15% of his goals came in his first game. What more can you say about that? One hit wonder.
Yea I know the story. I just mean their situations are completely different, so it's weird to compare them. Also, I don't know if Brunnström had any other offers on the table than Detroits, so would've he been "KHL-bound" if the Wings didn't give him a chance?
