I honestly think the constant hatred for Hudler is just as funny as Eva's fanatical love. So underrated/underutilized in Detroit

It's extremely unfortunate Holland decided to sign Samuelsson, but I'd take him at 2 years over Hudler's 4 for the simple reason it's 2 less years of having one of these bums on the team.
Personally, I view Hudler as being marginally useful but expendable and replaceable.

Small skilled player who has good hands but can't PK or backcheck or play with any physicality? They have a bunch of guys that fit that bill but have better speed. Granted, they're not proven at the NHL level, but at least one of them could prove themselves if given the opportunity. And they all cost about 1/6 of what he does.
