Hudler, due to his size and skating limitations, is an ideal 3rd line winger on a 3rd line that can be dangerous and actually score. But he scores enough that he's coveted on the free agent market. That's why I think Brunner is a potential Hudler replacement, but only if he can do his thing on the 3rd line. An actual skill guy on the third line who could help elevate the line.

That said, I don't see him making the big club at all. Ideally, Nyquist takes that role on the third line and helps make it a dangerous scoring line.... and we get 2 wingers... Pipe dream, I know (Parise and Semin), but if we get Semin and we rotate the hottest of Bertuzzi and Nyquist into the top 6, having a Brunner (if he can make the club) on the 3rd would be great.

Let's just hope he can play and is willing to work to be a Wing. Ultimately that's all that matter with him.
