I think he could be pretty good if he gets one season to get used to the new culture both on and off the ice. So the Wings won't probably get him because some team will offer him a roster spot for next season.
Talk to Dallas fans about Brunnstrom and you'll get the real story to his time there. The guy is, flat out, a liability with the puck. For every nice play he makes, you'll have 3 turnovers. NHL defenders eat him alive. Nobody is denying his skill with the puck, but he's not quick enough or strong enough to play his brand of game in the NHL.

15% of his goals came in his first game. What more can you say about that? One hit wonder.
