I don't really mind Hudler getting top 6 minutes, but why scratch Eaves? He's been the most consistent bottom 6 guy this season.



My thoughts as well. Hopefully this will get Hudler going. He hasn't been producing many points but his play (i.e. passing, being in a good scoring position) have been pretty good actually. Here's to Huddles finding the net and getting going.

I don't like the changes one bit. Hudler should be seeing the press box tbh. However against all teams to do this against at least it's against Edmonton. If we lose tonight against a lowly Edmonton team it's not gonna be good. This should be a no contest affair. Really want to see Hudler go bye bye...

That makes two of us....i've been saying all summer that he wasn't gonna get 60 or 70 points and I was called a dumbass..not looking too idiotic right now.

Yeah I remember you and I saying we should just trade him when he comes back and most people were calling us dumb asses and idiots haha.

Oh well Hudler is the same as he always has been, slow, small, weak but has good PP vision. Theres a reason he played 4th line in the 08 playoffs.

He better come to play tonight or kiss his ass goodbye

Eaves out, Hudler getting promoted for doing jack s***, and Bertuzzi+Modano on the 3rd line when Abdelkader had been perfect in that spot. Dont like these moves one bit.

Just remember its November and if you can get Hudler playing well he's going to put up more points then Miller, Abs or Eaves.

I like all those guys alot more at least right now than Hudler but he has a scoring ability that they do not. This is a short term sacrifice against a s***ty team with the hope that you can get happy moving in the right direction.

Nice lines. This is what i have been hoping for. Flip and Franzen will cycle and retain the puck and Hudler will snipe home some goals.

Haha yeah and everyone told us were gonna look like dumbasses that know nothing about hockey when Hudler puts up 70 haha.

I don't think he'll show up tonight.

There is a reason he scored the game winner in game 4 of the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals.

He has offensive flair, and has shown it in the past. No way is Holland going to trade him or get rid of him based on one (or even 13 games). Don't be delusional.

Yeah the reason was because he was given a gift to be alone infront of the net from Stuart. Miller and Eaves could both take a backhander like that too.

I know Hudler has more offensive flair, or at least did, but Kovalev has quite a bit as well but when your heart isnt in it then it means nothing really.

newfy you're a real pythia huh

Doesnt take a pythia to know Hudler is overrated, small, weak and overpaid ;)

What I don't like about this whole situation is that Eaves and Miller are the ones getting punished for working hard and doing there job out there on the ice. I really liked the fourth line of Helm, Eaves, and Miller.

I know that they want to get Hudler going, but I think that he should have to earn his ice time and not just have it handed to him. I am sure that he is trying, but if other players are playing better than him , then he should be the one to sit.

I don't like this at all. I may be alone in thinking this but I believe that the second line slowed down and lost some chemistry when Hudler was injected into that line for the second pp unit. Bert was one of our leading point guys at that time and they replaced him. Babcock is a good coach but WTF?

Oh please. It's not like Stuart thread a needle on that or that Hudler had all the time in the world to make the shot.

I know Hudler has more offensive flair, or at least did, but Kovalev has quite a bit as well but when your heart isnt in it then it means nothing really.


Your assertion that Hudler's heart isn't in it is based on what?


Doesnt take a pythia to know Hudler is overrated, small, weak and overpaid ;)


Yes, becasue the mass majority is overrating him, and 2.8 million is overpaid for a guy who can poentially score 60-70 points.

What a joke of a contract. Holland should have asked LGW first.

Doesn't matter what he "potentially" can do. Its what he actually does, which is little..3 points and a -6 in 11 games so far. You quit being dillusional. 2.8 million for what hes bringing right now is beyond overpaid.

Wonder how eva unit zero is going to defend hudler if he fails even with this opportunity...


I've been calling for this set of lines (swap Miller/Eaves) since Modano was signed. I won't need to defend him.
