That's what it looks like. But then you end up in a thread from Swedish posters that actually see him play, and this from a respected Swedish poster:

"I am amazed with all the Brunnström hype. The hype here in Sweden is nowhere near what I have been reading here and seen in NA based articled/magazines. He is good, he is talented and a latebloomer. But he is IMO not even close to being among the top forwards in the elite league."

Saw some You Tube moments from him, and it looks great but we did see some YouTube moments from Josef Balej and even Janne Lahti where he did look great as well. Good prospect, but future NHL star....let's just wait a little. Some team want to give him a NHL contract with a guaranteed spot? Go ahead, we'll see if it was a good decision.

As far as Lahti is concerned, I'm pretty surprised since we might lose more bodies in the summer, making room for a guy like him. I guess he was amongst the ones we are going to lose....
