He's. But a guy who wants top 6 minutes right away just because he's doing good in Sweden... I don't really want.
He's not gonna get Top 6Minutes the whole season if he doesn't perform well, and that goes for any team.
If he outshines Higgins, Lats, A.Kost or S.Kost..than I don't see why it would be a problem.
If he's asking for Top6 Minutes, than obviously its because he thinks he's good for it. So, on any team, if he doesn't perform well after 5-10Games, he wont be having that Top6 Minutes.
Hyped up to be the best free agent in Europe, I don't think you have the chance of just passing it up because he's asking for Top 6 Minutes. What happens if he does become the next Alfie?..how dumb would one be to say ''he was asking for Top 6Minutes at the time. Even with all the hype around him, we couldnt take that risk''
Especially with Koivu-Kovalev coming to an end of contract very soon.
if we get him I won't be too excited, but it couldn't hurt to add more skill. I think he could be a good replacement for Higgins on the 2nd line. Assuming we get him, and let Ryder leave we could look like this at the start of next year
I know (well according to the hype) it's just that some people were inserting Lathi in their mock lineup before the season while he was still unproven and i'm seeing the same thing with Brunnstrom. I know that apparently he has much more potential than Lathi but he's still unproven nonetheless.
That said i personally know jack**** about the guy and wouldn't be opposed to sign him to a tryout contract but i sure as hell wouldn't enter a bidding war for him.
