Barring major injuries, how many points do you think Hudler is capable of next season? Babcock seems to think that Hudler has 70 point potential. I don't necessarily disagree, but find it hard to believe he will be able to put up those numbers THIS year, seeing as he most probably will be alternating between the 2nd-3rd lines, and Russia may have slowed down his game. I'm thinking anywhere from 55-65 points seems to be a realistic expectation, though I wouldn't be shocked if he put up some major numbers, and 30+ goals, or if he struggled to hit 50.

What say you LGW?

EDIT: Sorry Eva for not including the 120+ option :P

No less than 50 points.

I think 55-65 pts is definitely realistic, but I voted 60-70. Maybe Howard will be down with the clucking and Hudler will get an extra 15 or so from the chicken gods.

he will be a solid 20g-30a this season...that will be a pretty nice addition...if the rest of the squad doesn't get too injured.

Yeah, I have no doubt in my mind that the kid has the vision and the hands of a ppg player, but I just fear his game may have regressed in Russia, and he has never been the fastest skater. Should be interesting though, a tiny bit of me expects him to explode offensively.

if he plays in the top 6 and gets PP time all season then I think he can crack 70

I voted 50-60. I'm keeping my expectations low so I am not too disappointed.

I'm saying 50-60 for this reason. I think he'll be "slow" to start but will ramp it up, and next season will likely hit 60+, if not 70.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I'm thinking he'll break 60, but maybe not by much. Its so hard to know since noone can tell if he imrpoved or got worst while in Russia

It really depends on whether or not hes primarily playing with Filppula and Mule on the 2nd line or with Cleary/Bertuzzi/possibly Modano on the third.

If Flip can have his game be like that in the playoffs, I can see him setting up Hudler for 30-35 goals.
