Pretty much all of the guys in the NHL that are 5'10 or smaller have better than average wheels, so I'd peg Hudler as his ceiling. That's not the end of the world, but it's not a very high ceiling and causes me to drop him in my rankings. Hudler definitely has the flintstone feet thing going as well.
Even though Pulkkinen would be a total copy of Hudler, he is still a right-shooting Hudler. That creates a totally different dimension in a roster full of only lefties.
