Solid pick-up for a team that could sorely use some center depth, but the price is a weeeee bit steep to me. In the long run I think it'll be a good trade, though. He'll be happy with his new surroundings, and Nashville already has plenty of prospect depth.
The most popular choice among the Red Wings as to who would volunteer to play goalie – several Panthers did in their game – was Brendan Smith.
"He's pretty competitive and he seems to be good at everything," Justin Abdelkader said. "He'd volunteer himself."
Babcock was a bit more hesitant about Smith. "Yeah, yeah, just work on getting out of your zone," Babcock said

Don't hate on the World's Biggest Fish Fry!:D

I'm sorry but I don't care about Mike Fisher or his bride. I find it hilarious that all the media is focusing on the marriage aspect of the trade and not ONE announcer has focused solely on the trade alone. Poor guy will forever be known as Carrie Underwood's husband.

I'm not sure I'd use the phrase "poor guy" in this case. :lol:
Thank You TeeMan

not that I agree the $4m is good, I don't, but what are we paying Hudler? $2.9m? for what? We have our share of overpaid players...

There are 135 forwards with higher cap hits than Hudler. He's currently 171st in scoring, ranked in with players who have averaged 2-3 minutes more per game. Hudler is also on a serious roll; since Dec. 27th he's been scoring at a rate for a 70-point season. If that were to continue for the rest of the year he would finish between 45-50 points despite scoring only 6 in his first 30 games.

Your comment about Hudler being overpaid is a few weeks too late.
