Hudler? If he starts scoring like he has been in the last couple of games, he's qualify as "redeemed".
If you suck for 40 games, and do well in two, you are not "redeemed". Lets face it, if you f***ed up 40 things to every 2 things you did well, you'd be fired, disowned, and cast to the curb. This applies even if you were a telemarketer making 8 dollars an hour, let alone a professional hockey player making millions.
How is it that we are so forgiving of people making millions? If you paid me 1 million, I would try a tripple flip off a mountain, into a firey lake below. I can't swim, I hate heights, I have no f***in clue how to flip once, let alone triple, and I'm not immune to fire, yet I'd still attempt that s*** for a million.
Yet we pay these guys millions, to do....just what?
If he can do it for the next 40 games, then he is redeemed. Until then, he still has like 3 goals in 40 games.
Good two games. Doesn't mean s*** to me.
If he went half a season sucking, and scores in two random games, there is no proof that he will not suck the rest of the season. Redeemed, is a valuable word. Don't waste it on Hudler, unless he actually lives up to that word.
That said, I'm glad Huds showed up. I do genuinely have faith in him. I think he's a very skilled player.
But I won't be saying "redeemed" for a very long time.
