It's good that he's willing to tune up in GR>

But I think Jaster and other are reading this like, he's somehow different than Ryno and Axelsson et al. I don't think there's much indication that is true
Seems clear he is different. Ryno and Axelsson were Wings draft picks and were kids the Wings wanted to play in GR. They grudgingly gave it a dozen games then ran off. Brunner is 26, came out of nowhere and signed a contract, and has indicated that he'll play in GR this year. As in, the whole year. Whether there is a lockout or not isn't relevant; he can still choose to play in Europe. I sure don't get the impression that he's going to give it 15 games and then head back to Zug-land. Do you?
