When he played on the 3rd line,he was mostly playing against other 3rd lines.He's gonna be competing with better players if he plays on the 2nd line.
Hudler will be a bust?
He scored 57 points drifting between the 3rd and 4th lines, half of which (29) came at ES with virtually no help. Should he be played on the top two lines with skilled linemates, he'll easily match that kind of output if not exceed it significantly.
