I see no reason to change what's working, we're winning games, he's contributing. He knows his role, he's accepted it, he's not pouting about not being out on the ice, he knows the situation. Babcock isn't messing with him because Hudler knows exactly what his role is and he knows his icetime is going to be limited.
I am fine with his IT at ES. I have no idea what Babcock wants him to do, when he wants him on the ice and I would not say there is anything wrong there.
But Babcock could give him some PP time/shifts. It has been pointed out many times by several posters that Hudler has a very good shot and as not so many Wings forwards shoot the puck enough and have no so good shot, Hulder should be given some more shifts on the PP. And I think we are going to see this happen in the coming games.
