Yep. Scratch Hudler because the team as a whole has scored four goals in the past four games while giving up 16 goals (15 plus an empty netter). Clearly it's because Hudler didn't produce enough, and not because Conklin **** the bed or because the entire team failed to produce any offensive results. Datsyuk came up with no goals and three assists over the span. He received an assist on Zetterberg's goal against San Jose, despite having not touched the puck for probably three or four minutes.

If Babcock seriously thinks that scratching an offensively talented player on a team that has been having scoring issues is going to HELP, he needs to be given a head shake.

Miller or Eaves should be out of the lineup, not Hudler.
