However, If we look at the percentage of successfull attempts (effectiveness?):
Jonathan Ericsson 0.250 (1/4)
Todd Bertuzzi 0.222 (2/9)
Ian White 0.200 (1/5)
Brian Lashoff 0.200 (1/5)
Pavel Datsyuk 0.200 (3/15)
Henrik Zetterberg 0.147 (5/34)
Damien Brunner 0.138 (4/29)
Otherwise we have Brunner as #2 for goals and shots....not that bad.
Brunner has scored goals. But his play, otherwise, has not been something you notice.
He needs to be more involved on the play.
You have three guys who like to shoot the puck on one line and ZERO guys who like to shoot the puck on the other.
Trading Flip for Brunner might help the Z line's defensive issues and give Datsyuk the right-handed shooter he hasn't had since Hull/Shanahan.
In those first two games with the Z-D-Brunner line, Brunner had a couple really good even strength chances.
