Brunnstrom was like a free 2nd or 3rd round draft pick though, that's why teams were all over him. The Dallas Stars and Nonis it seems were the only ones desperate enough to promise him top 6 ice time. If he was willing to pay his dues in the AHL, he may have worked out and may have had a better development curve, but promising top 6 ice time was a mistake in hindsight.
