Hudler making his case
 
jiri Hudler bounced back from a shaky first exhibition game to score two gaols (and get robbed of another) in the Wings 5-3 loss to the Rangers.

Hudler is competing with Boyd Devereaux and Jason Williams for the final two spots in the Wings lineup. Devereaux and Williams can't be sent down without clearing waivers. Apparently, contrary to earlier reports, Hudler can be sent to Grand Rapids in the AHL instead of Vsestins in the Czech league.
But the Wings may be forced into an interesting decision if Hudler continues to impress the team.

How he lasted that far in the draft I'll never understand (a little guy with a ton of talent is better than a big guy with none). The wings pulled off a steal once again.

Devereaux clearly isn't going to do anything useful, so I definitely see the Wings giving Hudler an initial spot on the roster. I think they should put him on a line with a big physical guy like a Shanahan/McCarty/Holmstrom etc.

I agree that Hudler fell too far, but I was at the draft and I can tell you the reason he fell so far in my opinion is that he was the size of a 9 year old girl. Hoenstly when I saw him I was shocked a tiny little man.

I wish him the best at the NHL level, but I would have passed on him in the 1st round too.

I think the other reason is that he had a very serious injury about two years ago.

:yo: Woot, wtg Jiri!

This kid has kept my attention for the last year. I dunno why, I just feel he's going to give a lot of fun to every wings and nhl fans for the next decade. Pure talent. One of my favorite outside the Habs farm. I wish him the best...

:bow:

He's been paired with Shanahan in camp, and they've clicked. He's also played well with Williams.....

Holmstrom-Zetterberg-Yzerman
Whitney-Datsyuk-Hull
Shanahan-Hudler-Williams

Hudler article
 
Here's a nice article on the future Wing's stud:

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but the hit he took from Lacouture Saturday is not a hit he should be taking. Hudler will not be able to survive if he keeps getting hit by big guys that hit hard. It's why Datsyuk has survived at his size; Hudler needs to develop better instincts when it comes to not taking a big hit. I think he needs some more seasoning personally.

Hudler Hudler Hudler...everyone wants to know how Derek King is doing!
He set up a beauty on one of Hudlers goals...

Did you see him hit Kasparaitus in the corner and take the puck? Old Darius folded like a house of cards. :joker:

Evilo 09-23-2003 08:33 AM

Well it's not like Darius is any good anyway...

It was more of a slow motion kind of tackle than a hit to be fair. Hudler's spunk is good, but taking a big hit like that from a big player is not good.

I hope thats something he will probably will learn if he hasn't already. The good sign was that big hit didn't take him off his game. Alot of smaller players will take a hit and will be useless for the rest of the game.
