Yup. Got a 5th rounder & Ole-Kristian Tollefsen for Leino.


A 5th rounder that turned out to be Mattias Backman. Not any real excitement for the kid right now but ah well.

I strongly believe he would have been better off playing in GR than Dallas. This is the proof.

I have to say though... he is going to end up being picked up off waivers... I predict by the Islanders.

Just call it a hunch.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I'd be on board with maybe signing him to a two-way deal using him as a call-up forward if we need one during the season I can't see him making the Red Wings roster but he could add some depth to the Griffins roster and if he does well enough maybe he gets more time in the NHL. I'd be on board if the Wings could make it work without sacrificing what we have now.

Though Emmerton should be getting ready for a fight.

My thoughts exactly... the signing of Conner and now the Brunnstrom try-out are REALLY going to push Emmerton in camp...

How crazy would it be if Brunnstrom came into camp like a beast and worked his way not only onto the team, but actually into the lineup, that would really throw a wrench into things...

All and all though, these are good problems to have

I would imagine that's the deal it has to be for Brunnstrom to stay with the Wings this season. He could make it as the 14th forward over Emmerton but really he's the type of player that would fit well on a 3rd line that has a chance to produce.

Best case scenario he turns into a first year Samuelsson acquisition. Samuelsson hadn't put up more than 8 goals and 22 points before coming to Detroit, getting a chance to play, and putting up 23 g and 22 a.

Worst case scenario, he fizzles in training camp and Brunnstrom goes back to Sweden.

Well, Holland could either be hoping for a miracle with Brunnstrom turning into a secondary scorer, or else he's just giving Brunnstrom a chance to show off for other teams and get his career going again.

Not the first time he's done that for someone. I think we could make a full team of players who've come through our tryouts. Not a good team- maybe good enough to beat Edmonton- but a team nonetheless.

It's a good situation. We get the cream of the crop, and the rest get the opportunity to advertise themselves to go elsewhere.

Also pushes the guys in camp who thought they were already a lock for a spot.

Yeah, but you do get a PK unit which includes Rem Murray and Brent Sopel. Unfortunately I think you're still stuck with Cloutier in net.

Meh I woulda rather seen Owen Nolan come and fill a Dallas Drake type role, cant hurt but doubt he get signed

Please tell me that is a joke...Brunnstrom has a future. Nolan has a future nursing home picked out.

Last time we brought a guy like Nolan in (Drake) he was huge in a cup win. Nolan would be hungry because I'm pretty sure he has no cup and he could still be a third line scorer probably.

Brunnstrom has busted, hes not young anymore and wasnt even good with the Marlies last year. I watched him play against the griffins enough.

I would rather see Connor make the team

26 is young enough that he could improve.

Nope, he's done. At least according to LGW logic. See: Filppula, Valtteri and Hudler, Jiri for more on the subject.

Don't forget to include Jonathan Ericsson into the mix

Even if Brunnstrom shows he can play on the Wings, he's still going to have an insanely tough time getting ice time. The Wings coaching staff doesnt give ice time based on what if. They make their players earn their ice time over time. Just look at Hudler...he leaves the team and comes back and finds himself on the 3rd and 4th line. Hudler's style of play is made for a top 6 spot....or just look at Leino for that matter... But Babcock makes his players earn their keep, which is the way is should be everywhere...nobody is given anything in this organization, which is why this team has always been so accountable....

I love what Holland has done this off-season on all accounts. Short of a potential over-payment for Ericsson (it still needs to be determined by his play and with a new D coach, he could very well grow into that contract), this off-season has been spectacular, he added depth and competition, which can only lead to players working harder and set the team up to re-sign all of our players next season, PLUS be a potential REAL player for someone like Shea Weber at the deadline (even though that could not have been anticipated at the time)

In Holland We Trust.
