from George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press,
(Dan) Cleary said he spoke with Jiri Hudler, who is in the Czech Republic. As much as Cleary would like to see Hudler back with the Wings next season, he doesn’t blame him for signing a two-year deal worth about $10 million tax free with the Moscow Dynamo.
Hudler’s NHL arbitration hearing is scheduled for Thursday in Toronto and the Wings are seeking a two-year award.
“He doesn’t want people to be angry with him,” Cleary said. “I hope people aren’t.”
Cleary said Hudler was given an offer that was too great to pass up: “It would take him seven or eight years to make the kind of money he’ll make in two.”
