Fabian wants to highlight in Detroit

Rögle Fans can stop hoping. Fabian Brunnstrom gets the chance to try their wings in Detroit for another season. "They want me back," he says.

Hockey. Jonstorp Bördige Fabian Brunnstrom will meet and shake hands with a smile. The likeable 27-year-old is back in their home environment after a first season with his dream team, the Detroit Red Wings, who had been intense in several ways.
Now, everything that he returns to the Swedish team in a few months.
- I had meeting with the coaches and the club's big shot after the season. They said they want me back and that there is a place for me in the Red Wings. Now it's up to me to deserve it, said Brunnstrom.
- I was a little surprised, considering how last season looked like, but it appears that management really believes in me.

Much has changed in the last year. Brunnstrom spent last summer in the dark, hoping for an NHL offer. After a successful training camp, he received a contract with Detroit, where it only got five games.
- I sat on the bench in the first matches and came out of the match tempo. Then once I got to play and would show me the whole team did a really bad game and lost 7-1 against Washington. It feels like it did mark on my season - it was wrong from the beginning.
Instead of living in the NHL came Brunnstrom in the backyard in the minor league AHL, while his wife Sandy was heavily pregnant with the couple's first child.
- The pregnancy was still a concern for me while I put on my injuries. Sometimes you're away for a road trip in two weeks in the AHL schedule is worse and tougher than in the NHL. There are a lot of time in airports and long bus trips.
- Now I'm heading over to play in the NHL, not otherwise, said Brunnstrom.

To succeed in a place he's changed a little in summer lay-up. Last year, this was an almost brutal Russian training.
- Everything has its time. I learn more about what my body needs and have a better idea now. I will practice less ambitious, but if it gets the same number of passes remains to be seen.
Brunnstrom has logged four seasons in North America, but feels he has more to give the world's best league.
- I see it as a chance to make another attempt to beat me into the Red Wings. Had it been another team that wanted me back, I thought maybe different. It makes me a better player all the time, but may not really possible to view it. I need a bit of planning and post-in for a while.

Brunnstrom r slurp up a last sip of juice, and says that the family have a wonderful time in Detroit. Soon he'll sign a two-way contract (which would mean different salaries in the NHL and AHL), which extends over next season.
But first he will have a holiday at home with his son Alexander, learning about the family and friends.
- At home I have another free and without obligation. Detroit is a little on the actual contract writing, they are probably at the World Championships the whole gang and I have a feeling that there might be a little bit. Then it is probably just for writing, I can trust what they say even if it can turn quickly in this business.
This means that Rögle supporters can stop hoping for Wells' s signature before the comeback in the top division.
- I've talked a bit with Rögle and know that they are interested. But I'm set to play for Detroit and until the door is closed, I focus on it, said Brunnstrom.

good to see his head is still with making this team. cant complain about a 2-way deal either. if he sucks he stays in GR, and if hes good he could be part of the future.

i personally put alot of stock in the "hometown" and "family lives here" reasons. just think, most of us being metro-detroiters would play for the wings no matter what if we made the NHL. Thats what they did. Just childhood dreams coming to fruition.

Don Cherry Twitter:

When you sign a college guy he's usually 23 or 24 yrs old so his game won't improve. What you see is what you get. So you must be carefull...

He cannot be compared to an 18 year old coming out of the CHL as they still have lots of room to learn and grow

Doesnt sound like hes too sold on this guy

I also dont really understand all the fuss. In no way are we in bad shape...not just yet.

#2310388 Steve Ott - anyone interested in getting him?

He's pretty good at faceoffs too isnt he??

#2308155 Bobby Ryan

Posted by Din758 on 19 June 2012 - 09:57 PM

Yes I do, I like him because he is exactly what the Wings need and can be had for a bargain right now. Because of his production this year and the fact that he and Hitchcock don't get along he would be a bargain in a trade and against the cap for a 30 goal scoring power forward which is exactly what he is.
If he got as much ice-time as Ryan playing with Getzlaf and Perry, I have no doubt he would have scored as much.

You mean the Stewart that just got an extension in stl?

more parise buzz..


Lou Nanne said on The Sports Show that he's been told by Wild's highest authority that team will offer Parise more than any club in NHL.

Nanne: "Before last weekend, I didn't think Wild would be able to sign Zach. Now, I think they are going to get him.''

hot off the wings twitter, not sure if it really applies here..

The Red Wings have signed Teemu Pulkkinen to a three-year entry level contract. He was a 4th round pick (111th overall) in the 2010 Draft.
