Hudler is a freaking bum.

I'd take any enforcer over a guy that will make twice as much money and not make any impact on the team.


You would take Anders Eriksson at wing over Hudler.

Hudler is the definition of a tough as nails enforcer, just ask Mike Brown. Need I post the video?

Poor Happy. I didn't expect the dogpile so early in the season. :)

It's funny cause a week ago, everyone was blaming the third line's struggles on Mo, but Huds sits, and suddenly, the third line wins us 2 games in a row. Huds is the weak link.

I watched Hudler closely while he was developing here. He was always too small, too slow, too whatever. Babcock hated him. But he improved greatly over a 2 or 3 year span and I kind of liked him as the underdog. The guy worked hard back then, but sadly probably forgot that ethic after his KHL contract. I always pulled for the guy, but I have to say that a trade for another Abbie type forward now, while we still can, would be the best move.
Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

Hmmm... "Doesn't play like those guys."

Y'know, thinking back on the pre-season "2010-11 Scapegoat" thread, I really don't remember anyone picking Hudler. Whodathunkit?
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

For $2.875 mill I guess I was just hoping it wouldn't be him. And honestly I wouldn't have guessed that a year in the KHL would have stunted his game as much as it seemed to. I was hoping he would be the sniper the Wings have been needing.

The season is young, but man he needs to get it together. 8 games, 0 goals, 3 assists, and a -6.

Hudler and Helm on the same line? Last night, no thank you. Hudler right now is worthless. Early in the season, yes. Howevever I'm liking the idea of trading Hudler maybe at some point...
