Awesome!!! Hope he takes full advantage of this opportunity. Lots of potential and seems like the staff is willing to give him a full out shot to showcase it

I like this. Brunner convinced me in 2012 WC tournament but now he must show that he isn't just a big ice player.

It could technically be near a 4mil cap hit. But most likely between 525 and 975K with little or no signing bonus.

Jurco is NOWHERE near being brought up. Tatar is several spots ahead of him at this point.

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'd be nice if one of these types of signings worked out for the Wings.
