Hey, who else got into the NHL as an undersized skilled forward, was pigeonholed by hardass coaches, worked his ass off to improve his speed, skating, and strength, and became an elite player? I'll give you a hint: He plays for Tampa Bay.

I'm with you all the way. I am convinced that Huds is a point per game player given the proper ice time. I'd keep him over Filppula any day.
