I'm still convinced that transitioning to the NA game is going to be a challenge for Brunner, and he could fail, but I heard a tidbit from my contact at the Joe.... Basically, the Wings front office (in addition to Babcock, whom we already know about) has serious expectations for this guy. Bigger than they did with Leino or Brunnstrom. The way he said it, I'm not as convinced that Brunner will start the year in GR as I was. In which case we really would have 16 rostered forwards once Abdelkader signs (and assuming Homer retires). Something will have to give....
