So Wings couldn't use a PPG player in the playoffs?
You didn't really thought it through, did you?
But, you see, if Hudler does well, everyone but Eva has to eat crow. We can't have that, so if Hudie is doing well, then we trade him so we can all be happy that we ditched him and then when he stays
good, we can say, "oh, well, guys always do that after
Then everyone will laugh at Eva for saying that Hudler could have kept that pace with the Wings had he stayed.
If he's a PPG player and he stays, people will have to come up with excuses to backpedal to save face. That wouldn't be fun.
So, despite the fact that it's not in the best interest of the team, we must either hope for Hudler to be bad or we must hope for him to be good and then trade him. At least if we trade, we might get something good that we can all like.
