And you find it strange that a player wants to make as much as he possibly can?
It's not like Detroit is full of players who have salaries much less than they deserve.
I don't find it strange at all, I find it selfish, especially when in Detroit it has mostly been team before individual. Could he have made more money signing with Tampa or Atlanta or wherever? Sure. But smart players have chosen to stay with a superior league team that has proven success versus higher salary options for the simple result of making more money elsewhere. Does Hudler think he is more important than players such as Draper, Maltby, Modano, Chelios, (and the list goes on), because of 1 years worth of production on a team laden with talent? Dumb decision by him to leave regardless. Especially since he hasn't produced as of late.
The fact that he went to the KHL for more money in the first place is the point yes? Instead of staying with the better team in the better league for "less" like other "loyal" players have done, he went to an inferior league where apparently his skills and work ethic have eroded somewhat.
So what are we supposed to take from this? That the fans are way off base and Colin Cambell is in the right? Whether anything happens to Cambell or not is irrelevant, the actions and language with regard to those emails is unprofessional booools*** from someone in an executive position.
But hey, thanks for stating the obvious McKenzie cause you're a good guy.
