#2176847 Hudler's Future

Posted by ben_usmc on 18 May 2011 - 04:29 PM

He was #2 in goal scoring on the team this year, and he probably would have been #1 if he hadn't been hit in the ankle with a slapshot. He's fast, he hits hard, he's great defensively, and he never takes a shift off; indeed, I think he's one of the hardest-working players in the league when he's on the ice. He was, in this season, one of our best forwards.

Were you even paying attention during the regular season? I don't see how you could have made this statement if you'd actually been watching the games.

Sorry for having a difference of opinion, I watched every game this year and since he came back from the injury was nothing special. He certainly was not one of our best forward nor did he look like hwas working hard (especially in the playoffs) of course on here apparently we don't allow others to have their own opinions. Cleary is the most overrated player by LGW

also my 2nd statement was meant about hudler

Why do you want a gritty, hard-working player like Cleary gone?

Because he has progressively has gotten worse

when you have to work that hard to justify a player even being on the roster, he most likely shouldn't be there

I think he deserves another shot everyone has a down year look how many people wanted cleary gone after last year or Datsyuk traded in 05'06 because he never produced in playoffs. I was down on him alot this year but I dont think he just forgot how to score.

I still want Cleary gone, but Hudler much much more. Datsyuk, I never understood why anyone could have doubted him, just like Fisher

#2176406 Which conference would you rather have the Wings in?

The West because it's a better conference

#2166512 WCSF Game 3 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

team needs to trade filppula while he has some value. dude is invisible right now. not a shooter, not a passer, not a shutdown forward, not a hitter...what the hell does he do?

if i read one more poster call him something like "datsyuk-lite" i'm going to vomit. get rid of him, fast.

will someone take hudler at his salary? small+slow = s*** COMBO.

cleary is BRUTAL. lost almost every single board battle. literally could hardly even take a pass. i thought he was supposed to be healthy and ready to perform? he played like he had a learning disability.

almost 9 mil is WAY too much to be tied up in these 3 clowns.

of course bert and homer are near-useless, but thanks to holland we have them for another glorious year.

ericsson...well let's just say that if you think he should be back (at a higher salary than he has right now, probably more than double), you're smoking crack.

Pretty much, can't wait to see them all resigned. Hopefully he can give Draper a slight increase on his next, possibly making it a 4 year.
Maybe Ozzy and Modano can comeback to.

This team is so complacent from the Front office down

As long as we have some speed and youth in I'm all for it...I said Hudler as I think I glanced up and saw him turn it over again

agreed, we are beat the puck at both ends of the ice every damn time

Am I the only one who would rather go in seeded 3rd so we don't have to face Anaheim?

nope, ideally

We go in 3rd face a banged up LA team. SJ takes on the Ducks and it is a war, and Chi/Van.

He absolutely drives me nuts with his inconsistent play. And yeah, even MORE than some of the others' inconsistent play. <_< He's obviously got what it takes to be a force and he will not come through - for whatever reasons.

because we could have kept Hossa who actually plays defense, has heart, and has even dropped the damn gloves. Mule is such a heartless ***** it pisses me off

Franzen was about to hit toews with his purse

#2139616 Babcock Underperforming?

Posted by ben_usmc on 31 March 2011 - 04:33 PM

someone needs to do something more than justf****** talk. I could give a f*** less about what babcock has to say how about he ices a team taht at least gives a s*** for more than 2 games a month. I have been a person that has said for a while we will still go deep we just don't care etc. But to watch such uninspired hockey is insulting and i find it more insulting they force fans to have to pay so much money to see players just go through somef****** motions. At least s***ty teams like Isles, Avs, try.

I thought he'd be an extremely effective 3rd liner. However he seems to be consistantly improving. You can tell he has worked his hands alot and they are slowly catching up with his speed, if he can completly put those 2 features together he may very well be a 1st liner. Right now I do think he would be an effective 2nd liner, he has something this team lacks and that is heart. He doesn't take a shift off adn if he's knocked down he pops right back up, also you basically have to move the camera out anytime opposing teams player is on a breakway because he back checks like it's the SC finals every s***.
