I don't see how a legitimate top six forward isn't a need for the Red Wings, it has been for the past couple years. See the 2011-2012 playoffs and Babcock asking for one every year they have been bounced out of the playoffs.

Unless you have Brunner penciled into the top six. While he's doing great in Europe with Zetterberg, and I'm excited to see what he can do here, I'm not going to hold my breath that he's going to come into the North American game and be a PPG player. He's not going to be able to cut to the middle like he can in Europe.
