I just want to know if the hype on this guy is legit. Can a guy put up these numbers in Europe and then step over and do the same in the NHL?
to answer your question simply... yes. Look at Z's stats before he came to detroit and his first 2 years here, and his stats were not nearly as great as Brunners are.
98-99 TMRA IK-Sweden -2 37games 15 g 13a 28points
99-00 " " 32 games 20g 14a 34 points
2000-01 TMRA IK-Sweden 47 Games 15g 31a 46 points

02-03 Red Wings 79 games 22g 22a 44 points
03-04 Red wings 68 games 15g 28a 43 points
Let's look at Brunners stats over the past 3 years
2010-2011 EV Zug Swiss 40 games 19g 27a 46 points
2011-2012 EV Zug Swiss 45 games 24g 36a 60 points
2012-2013 EV Zug Swiss 33 games 25g 32a 57 points
Edit: Mod please delete my prior post it came up all screwed up, and I didn't think it actually posted
