    It's early but they're on pace for 246 points between them.

    Hudler - 4GP 2G 3A
    Filppula - 3GP 1G 1A
    Brunner - 4GP 3G 1A

    I definitely wouldn't have minded holding onto Brunner.

    I also believe he was holding out for a better deal, which didn't come, so he settled much later for a similar contract with better minutes.

    Same here, I still say that he would have brought way more to the table then Cleary.

    Brunner and Hudler will be easily replace with Nyquist and Tatar. Flip wonted too much money. Happy for those 3 , but we should move on

    Don't understand hate for Cleary. Line Cleary-Anderson- Bert is going to surprise many of you this year

    When they start putting up points on a semi-regular basis and aren't awful defensively as a unit, I'll have blown right past surprised and into "completely stunned" territory.

    Or they might make history as worst plus minus 4th line of all time?

    They are on a pretty good pace so far. :handclap::laugh:

    Right to bad that Nyquist-Andersson-Tatar would be far better then what Babcock is giving us now.

    Let's not forget the reason we got rid of Hudler and Flip. It wasn't because they couldn't produce points. It's that they weren't effective game changers. They don't spark their lines. They benefit from their lines. I'm assuming that's the case here. These guys aren't guys you rely on to carry your team. I'll eat crow when they're in the playoffs and making victory possible for their teams.

    Flip was a fit issue - we needed a true #2C, and Weiss is that.

    Brunner we should have kept - dumb move by Holland, IMO.

    4/4 for Hudler was about $1M high and a year longer than the Wings would have offered. He was also terribly inconsistent and other things which I can't remember but I know I was totally on board with him leaving (and still am).

    Brunner is the only move I disagreed with.

    None of the 3 were "core" guys, and kinda priced themselves out of town. I wouldn't have cared if we kept one of the 3 for our wing depth, but also don't really mind that they walked. We have Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, etc. on the way who will hopefully provide at least the same impact, ideally even more than what we got from these 3.

    Brunner should have been brought back. It's inexcusable that the Wings went with Cleary.

    Don't care about Flip and Hudler. I would have traded them at the deadline. Wings weren't contending with them on the roster. Just more bad roster management by Ken Holland.
