I thought i heard Selanne,Fowler were the only untouchables could be wrong though, even if Hudler slips a little could be a good deal for the Ducks you save 2mill from Ryan to Hudler even if they choose to resign him around the same next season it will give them that extra cap space 1-2mill to spend elsewhere and still leaves key pieces like Perry,Getzlaf,Stuart,Fowler even Hudler on a 2nd,3rd line/PP unit, also like i said Hudler as of right now i believe has the same amount of PTS as Ryan and Brookbank together then you throw in Stuart and a pick or prospect thats pretty good, but ya i agree with you about Hudler needing to to keep putting up PTS until the deadline
At the time of this post, Perry has 35 points while Hudler has 27 with the same amount of games played. If you go back further and look at past seasons, Perry put up 98 pts in 2010/2011, Hudler wasn't even close to that. Perry in 09/10 put up 76 points while Hudler put up 54 in the KHL. If you look at their STATS side by side, Perry is definitely the better player as least as far as points goes. I don't see the Ducks giving up Perry for a guy who has yet to prove that he can consistently bring the offensive power that they would lose with Perry. I'm all for the Ducks taking Hudler, a prospect (such as Tartar) and a few picks. I'm not sure though. I am going to hate to see Stewie go but if the price is right, the return is right, and it can help the Wings make a run at the cup this year, I'll say goodbye with a less bitter heart.
