Whether that is with Manitoba or Vancouver is yet to be known.
No, I am happy for him and hope he bring as much joy to what ever club he ends up with as he have brought us Färjestad fans this season. But I honestly think he should stay one more year in Sweden, get some more games for Tre Kronor and develop in a league better then the AHL. But if he where to play with the Sisters in Vancouver, sure, he will get points but doesnt all who play with them get those?

I wanted him to sign with Toronto, ofcourse but he is a nice kid and I wish him the best of luck.

well Vancouvers chances of signing Brunnstrom are unlikely now since the firing of GM Dave Nonis.

I don't believe that. Nonis wasn't the guy who found Brunnstrom in Sweden, it was Thomas Gradin.

Did I read he was 24th in the SEL in scoring?

Jeez, this guy on this site must be the equivalent of Ron Paul on youtube.

I believe 20 teams were bidding on Brunnstrom. Gradin likely made the phone call but Brunnstrom can't really be called a discovery at this point, can he? At the point the GM's become involved its about selling the opportunity, potential role/linemates, city, and of course the contract. If the opportunity is tarnished in the eyes of Brunnstom by a change in management then he may elect to go to option B rather than take a chance on the new GM/new vision.

The opportunity that Nonis, Gradin, Ohlund and others sold to Brunnstrom didn't evaporate because of Nonis's firing. This team is still as thin up front right now as it was this morning. Aquilini's major complaint other than not making the playoffs was the style of play the team played. You would think this would be good news for an offensive player like Brunnstrom if things are going to open up offensively around here.

I don't know. I'm not happy Nonis was fired, and if it throws a wrench into this signing, I'll be outraged. This was going to be a nice saving grace for an otherwise forgettable season, and now even this hangs in the balance.

He's the next Patrick Thoresen, minus the busted nuts IMO.

Do we really still have to call them women? We're talking about a top 5 playmaker in the league and an 85 point winger. That ''sisters'' ship sailed 4 years ago when they molded into star players.

I guess Canucks fan will be wondering:
Who's replacing Nonis?
Will Brunnstom sign?
What about AV?
And other obvious reasons.

woah... Brunnstrom might be skilled, but he's sooooo overhyped. Sergei Kostitsyn is much better anyways

Vancouver should focus on Kiril Koltsov coming back over. That kid has some nasty potential, especially in the PP controlling NHL.

He'd probably want $2.5+M per year for it to be worth leaving Russia. He's a very good offensive d-man though from all reports.

Agreed, another year in Europe isn't going to do anything. A year in the AHL is a step towards the NHL, another year in the SEL is standing still.

From the Vancouver Province article, there is news that Brunnstrom is taking a step back from choosing Vancouver and reevaluating his choice of teams again which includes: Toronto, Detroit, Anaheim and Philadelphia. Ken Holland states that he is very much in it.

He will probably sign with a team during the next few weeks, as his window of opportunity to enter the NHL ends in May. Consequently, the Canucks need the acquire a new general manager before his signing deadline and restart negotiations with the Swedish prospect all over again in order to have a chance to get him.

I'm pretty sure Tamby has the authority to sign him and will try to considering he was a part of negotiations beforehand. Whether he can or not is another question.

I would think that Brunnstrom may want to wait to see what direction the team is going in after hiring a new GM.
The new GM may want to clean house. If the Sedins, Ohlund are moved and Naslund doesnt come back plus Edler being moved for a veteran I would think that could change the nature of the team he wanted to sign with.

I´m pretty sure he would be over the moon to only get a chance in the NHL.
