    At the time of the Expansion Draft this place had many vocal posters who were flabbergasted at the stupidity of Marc Bergevin not protecting Charles Hudon and then they were flabbergasted at the stupidity of George McPhee not drafting Charles Hudon.

    None of those people, of course, have subsequently stated they were wrong about Hudon.

    He absolutely is worse than Scherbak. Hudon can't skate at the NHL level, period, and none of his other skills are good enough to compensate for that.

    He quite simply isn't an NHL quality player.

    I don't think he's as good as either of those guys.

    let me know when Scherbak puts up 30 pts in 72 games in the NHL.

    Hudon - 39 pts 110 games .3545 ppg
    Scherbak - 8 pts in 37 games .2162 ppg

    I do think Scherbak has more skill but he had an even worse year then Hudon and that's saying something as Hudon was terrible.

    He'll always be Hudon't. His stats are sickening.

    I don't get it, what's the problem with anything he said? He wanted a contract, he got one and now he's focused on the season but wants to put last season behind him and while he hopes he stays here he knows that might not be in the cards.

    I have heard something about Hudon....not sure i would like to share it here but since you ask.

    Do you ever wonder how some media s were pushing so hard for Hudon? Why a journalist like Machabee almost made it look like he was his son?

    Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.

    It's well known Habs don't want their local players talking too much to the local medias. Apparently Hudon has a big mouth and still does......

    Bad optics to look like you're still whining after you got a gifted contract. And I'm one of the bigger hudon defenders on this board.

    I'm in the states and I don't follow any media for the Habs, so that's something I can't speak to but what local player hasn't the media pushed hard for? From the years of reading this board it sounds like just about every local player has been pushed hard by the media.

    I don't know if Hudon has a big mouth or not, all I know is he needs to show a lot more on the ice or he's going to be an AHLer player no matter how badly he doesn't want to be.

    I don't see any whining, my French isn't very good but it sounds like he was asked if he talked to MB and he said not since early summer. Seems like a nothing burger there.

    Sure, they are rooting for them all but some more than others and Hudon was one of them.

    It's an interesting theory, and I don't doubt you, but it'd be funny for Bergevin to slowly come around to hating the local media after they handed him the job on a silver platter :laugh:

    He should have switched his name around to Michel Torré, that would do it.

    He just said he wanted more explanations, which is totally normal in his situation.

    Of course it's normal, now just shut up about it in the medias…...the whole world doesn't need to know that.
    Just do like the rest of the players, if you have a problem just go to the coach and don't talk about it to the medias.

    Don't you think Lehkonen would like a shot at the top 6 or that Deslauriers also wanted to play or Peca.......but you don't hear about it in the medias.

    Pretty sure Deslauriers told the Media that he wants to play and works hard for it but in the end the coach has to make decision that will make the team win. No one said he was whining. Hudon pretty much said the same thing, in his own words.

    People just rely every comments he makes to last year when he couldn't hold himself.

    To me, it's no big deal. He's just being honest towards the Media and it's not whining. He needs to work harder than he ever had and wants to do it with more help from the coaches.

    Coach : Charles, you will be left out today aswell.
    Charles : Oh man... What do I need to work hard on to make the team?

    Of course Bergevin avoided Hudon.

    Didn’t want to have to explain how little Julien thinks of him and how much he’s going to enjoy Laval next season. :sarcasm:
