I am so happy for Brunnstrom. I hoe he makes some noise.

a little off subject, it's past noon, have we heard if any of our waived guys cleared or were claimed? Sorry if this is in a different thread, I couldn't find anything on it...

Saw Joey Mac, McCollum, and another Griffin I didn't recognize at the bar last night. MacDonald looked less than thrilled.

What did he expect? Even after they re-signed him, all Holland talked about was getting a back up. Maybe he expected to be claimed?

He was staying with Zetterberg but then because Emma was coming back into town Mr. Bruno had to leave and move in with Jonte for the time being.

For what its worth, MacDonald is pretty solid. He helped us with many games last year and even this year he looked pretty solid.

Adding a little bit here....
Bruno's number for the season will be 76, short of 96 this what he was allowed to wear.
If 15 was good 76 better be 5 times better....plus 1.

My God....

I thought the point of the two way deal was he could play in GR without being waived?


Negative young Padawan. To be waiver exempt it's all about age and games played and number of seasons. It's quite messy to say the least. The difference between one way and two way is how much you get paid in the minors.

Hopefully he won't score a hat trick in his first game.

I actually liked him wearing #15, shame he changed. Hopefully the change doesn't mean a change of work ethic.

I thought Nyquist looked more talented than Brunnstorm, but Brunnstorm has got the size and if he can clog up the front of the net he's shown he's got the hands to deflect shots in all day. Great finisher. Nyquist is gonna get more experience in the AHL then step up and burn it up. Lots of young talent in the preseason though, Brunnstorm is just the tip of the new wave gonna be coming in. Things look good.

Holmstrom started his career wearing 15 and switched to a higher number ending in 6, and is Swedish... coincidence? I think not! :ph34r:

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

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Babcock says...

"I think Brunner's a guy who eventually will be able to challenge for a top-six (forward) spot. I really believe that," Babcock said. "We understand it's a long year. We're about winning today and that's our focus.

"He's in a tough spot, but I'm not concerned about it. I talked to him a number of times. He's getting better, working hard. He'll get in a game."



Perhaps more importantly, Brunnstrom says...

Brunnstrom said he can't complain. He knew what he was up against when he joined the Red Wings on a tryout in training camp.

"This is the best group of forwards in the whole NHL," Brunnstrom said. "It's going to take a lot of work (to get in the lineup), but it's a lot of fun to hear that (he has top-six potential)."

The Red Wings have five days off before their next game, Friday at home against Columbus. All Brunnstrom can do is work hard in practice and bide his time.

"Of course I want to play, but the last two years have been so miserable and now I feel good," Brunnstrom said. "I'm on a great team with great guys. I feel like I'm (getting) better every day just by practicing with these guys. I'm having a lot of fun. Next step is to play some games."



Best quote from Brunner so far:

"It's been a tough two years for me; at times it wasn't as fun as it was before," Brunnstrom said. "But here, I wake up every morning and feel like 'Wow, it's a great day for hockey.'"

Sounds like his attitude has genuinely improved. Usually when athletes are just being told what to say they don't say as much as Brunnstrom has over the past month or so. I think he's going to do well here as a team player.

Still a fair way away, a lot will happen, but I wonder who gets waived/traded when Mursak returns.

That is awesome for brunnstrom to have that feeling back and I'm also happy to hear Babs say he thinks he'll challenge for a top six at some point. This was my feeling as well when he got the try out, hopefully he get's out there soon time.

Let's hope that if he does turn into a top-six forward, that he's still with the Wings when it happens.

Mabye Fabs should have played last night. Oh well he get his shots at it. Question is who does get waived or traded when Mursak returns?
