Hudler Attempts To Leave Red Wings; Hits Legal Snag

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Jiri Hudler signed a two year, 10 million dollar (tax free) deal with the Moscow Dynamo last week. However the NHL is claiming that he was already a signed player since he had filed for arbitration last weekend. The Red Wings are hoping that the IIHF will not approve the transfer on those grounds.

This is a tough situation. I don’t want to lose Hudler, but if he doesn’t want to play in Detroit do we really want him there against his will? We’ll just have to wait and see. I’m hoping they can come to an arrangement where Hudler wants to stay in Detroit. He’s a great player and I’ve really enjoyed watching him over the years.

No Suspension For Mike Brown

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

According to the Detroit Free Press the Red Wings have been informed that Mike Brown will not be suspended for the hit on Hudler in game one. No explanation was given.

If it was a clean hit, then why was he given a game misconduct? If it was a dirty hit then why would he not be suspended? It doesn’t make sense to me. Hopefully, an explanation will be forthcoming.
