What to Do with Hudler...?
At $2.85 Million, Hudler had 50 points in last year's regular season, which equals roughly $57,000/point. In comparison, Valterri Filppula--in what most would consider a breakout year--was paid $3 Million and tallied 66 points. The average? $45,000/point. Many would say that they were forced to pay more for Hudler's services than we should have, and perhaps this is true, but let's look at Johan Franzen next. In a very ordinary season, Mule racked up 56 points with a $3.95 Million salary. That averages out to about $70,000/point at almost the exact same output as Hudler.
