Haydar

I'm seeing that Haydar is having an excellent playoffs in the AHL and having a career year.

Could someone give me his potential to make the NHL or is this guy a career AHLer?

Thanks.

most likely a career AHL'er.

he doesn't have the foot speed for the NHL, especially for his 5'8" frame.

Agreed. The AHL has always had Darren Haydars.

I hate the labeling of a player who has never even been given a shot. I know the odds are stacked against him, but I'd really like to see him given a good shot at one point or another, although it probably wouldn't be with the Preds.

I would love to see him get a chance too. He does seem like a career AHLer, but while he doesn't have speed, he's got the creativity, talent, and hockey sense to possibly succeed at the NHL level. Some team would be wise to give him a shot at the NHL level. A team that doesn't have a lot to lose and needs scoring punch but not size. Just give him 20 games of solid ice time to see what happens. Unfortunately, like Gamache, he'll never got more than a quick look on some crappy team's second line, and when he doesn't immediately produce, he'll be demoted and never heard from again. The new NHL is more conducive to players like Gamache and Haydar than ever before. While it rewards speed most of all, it also doesn't allow bigger defenseman to drape themselves all over opposing forwards. This creates space which both Gamache and Haydar use very, very well.

Poile said on an interview during an Ads game in Houston that he would love to see Haydar get a shot in the NHL "with us or someone else.....he can always look to me as an excellent reference to any GM.....he is a big game player and always a pure professional and a credit to the organization".........


Sounds to me like Poile would like to see someone give him a chance as well.......

Very similar to Gamache. Could possibly be similar to the Gamache situation of this past season if he were to be called to duty with the Preds. It's too bad for Haydar because he has excellent skills, creativity, and finishing ability, however, I don't thinik that's going to help to overcome his other shortcommings already mentioned in this thread. As an Ads fan, I realize his days are numbered, for the time being, in Milwaukee if he is to get his well-deserved shot at some time in the NHL. He's been one of the most consistant, durable, and dependable scorers the Ads have had in years, and we've had Tony Hrkac for a few stretches and Gamache here too (who has signed a contract with the Swiss League for next season).

Haydar refused to redo his contract to get below the waiver threshold so he has to be exposed to waivers to be called up, putting us on the hook for half his salary. I don't see us doing that with him. And honestly I don't think he's delusional about ever being a full time NHL player or he would have redone his contract.

I thought that that might be the case. I wasn't sure where to find that out so I didn't comment on it. Good news from an Ads fan's perspective.
