Hudler's defensive contribution is not much better than Bert's,but Hudler will do more offensively.Yes,Bertuzzi is a lot bigger,but he doesn't use his size ever so it doesn't even matter.People are saying we need to get younger,well letting Bert walk would be a good start.He's not a horrible player,but with Hudler coming back,he'll probably end up with 3rd line duty,which requires some defense,which Bert lacks majorly.There are better options than Bert.
Hudler may not have Helm's hustle or Zetterberg's defense, but he works hard and is above average defensively, neither of which can be said of Bertuzzi. He's also more than a decade younger and a better offensive player. He fits the Wings' system better as well.
