Also stolen from the mainboard. Just when you think a leafs fan has a good point you take a closer look at his avatar and it looks like Miss Piggy on meth (I think) and he/she makes a statement like this:
I think I'd leave it to this board for opinions on Brunnstrom.
lolz.. i'm not saying he's a genius... look at the grammar in the post i quoted... i only quoted to point out that it's easy to become enamored with "flashes" of talent (and hope), and to lose perspective of the team(or true production) as a whole.. i thought his post summed that up fairly well.
Interesting quote taken from the TSN website on the Brunnstrom signing. Good knowledge of the situation and pretty funny Crawford reference.
This is a low risk 'win-win' deal for both parties. Brunnstrom had no intention of playing in the minors, and the Stars have no intention of indefinitely wasting his skills on a 'checking line'. To be fair, he has been thrown into a maelstrom with changing management and coaching philosophies. Tippett wanted him to be more defensively responsible. Frankenhair wanted him to be more offensively aggressive. Now it's simply put up or shut up time.
