In Topic: Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

25 June 2012 - 04:18 PM

Mark Streit was 28 when he came to the NHL. Like Brunner, he was the best swiss player in the swiss league at that time. Like Brunner, his lack of size and weight were criticized. But like Brunner, he made his reputation in the swiss league for his speed, his skills, his intelligence of play and his powerful wristshot.
Looking at what Mark Streit has done in the NHL makes me positive for Brunner to find his way to emerge as a regular NHLer. He's not the next Ovechkin or Stamkos, but I'm sure he can hit the 25 goal mark with a good playmaker centering him.

I'm a swiss hockey enthusiast and a big red wings fan, so I can say, that today is a great day for me. One of my compatriots is signing to Detroit!

All I can say is that Brunner was last year's MVP in a league where former NHL players also played. Ok, he's not big and strong, but he has a speed, skill and a hell of a wrist shot!
