Brunnstrom waived: our Mueller replacement is here

Fabian Brunnstrom has been waived by the Dallas Stars.  Brunnstrom has had a very uneven start to his NHL career.  He had that hat trick early on as a rookie, and a respectable 17 goals in 55 games playing mostly in the top 6.  Then, after the emergence of the Dallas young guns like Benn and Neal, Brunnstrom ended up playing in the bottom 6, where he was simply awful.  He's been completely mis-used by Dallas, imo.

Brunnstrom has good size at 6'2" 212, though he's not a physical player, and he's quite fast with a good shot, good passing, and excellent puck skills.  He plays either wing (as a RH shot).

Ladies and gents, this is our Mueller replacement right here.  He's far from a sure thing, but there's no reason we shouldn't pick him up and try him on Duchene's wing.  He's got the speed and skills to play there, which would allow Jones, Yip, or Galiardi to move down and solidify our third.  This is the skilled depth we need.  

Make it happen Sherman!
