It sounds like Andrei is unhappy in Montreal and the rumor is he is being shopped.

Would you trade for him?

Hudler for Kostitsyn or maybe Hudler/Emmerton for Kostitsyn?

It seems like he has potential to be a 60-70 point player in our system and his cap hit this year is $3.25m.

I don't know a lot about him but he has good size and puts up good numbers. In my opinion I think he could be a difference maker with the Wings.


What's your opinion?

Sure thing.

This trade would finally silence those posters who complain about us not having enough toughness on the roster.

If they would do Hudler and Emmerton for Kostitsyn then I would definitely say yes. Hudler wouldnt be a major loss and I have to think he will probably be gone after this year anyways and the Wings can also get something back out of Emmerton instead of losing him on waivers if he doesnt make the cut. Kostitsyn is a pretty decent player and I wouldn't want to give up much more for him value wise than Hudler/Emmerton, but I do agree he seems to have the skill set to reach his potential in the Wings system.

Only way I would take him is if the trade involved Hudler but even then it's a lateral move. We need to get better not stay stagnant.

I still remember the terrible anticipation of Montreal players possibly involved in prostitution rings or drug smuggling or something of that sort only to find that the whole thing was about them partying with someone who knows someone in the mob.

Just ask Hudler. He'll tell ya.

Can he be worst than Hudler though drama wise? I think not. But his 3.2 cap hit is the thing. But at least his numbers are good and paired with even better linemates could probably be better. I'd say :thumbup: to this is my 2 cents.

Hudler is not bad drama-wise.

Really? Complaining about not having a girlfriend and saying I'm leaving to play in the KHL, then coming back. To me that's a degree of drama. :P

Complaining about not having a girlfriend? Wasn't that Leino?

Hudler did cheat on his girlfriend in 2009 with some prostitutes though.
