I call revisionist history. Hudler had scored almost 60 points as a third-liner in 2008-09, and was expected to top that production this season as a top-sixer - which is why people call his season horrible. If Hudler had scored the 70 points Babcock expected him to, he would have tied with Joe Thornton for 24th overall. I'm sure you were not interested in having that on the team, instead hoping to have some random veteran sit in the press box every night.

I call 'Hudler slappy' for trying to explain away why someone couldn't have legitimately not wanted Hudler back.

Dallas Drake? You mean the Dallas Drake who began his career as a Wing in 1992-93? I wish he had never been traded, personally. Looking at trades made by the Wings in the past 20-25 years, I think that might be the second-worst trade.


I used to think he was a dirty hitter so I wasn't a big fan of him before the Wings signed him in 07. Then his first game back with the Wings he got in a scrap with Corey Perry and just like that he was on my good side.

Get real. Nobody expected Hudler to score 70 points. And please tell me how you know what Babcocks expectations were, I would love to get in on this insider info. Everyone is hating on Hudler because of his inconsistency and his absolutely pathetic first half. Even when Hudler was putting up points he was invisible most of the time. Watching the games last season nothing ever made me say "wow, good thing we have Hudler on this team", or "I really like Hudler he helps this team out". He was expected to be a powerplay specialist and for the majority of the season I think most here would agree he underperformed and did not do that great of a job on the powerplay. If Hudler is around next season I cant wait for Tatar to knock him out of the top 6 for good.

I agree, that Drake trade in 93-94 was brutal!
