Fasth comes from a little better league and has big credentials while coming over. I know Brunner has been good but Fasth has a WC MVP to his name and a couple of Swedish goaltenders of the year. Those weight a little more than leading the NLA probably for most. He also has started 8-0 with sparkling numbers on top of that.

It could have an impact, but I would use his as leverage to why Brunner shouldn't get more than 2.5 so it could be good for us.
