Hudler's drive and output never bothered me one bit though, it was just time to move on.

But the way I see things unfolding, they didn't replace Hudler with Sammy. They replaced Hudler with Brunner. Brunner to this point has been as good as Hudler was on Z's wing, he's also younger and faster, and Sammy's gonna fit in better on the 3rd line. They got both Brunner and Sammy for the same price as Hudler. Looks like a good deal to me right now.
Judging from the first few games Sammy for $3 million doesn't look worth it at all. His groin may have been bothering him, but the guy literally did nothing. I'm not even sure if Ken Daniels has said his name during play-by-play
