Today the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Fabian Brunstrom in a low level deal, significant enough that my Leaf fan buddy decided it worthy enough to text me about. Great, you got a decent AHLer. The guy was over-hyped based on some YouTube videos and Dallas made a poor decision in overspending to acquire him by free agency. Fabio as I like to call him, was pumped up more than he was worth and he was signed to more than he was worth. He is not an NHL calibre player. The Leafs are unlikely to get any meaningful contribution from this guy. Nonis got his rocks off as someone involved in the initial over-hype sweepstakes, but this player will never have his name on the Stanley Cup.
