Havent seen this posted anywhere. I doubt he cracks the line up but if hes okay with signing a 2-way he could be a decent depth addition depending on how his try out goes.

Meh. He's done nothing but underachieve ever since signing with Dallas after all that hype.

I'd like him for GR though, but highly doubt he'd be willing to go back to the minors again.

Ken Holland: He’s (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, he’s a puck hound.

No harm, no foul to bring him into camp for a tryout imo.

At this point he could be competing with Cory Emmerton for the 14th forward spot. Or maybe he will end up in GR. I'd rather see him in GR and work his way back up (if ever)

Interesting, did they think he was going to be able to get more points than that? or are there other issues with this guy?

Less hype, a bit older, a bit more humble... We'll see what happens at the training camp but there might be some upside left...

The guy who scored a hat trick in his first NHL game? He's still pretty young and has some potential so why not.

Interesting. Anyone have any reports on him? All i really remember is the hype a few years back. Looking at his numbers, it seems like he had a pretty good rookie season with the Stars but nothing after that.

I'm all for a try out, though, hopefully he realizes some of that potential.

Maybe this will jog people's memories:

TSN: Brunnström talks to Red Wings, Canadiens next

After He decided to sign with Dallas instead of Detroit, the Wings went out and picked up a different player who flopped with his initial NHL team. Remember him?

Top six or bust.

Not going to hope or root for him all that much until I see a little more progress and where he's at today.

You say that like Ville Leino has done anything except sign a contract too big for his britches.

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

Im all for it! The guy still has loooooads of potential. Lets see what he can do when hes fighting for a roster spot instead of having one given to him.

Hes the kind of guy I would love to see on our 3rd line, if he can get his s*** together.

Franzen, Datsyuk, Bertuzzi

Cleary, Zetterberg, Mursak

Brunnstrom, Filppula, Hudler

Abdelkader/Holmstrom, Helm, Eaves

Miller
Emmerton(traded?)

That looks like a deadly line up to me. :thumbup:
be about it!

Maybe we can reverse some of that Ville Leino Karma/Voodoo and he'll turn into the guy we hoped Leino could be.
Either way, we're not gambling much on the kid.

I really don't mean to make this a Hudler thread... but Mursak has to earn a spot in the lineup first. And beyond that, the Cleary/Zetterberg/Hudler and Cleary/Datsyuk/Hudler lines were absolutely DEADLY combinations last season. So how about we start with:

Hudler/Datsyuk/Cleary
Franzen/Zetterberg/Holmstrom
Brunnstrom/Filppula/Bertuzzi
Mursak/Helm/Eaves

OR

Hudler/Zetterberg/Bertuzzi
Filppula/Datsyuk/Franzen
Cleary/Helm/Eaves
Brunnstrom/Abdelkader/Holmstrom

The third line here is basically a ramped up version of the fourth line in the previous lineup. This lineup also allows for less even strength time for Homer while still keeping him in an effective role; his line has some offensive talent but can be used as a checking line as it is anchored by Abdelkader. I would expect, though, to have something closer to the first lineup but with Abdelkader instead of Brunnstrom.
