I heard the Grand Rapids - Cleveland AHL game on the weekend. According to the Cleveland announcers Hudler was great. He had several chances to score and finally capitalized in overtime with a wicked shot. Maybe more importantly he set up many scoring chances with pin point passing. I consider this to be impressive because he was only just demoted so he has assimilated his teammates abilities (or lack thereof) very quickly.

I would take Michalek but not by a huge margin.
The guy has i think 20 pts or so in 18 games in the AHL as a 19 yr old.
This time next year he could very well be putting up higher numbers, the kid has had great success in every league he's been in. SO what if he hasent had NHL success yet. He's 19 and still had to learn the game better along with puttin on more muscle and since he's 19 he could still very well grow a inch or 2
