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.
I don't know why you want to make this Brunner vs Hudler.
Because, IMO, Hudler wins this.

Hudler is a much smarter player than Brunner.
