Fabin is the last man standing.

Supposedly it is from Ken Holland in person... Maybe it is premature as TSN hasn't weighed in...

per Darren Dreger
$600,000 (NHL) over $105,000 (AHL) for Brunnstrom on 1 year deal with Red Wings.

Sidenote, Johnson has been let go.

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.

It was probably (figuratively) a done deal when Mursak got injured. I doubt he gets sent to GR as most would imagine he wouldn't clear waivers.

Good for him.

He needs to come to work every day and give a 100%. He has the skill, size and tools to help this team, it's all up to him.

Looking forward to seeing him become the next reclamation player that helps the team win a cup :thumbup:

If Wings at some point of the season have to waive one of their forwards it means that everyone's healthy. That would be quite something.

Well, healthy enough not to be on the IR. But yeah, you're right.

I think they see the potential in Brunnstrom and unless he busts I dont think they'd waive him to the A at any point this year really.

Good for him. I was really impressed with his preseason and his hard work attitude (at least as much as a fan can tell what a player's attitude really is). It's good to see he's earned a second NHL chance for himself.

Good for him. It seems like he really came into camp prepared, I'm excited to see him play - especially since I haven't seen any preseason games and he wasn't at the Red and White game.

Him and Nyquist were probably the two most impressive players that I noticed at camp. And it's really a no-loss situation. If he plays great then the Wings got a great deal and if he tanks then waive him and ship him off to GR or let someone else deal with him if they want to claim him. :thumbup:

Fantastic news, he looked like all kinds of determined this preseason and definitely earned it... just learning from the guys in that locker room, this could end up being one of the steals we look back on in awe... as long as he keeps working hard and stays determined, the sky is the limit!

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

I would like to see Johnson end up in GR...

I think he would help them become a more complete team.

Is it possible to send Mursak down for a rehab assignment? I know there are rules for that... I am not quite sure what they are though.

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.

NHL clubs can send players down to the AHL for conditioning stints for up to 14 days with player approval.

Very nice!

At 600k, this is pretty much a no risk situation. I was thinking it would be more like 800k, so this could turn out to be a great steal.

Now lets hope he continues to work hard and try to earn a spot and minutes. I think he needs to bulk up a little and work on his D game a tad.

I have high hopes for him now!

I would send him down for the full period and hope to trade Hudler or Miller during that period. I would much rather keep Miller though.

When Mursak comes off IR, he will almost certainly be assigned to GR for a conditioning stint. Up to two weeks. It will be mid to late January before we see Mursak skating for Detroit in a game. A little more than half the season. So let's see what happens with Bruno, Emmerton, Miller, Abby, Eaves, and Homer.

Would be terribly ironic if Brunnstrom ends up getting a regular job here.

Good on him. Hope he works out.
