Z is much more of a playmaker since leaving Pavel. Either way I think the plan is to play Samuelsson and Brunner on the right in the top 6. So both are right handed shooting trigger guys. I think he will be fine with either guy although Pavel gives a lot more of those breakout passes for breakaways, so he might eventually win out with Brunner. I just think the lockout has probably been the best thing for Brunner. He is going to come over with high confidence having outscored a lot of NHL players, thinking he belongs and with the built in chemisty of playing with Z. If it ends in season he comes over and tears up the AHL for a week before training camp too in my opinion.

By the way as much as he seems to like playing with Z does anyone think he doesn't re-up with the Wings if the season wipes out, something we don't talk about a lot but I had wonder about when he first went back.
