Put him in Grand Rapids for this year where he can get top-6 minutes and continue to work on his consistency and work ethic. If he continues on the pace he's at, there will certainly be room for him on the Red Wing roster next year, and not as a grinder.

He's not waiver-exempt.

You show me Brunnstrom parking his ass in front of the paint, warding off defencemen, and being able to put stick/body part to puck and deflect it through the smallest of openings, and I will show you Homer's Replacement.


In his time in Dallas, he didn't use his size or strength much. I need to be shown differently in the regular season to be a believer.

If he keeps working as hard as he did in TC, I see no problem with him playing in Grand Rapids.

He looks like he is gonna earn a contract, but he won't start the season up here because of Jiri "Choke" Hudler...

Can someone explain his waiver situation? I've heard different things so far.

If we sign him to a 2-way contract, do we risk losing him on waivers?

You really think someone will put a claim on him? He was a FA and didn't even get any bites, plus, they can designate him before the season starts and he won't have to clear (what is it, 7 or 10 days?) So, give him a contract and designate him before Oct and we're clear... that is, if he doesn't flat win the 14th roster spot... Babs seems pretty impressed with him...

1 way or 2 way, just dictates salary base, not waiver status... that is dictated by age, years in the league, games played... etc... capgeek has a pretty good waiver exemption calculator to clarify...

And according to that he is not exempt, also wiki. If the Wings sign him but they end up wanting him to go to GR for a year I think they will lose him.

Obviously with Mursak's injury there is an extra spot open... does Brunnstrom get it?

I was at the game last night, and other than Lidstrom, I thought Fabian was the best player on the ice. He might not have scored, but he was flying out there, making good and smart plays, providing scoring chances, excellent back checking and so on. There was not 1 shift where he was bad. I think he is playing the perfect game right now to get on the Wings and be a part of Babcock's system because he has been really good in every pre-season game he has played so far and I think has earned a spot on the actual Wings roster. If Babs is intent on playing Pavs and Hank on separate lines, I think Fabian becoming a Wing would provide us with a very good set of lines:

Hudler- Datsyuk- Brunnstrom
Franzen- Zetterberg- Filpula
Cleary- Abdelkator- Bertuzzi
Homer- Helm- Eaves

Fabian and Hudler have been really good together thus far and have good chemestry, and I think both of them could have great years playing with Pavs; that could turn into a really solid line for the Wings.

Wow, just what I was thinking everytime I hear the words "Hudler" and "Potential" in the same sentence or everytime he is placed on the top line... I'll stop talking crap about him when people stop saying he has the potential to be a first line sniper...

So for now, Brunnstrom over Hudler everyday of the week and twice on Sunday...

I never said he could be a first line sniper. I said a line with him, Fabian and Pavs could turn out to be a really good line. From what I have seen so far, Hudler and Fabian have played really really well together on the same line. Hudler seems much better along the boards this year and is making smarter plays, Fabian has been impressive at all ends of the rink, and Pavs is the best player in the world. Don't tell me that line would not have the potential to dazzle and be a very effective top line for us. I am not saying Hudler is going to score 40 goals; more like around 25. I think Fabian could have the potential to score 30 goals playing with Pavs and Pavs would score 30-35 goals if he stays healthy all year (which the hockey gods owe the Wings an injury free season). A top line, combining for around 90- 95 goals is a pretty damn good top line. Then you have to take into account the 2nd line and 3rd line... the Wings team would be very deep with goal production using these lines.

Sorry, I wasn't referring to you when I said that. But, that seems to be what a lot of folks say his "potential" is. First line sniper, and that is as much of a dead horse as I am hating on him. Funny thing is, he probably will never be traded or let go and he will never be a sniper, so in the end we will all be wrong! :lol: But I just love ragging on him....

Brunnstrom: AHL player trying to make any NHL roster.
Hudler: proven NHL player working hard on having a better year because he is disappointed with last season.

You can have Brunnstrom. I'm sure you'll enjoy him. Especially twice on Sunday.
