DETROIT – Wings GM Ken Holland said he has me with Jiri Hudler’s agent, Petr Svoboda, and that they’re prepared to offer him a contract.

“He’s 28, he’s coming off a 25-goal season,” Holland said. “He’s got the right to go to free agency. We’ll see what happens. Right now Jiri will continue take time to determine what he wants to do.”

Holland plans to meet with Tomas Holmstrom sometime this week regarding his status for next season.

Holland said he’s had a few conversations with the agents for restricted free agents Quincey, Justin Abdelkader and Darren Helm and will do so again before the draft.

Likely well below what he'd get on the open market.

This is what Helene St. James tweeted to me:

@freepwings: “@tdenninger: @freepwings have you heard Wings gonna offer Hudler a new contract?”/Holland's talked to Hudler, but expect he'll test market

Like I said in the other thread, Jones got 4M, Hudler will want at least that and some team will offer him more. Holland will not pay that price for someone as one dimensional as Hudler.

oldie but goodie lol



Maybe the mayan calendar was correct. No Lids, No Stewie, and keeping Hudler?

But really we shouldn't panic, Huds will test FA where he knows he can get 5 mill from a poop team.

Offer him something reasonable, if he wants to test market ... let him. More money for Parise.

I would much rather see the Wings offer Helm a decent contract, rather then Hudler.

If the Wings sign Hudler I will completely have lost all faith in Ken Holland.

That has to to be the dumbest thing I've heard on this board in a long time. Why?

Holland could announce tomorrow he and Hudler have decided to sign him to a 3 year 9 million dollar contract. Meaning they have locked him up at a reasonable rate for a guy who can give you 20+ goals and 50+ points a season.

3 for 9 would be nice but it's not realistic. However politics come into play here and Holland wouldn't want to piss off his agent so you make him a fair offer that will drive up his price elsewhere.

While he had a great year last year, it was a contract year, meaning he could go back to average old Hudler next season which is the most concerning point.

Pretty much how I feel.

I don't dislike Hudler, but IMHO Hudler needs Detroit more than Detroit needs Hudler...Better off spending that $$$ on someone else.

Anser Khan reporting that it's unlikely he'll sign.

We know Hudler is money motivated. Doubt we'll see him back. Remember the cap hits on Franzen ($3.95m) and Filppula ($3.5m). He's not going to be offered more than that, weak market or not.

One dimensional player with very little postseason product. He won't be missed as some seem to think.

Hudler doesn't have a place on the roster if we sign Parise.

I think his slow start the year after playing the KHL had to do more with ice-time and his role on the team as soon as injuries hit and Babcock had to use him he piled up 31 points in the last 42 games of the year (a 60 point pace) despite often being relegated out of the top 6
