No big loss. Obviously Stefanovich's head didn't come around to play in NA. Too bad because he looked like he had skill.

A body that may never play for the Leafs or Marlies traded for a body that will play for the Marlies is a good trade, IMO.

10 goals from Brun.... is better than 0 goals from Stefanovich.

I'd ask you again if you're serious but amazingly enough you are, lol. So I guess minor compliments in a Prospect tracker is your idea of massive hype, whatever bro. By that definition every single player who signed a contract since HF came on the internet has been the recipient of massive hype, again whatever bro.

Anybody else find it odd, or at least noteworthy that Brunnstrom and Gustavsson were teammates at Farjestads? Not sure how close they are, if at all, but I wonder if bringing those two together in Toronto (even if Brunnstrom plays for the Marlies) may have something to do with making both feel more comfortable. Probably reading too much into that.

Brunnstrom really did have a bit of a tough go of things in Dallas. His defensive game has always been lackluster but there were times, especially late in his rookie season where he looked like a legitimate NHL scorer. There is definite potential in this deal for Toronto. If he gets a chance at the NHL level up there I think more people will start to see what scouts saw in the guy before he came over. He's not an absolute bust as some are saying; there are some specific flaws in his game and specific circumstances in Dallas that led to his being expendable.

Burke on LeafsTV:

Brunnstrom will help out the Marlies, also seen as possible callup.

Remember the post of mine you quoted? About something going over your head? Its because the original post was sarcastic about Leafs not hyping Stef. Any Leafs fan whos been on the site for over a year knows that Stef got a ton of hype last year in junior.

But go on, continue proven a sarcastic point right.

Hopefully the media doesn't get to him, if he ever does make the big club.

Leafs win this one. I watched Stefanovic plenty in the Q and that guy is going NOWHERE. Dallas would have been better off with a 7th but I guess they wanted to clear some dead salary.

That changed very quickly. Not sure if he's actually gone but he wanted to leave their farm to play in the KHL

Good deal for both sides IMO Dallas clears dead weight and frees up valuable cap space and the leafs take a chance on a guy that hasn't lived up to his hype.

The thing for Dallas here is definitely the one-way contract for Brunnstrom as others have said. They were playing him $625,000 one-way to play in the minors. After Langenbrunner, the understanding is the creditors basically told Nieuwendyk moves have to be cost neutral.

By clearing that money off now, perhaps there's some real money available in a month at the deadline to bring in the D depth they will need - at a prorated cost - if they want to make a run.

As a bonus, they get someone who apparently has some skill but maybe not the desire who is playing in the KHL they don't have to pay a cent for whom they have NHL rights for for a few years. If he comes back to North America, maybe he turns into a nice surprise.

the way I see it is a guy, who's still young, has potential and shown some pizzazz... and then another guy who is happy in Russia, selected 2nd in the KHL and content with the second tier leagues. questionable work ethic and YET he imho has all the tools to be a Yashin like winger... might just be me.

overall it works for both teams, but as a purely "hockey" move, edge goes to the laffs.

Brunnstrom is at worst a quality AHLer, at best, another Swedish forward who takes a bit of time to come into his own but then becomes a quality top-6 NHLer.

Dallas sheds some salary and that's about it (anyone really think M.S comes back to N.A?)

I actually like this trade for Toronto but only if Brunnstrom is given a chance to play on the Leafs top 6. I have always been a fan of Brunnstrom and I hope he does well in Toronto and reaches his potential.

Brunnström is one of the laziest players I've ever met. Doubt Burke will like him and I was kind of surprised he traded for him. Was overhyped because of that hat-trick in his first game. Top-6 AHLer maybe but nothing more unless he starts working hard again.

The problem with this trade is the fact that I received two email notifications and it made the headline story on TSN.ca

Why did this receive such newsworthy status? It was a simple scrub-for-scrub deal.

People need to realize that a lot of the 'hype-machine' comes from Toronto media, not us fans.

You can thank every media outlet for scrambling to be the first to break any sort of news to gain relevance.

If he was traded to Columbus, things would've been quite different.

Such is the life in a hockey market.
