I think Hudler is an NHL capable player. It's when we got guys making considerably less money than him, but producing more offensively that I get a problem. You pay guys a certain amount, under the expectation that they will be worth their paycheck. Hudler has been far below his pay grade for the entire season.

If he was a fourth liner who we picked up for half a million, I'd say "Give him time", and "Lets see".

I don't think Hudler is worthless. I think on many teams he would be a second line player, and I fully believe on the right team, under the right system, with the right line-mates, Hudler can be a 60-70 point guy. He isn't doing that in Detroit at all, however.

There is a point at which you need to stop looking at potential, and start looking at production. Hudler, IMO, is past the point of seeing him for potential. He needs to start putting up points fast, and playing in more key situations, otherwise I wouldn't be surprised to see Hudler on the trading block before long.

Hell a place like Edmonton, he could be a 30 goal scorer I bet.

I like Huds. I just feel "At this time", that it might be in both our interests and his interests, to consider other options. Or at least, start considering them.



What happens if we trade Huds for prospects and one forward goes down to injury?

Fortunately Kenny is not as short sighted as you are.
Do or do not. There is no try

Even if we somehow manage to lose tonight, i'm confident we'll get at least one pint out of this game with Jimmay in net.

Miller and Eaves both play, it's that simple.

So the top 2 lines tonight are

Filppula Datsyuk Holmstrom
Franzen Z Hudler

Sounds good to me. Hopefully we can get everyone going. If the Modano line ever slows down I think that putting reuniting Clears with Flip and Pav would be a good move.

If they said those are the lines for tonight during the pregame, I so called this in last games thread. But I would expect Z and D to get double shifted.

In know this has been answered before, but what does SHMB mean? I see it everywhere. Is it for the cameramen or something?

So, we're dogpiling on the goalie sammy Hudler the defense the refs league bias against us coaching now? Ok.

Babcock is lazy and he sucks!

It is amazing that we can mix and match like we do. It's a luxury that we can afford to move things around to get guys going. It's nice to be winning games while you experiment with line changes. It sucks when you're forced to shuffle lines just to win, but it's pretty cool when you're just shuffling lines so you can win "Better".

I hope this isn't one of those games where Lidstrom can't hit the net. But I suspect he'll get going again this game and have a great night!

Any link for online stream or radio stream? It says 97.1 on the Wings website. But the Lions post game excuses show is on.
