Brunner is doing much better and is seemingly getting better every game. If he isnt already better than Hudler hes pretty much on par with him. Offensively theyre close I would say but Brunner is a much better skater and stronger on the boards
I don't know if you forget, or if you have an intentional selective memory.

But Hudler came back and played with Helm or Abdelkader as his center.
When he played with Datsyuk, he was a point-per-game player.

Where do you think Brunner would be right now with Abs or Emmerton as his center and 2nd until PP time, if any. I think we know exactly where he would be.

Some would be screaming for him to get demoted to the AHL while others would be screaming for top Top 6 minutes.
