I hope it's a great lesson for everybody who was putting him in the Habs lineup or even calling for almost being a phenom.
Can't wait to see that other phenom Brunnstrom now, and see how he'll fit in in a NHL organization.
C'mon, while some were putting him in the lineup, to be fair, were many people really calling him almost a phenom?
-Because of the CBA changes, signing older European UFAs will become a likelier occurence than before.
-Just looking at the miscommunication between Anton Stralman and the Leafs in attracting him to North America, we see the conflict between a club that wants to attract SEL etc... to NA at all costs and players that expect to play in the big league.
-People wondered why an older Scandinavian would take a big pay cut to come over just to play in the AHL. Could promises have been made by the organization? Was he just coming by his own volition to see what he could do in NA? It was never very clear.
