I don't see Brunner as being as good or as valuable as Hudler... Yet. But he looks like he could have that potential if an when he gets more assertive and grows to understand the NHL game.
But Hudler doesn't skate like Brunner...that's like me saying if Brunner was as big as Chara he'd be a big time hitter in the NHL...

I think the 2 players are very comparable....Both are undersized shooters who aren't that responsible defensively. Neither will be winning many battles along the boards, but both will put up a respectable # of points providing they get their ice-time.

The only real difference I see between them is that Hudler is probably a slightly better passer, while Brunner is a far better skater. Although there are still a lot of questions to be answered about Brunner seeing as he's only played 6 games.
