I'm sure if Bertuzzi was playing in a far away country on a team that just folded, he would say he is coming back too. They haven't resigned Lidstrom so does that mean Hudler is higher priority then him just because he hasn't resiged yet? No it means they are actually on our team now so they'll have to wait for playoffs to be done just like every year.
Maybe because Hudler IS COMING back and Bertuzzi may or may not come back? If Kenny wants Bert back so badly (or more than Hudler) I think they'd signed with him already.
And no, as I said I don't care how the results come as long as the come. You people DON'T like Hudler - even if he's tearing it up - just because he is "soft euro" or something like that.
But yeah I do like the way the Red Wings have been playing in the past - skill and puck possession. That's been the key for that success and it's a part of the identity. I find it kinda funny that there are more people critizing these kinda skilled player that have been common in the team rather than the opposite kinda tough guys.
I have nothing against skilled players or tough guys as long as they get the job done. But this team lacks more offense than defense right now and it's a fact.
Oh and the wings have never had an identity as a soft team really. Oly the last like 4 years and they are shifting towards a less skilled, grittier game and tougher game on the bottom lines already so it shows that Kenny is already moving away from small europeans.
