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.
I think because of Brunner speed, something Hudler has almost none of earned him a spot in the top 6. Hudler put up points in the top 6 no doubt, but right off the get go Hudler was getting PP time and wasnt doing anything with it either. Brunner is playing with good line mates but hes not riding their coattails, the guy is creating offense as well.

The fact that he has shown without knowing the system he can step in and contribute like this and help create offense is something Hudler didnt do when he came back at first. Brunner has taken his opportunity and ran with it big time
