All the talk in the hockey world right now is about where free agents are going to sign, but it's important to not forget that trades could always happen.
The Detroit Red Wings have not made any deals yet this offseason, but if one happens, chances are it will include Jiri Hudler. According to Greg Brady of Sportsnet Radio in Toronto, the Red Wings tried to trade Hudler at the NHL Draft and offered him to quite a few teams.
Red Wings are eagerly trying to move Jiri Hudler & offered him to loads of teams (Leafs included) at the Draft. Be shocked if he's back.
With both Patrick Eaves and Drew Miller re-signing, the Red Wings seem to be set at forward barring a trade. Perhaps they will be able to create some room by dealing Hudler, but so far they haven't been able to find a team willing to take him and his $2,875,000 cap hit.
