Ullstrom is an unproven commodity who appears to currently be a 4th line player. The sharks need a solid proven 3rd line contributor, hence the interest in Bailey.
I agree, that we don't know what kind of NHL scorer Ullstrom will be.
Ullstrom looked good on the NYI 3rd line, in his half a season.

Maybe it's best to re-visit Braun for Ullstrom in 1-2 yrs.
