Flames sign Jiri Hudler, $16M over 4 years

02 Jul

“Jiri Hudler is a highly skilled and dynamic offensive player,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “He is one of the very best goal scorers in the NHL at even strength and he puts a very high percentage of his shots on net, generating scoring chances for himself and rebound opportunities for his teammates. He fits our need to upgrade and improve our skill and we are very pleased to have him on board.”

Hudler has played 409 career games all with the Detroit Red Wings. Over his seven NHL seasons, he has accumulated 87 goals, 127 assists for 214 points and 160 penalty minutes. Last season Hudler scored a career high 25 goals and added 25 assists for 50 points and 42 penalty minutes in 81 games with the Red Wings. Hudler won a Stanley Cup as a member of the Detroit Red Wings in 2008.

So let’s speculate some lines  at this particular moment in time, shall we?

Glencross    Cammalleri        Iginla
Tanguay       Hudler                 Cervenka
Baertshi        Backlund            Stempniak
Comeau        Jones/Stajan    Jackman

    Two small wingers are now our top two centres? I sure hope Cervenka lives up to the lofty expectations and can be a number 2 centre. If Backlund and Stajan show up this year, that might help a bit too. Let the race for 8th place in the West begin (…again)!!!!
