It will indeed affect Brunnstrom's decision.

Nonis was reportedly a pretty big factor in Brunnstrom's decision because he had apparently agreed to let him play with the Sedins and give him top 6 minutes. Now that Nonis is fired, well... it's been said Brunnstrom and his agent are reconsidering. Not sure if he'll sign in Vancouver now.

Anyway, regarding the contract, from what I understand that 2 million would be including all the bonuses. He would have a standard entry-level contract. He would also be given a two-way deal. So for any team, it's not that much of a risk; if he hits all his bonuses, then he's worth his contract; if he flops, then he's still only making the entry-level and can be sent down to the AHL.
