Hudler came back
the Wings won
the Wings/media probably aren't going to whine about it nearly as much
If the league wants to be consistent, that's 2+ games (given the apparently less severe injury), but it would be the wrong call at the same time. I'm sure they'll find a way to be both inconsistent and still wrong, though.
