for lazy unmotivated play this year. What else do they have in common? Hopefully neither is on the Wings next year. I'd rather spend the money on a guy that can score goals but is a tireless worker as well, that's what we need. (And a healthier roster..)

Had we known last summer how many injuries we'd have this year, we almost could have signed Huds for what he was worth.

Since we couldn't, we didn't. Instead we stashed him in the minors without him having to clear waivers, for all intents and purposes. He'll be back when we have cap space for him.

I'm not saying it won't happen, just that I don't want it to. Hudler could decide to come back before any free agents are even obtainable (ie before July 1st). It's not a one way street for Hulder you know, if he decides to come back the wings have to honor his contract just as much as he does. So if hudler wants to come back, it's either not sign any good free agents or trade him. I'm hoping for the latter.
