Awesome news!
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

From the article:

Only New Jersey’s Zach Parise (31 goals) and Anaheim’s Teemu Selanne (26 goals) scored more among players eligible for unrestricted free agency.

Whee! Let's get rid of him!

At the right price I wouldn't mind getting him back, but thats just going to drive his price way up so I am happy to say goodbye.

That is the best news I have heard in a long time. I hope he signs elsewhere first thing on July 1st.
To bad Iam not in Detroit. I would have personally escorted him out of city.

At the article's suggested 3.3 million, I'd be happy to have him come back. At more than that, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I will miss happy, he stepped up for us in a big way enough for me to tip the cap that's for sure. We just lost a 50 point guy, granted I would rather Semin then Hudler but now Kenny needs no less then two scorers. Doan and Semin are the best two I've heard so far...a little off topic but a checking line featuring Doan, Bertuzzi & ??? would be great...

If he leaves Kenny's job just got harder. For all the flak Hudler takes, he's still a 25 goal scorer, which means now we need to find TWO top 6 scorers if we want to improve on last year.

As with most people the cost is the big issue to me. I'd take him at 3 million, but at more than that he just doesn't provide the grit or the reliability we need as a team.

Great news! Just hoping that Mr Holland can sign Parise and Suter. After that we still will have money to spend on another forward. I would love to se Semin i Red Wings, but i doubt that we can afford him if we sign Suter and Parise.
Does anyone know if Detroit have any interest in Nash? A part of me hopes that they dont have any interest in him, beacuse the wings will have to give up too much.
Sorry for my poor english spelling :tounge:

So long Happy Hudler. I was disappointed you could not find your 08' form, I really wanted you to. I like him, honestly, but I can see why we would let him walk now. All the best for a really good Wing. :bye1:

I hope he signs quickly with someone else, that way we will know for sure that we have the money to spend.

I am super glad his 25 goals are so easy to replace. Once Parise re-signs in New Jersey, and Semin bolts to the KHL, exactly how are we improving from last season?

Peace out....hopefully just means more ice time for Helm to bury the biscuit.

I also think that the first big name we sign could open the flood gates. If playing with Dats and Z isn't enough for Parise or Suter, maybe adding Semin or Doan to the pile could help their decision. Just a thought.....
