For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

[Signing] Flames sign Jiri Hudler

90 posts in this topic

Hudler played with Datsyuk last year and he has yet to reach the level of scoring brad boyes achieved in his career.

$1m on boyes is a way better move for a cap strapped team like the flames.

I like the signing. I think Calgary will benefit with Hudler. Too bad the rest of the team is terrible.

Im willing to bet that you didnt see Boyes play any game last year

And the scouts have.

Too early to tell either way

Well you lost the bet, time to pay up. Watched Brad Boyes play against Vancouver and he looked great.

Meh. It's all relative - for Cowtown, this is a steal.

Not sure what they intend to use to fill all the other holes in their lineup. Cap space is getting very very thin. In that respect, this signing was just duhhhhhmmmmbbbbbbb.

I'd take Boyes @ 1M over Hudler @ 4M any day of the week. So would Calgary. Still, better they got him rather than nothing, they need something.

At what point is Feaster going to realise that they need to stop overpaying old guys who are way past their prime?

Part of the reason why the nucks are so good is cause they are still young.

Our Oldest player (Malhotra) is 32.our only regulars over 30 are the twins, burr, and kb3 (excluding lui cause he will be gone)

Hudler old and past his prime?! He is 28. He was 50 point guy in talented Detroit. Scored 25 goals.

I think it is a great deal by Flames!

Not only yours but reading other comments as well makes me think you don't know much about hockey players outside VAN organization. And all comments seem to be a reflection of your hate towards other Canadian teams…

So childish... but then again... I know where I'm posting.

i guess the question is "Is it worth 4m to upgrade three roster spots?" ...yes three. Hudler upgrades Stempniak at the 2nd line rw spot, who in turn upgrades Nemisz on the 3rd line, who in turn upgrades Tim Jackman on the fourth line...honestly, Jackman's minus 21 is a very good place to start investigating why the flames didn't make the playoffs.

Well Flames have to overpay to get FAs to sign with them. Hudler did originally want 5M apparently.

He is a better set-up guy than a scorer and the Flames need more set-up guys. They really need to improve in the circle though, tey got killed in faceoffs last year.

@DarrenDreger Gillis said he had no contact with Hudler's agent. Flames obviously did.

Hudler played mostly with Zetterberg and Filpulla last year. Although some can argue that Zetterberg is just as good as Datsyuk.
