everyone knew hudler wouldnt be back but i feel bad for him since he was a wing for so long i hoped he'd have picked a good team , wow calgary flames?? hes not done himself any favors

wouldnt be susprised if hes in europe once his contract ends


I know. Happy Hudler has always been a Red Wing and to see him wear another jersey will be weird. I kind of hoped he would have at least gone to a decent one.

The comments from Calgary's GM about Hudler were like a flashback to me back when Toronto signed Brett Lebda. I remember emphasis on his versatility, speed and veteran leadership because he has a ring. Yet mostly everyone on here was laughing or celebrating.

Although I suppose I shouldn't knock Brett Lebda too much or else next thing we know Kenny's going to bring him back to the D and say over and over again how the Wings live in a "salary cap era." :no:

Who here was prepared to give Huddles 4 mil a year? Exactly, no one.

No s***. Another overpayment by another GM. I will laugh my ass off when he's on the 1st line driving Iginla crazy.

Just as I was going off in a different thread about Wings fans always pooping on ex-Red Wings without any appreciation for what they did, I contradict myself by saying I'm happy to be rid of Hudler.

That being said, we need to keep in perspective that Hudler never really made that much money for the Wings, and we just committed a cap hit to Samuelsson of $3 million, which is probably worse than committing $2.875 million to Hudler. In Hudler's first stint with the wings (pre-KHL), he only cost us about an even million against the cap.

He wasn't a terrible player, but he was never a good fit on this team, and not nearly talented enough to be a "bad fit". Basically, he's our poor man's "Alexander Radulov".

*sigh*

I figured he wasn't coming back after we signed Sammy.
I know he wasn't a very good fit here, but I'll miss him anyway. Thanks Happy, good luck in Calgary. :)

Where's Eva when you need em

Over on letsgoflames.com posting a passionate defense of the Hudler signing already would be my guess.

"The Flames plan to use Hudler lots — and everywhere. On the power play. On the penalty kill."

:shock:

I'm sure his size, reach and speed will benefit the Flames greatly on the PK. Oh wait...

What's so crazy about that? He was an important part of our PK. He sat in the box so the defensively-skilled guys could play.

The same one the number of Calgary fans raving about this pickup saying it's great because Hud's is fast, can forecheck and backcheck, will mentor their young Czech blah blah blahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......must have watched. I think it was filmed in the land of Narnia.

He supposedly has a way with the ladies...of the evening. Rumor was his really hot model girlfriend caught him with 2 hookers right before he started up in the KHL & dumped him. True or not, the story's kinda taken on a life of its own around here.
