Fabian Brunnstrom demoted to the minors

Sean Avery wasn't the only free agent bust for the Dallas Stars. l'm guessing the losers in the Brunnstrom sweepstakes (Detroit, Toronto, Vancouver) are likely feeling better these days. He was just about the hotest sought after free agent. He makes $2.225-million, is nearly 24 years old and isn't even close to being an NHL-calibre player.

Athough Brunnstrom is ranked tied for seventh among first-year players in goals (10) he is also one of the weakest defensive players in the league. He is literally clueless in his own end.

Can you imagine this guy in the hands of Ron Wilson? It wouldn't be pretty.
