Weird. And I always thought you need to be more defensively responsible when playing in the 3rd line.
Say all you want about him not being the reason we were handcuffed etc.
The guy is still the most one dimensional player I think I've ever seen. 57 points doesn't mean that much when you can't play on a 2nd line because youre not responsible enough defensively
By the way. I think it's good that we don't put too much money getting more two-way guys as we already have a bunch of them. Why do we need Hudler to be on the PK? We could get some guy with Hudler's offensive abilities plus great defensive talent but it would also mean much bigger cap hit. We have Zetterberg, Filppula, Datsyuk etc. great two-way players. Zetterberg and Datsyuk both had only 70 points this season. I think we need some pure offense rather than more two-way players.
