Great news! He deserved it.

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


Haha. Yeah, it sure would.

Good on him. Hope he works out.


Well he beat Johnson out for the "Play until Mursak gets back" contract. Now he's got a new one; he gets to spend the first half of the season competing with Emmerton and Miller for two roster spots.

Good for him!

He was great in the pre-season and from the repots I have heard/read he performed really well at camp. And for 600k you can't really complain. I just hope he earns his money and turns out to be a hell of steal for that price.

He actually signed a 2 way deal so if he goes down to the AHL, he will avoid having to pass through waivers. This is a great deal for both the Wings and Brunnstrom.

Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hudler, Goodbye!


Hey LeftWinger... just to let you know...

Brunnstrom has scored 19 goals and 40 points in 99 NHL games. Hudler scored 10 goals and 37 points in 73 games last season; basically 25% more in terms of points. Even if you take away Hudler's time with Datsyuk (4g-10a-14pt in 11gp) he would have 6g-17a-23pt in 62gp, a pace which would give him 10-27-37 in 99 games instead of 73.

In other words, a "horrible" season by Hudler's standards, minus the highly prolific 11 game stretch with Datsyuk, can be considered equivalent offensively with the best Brunnstrom has ever performed.

Sounds like Bruno could replace Hudler at something. But it's not scoring.

Wrong.

A one-way deal or two-way deal determines how much the player makes if he is not in the NHL. Contract status and waiver status are completely unrelated, although both can and do determine roster spots.

Still a good deal.

Oh, come on! A veteran like you making a rookie mistake. 2 way deal means only that his salary will be different in the AHL. He'll still have to pass through waivers.

He's in denial of the fact that Hudler is going to be playing on Datsyuk's line this season, after all of that bitching (and likely monitor screaming) he did at me about constantly suggesting that H/D/C be reunited.
