Some players transition. Others don't.
Brunstrom was an undrafted player who scored 9 goals in 54 games in the SEL at the age of 22 before crossing the pond.
Nail Yakupov was a 16 year old who broke Steven Stamkos' Sarnia goal scoring record. On NORTH AMERICAN ICE!!!!
Nail Yakupov was an 18 year old first overall pick.
Nail Yakupov has scored 10 goals in 14 KHL games, a higher rate than Ovechkin, Malkin, Kovalchuk and almost everyone else in the league.
Don't get me started on Schultz vs. Brunnstrom.
Brunnstrom was and is garbage. Not good enough to hold either of these guys jocks. Don't mention him again, its embarassing.
