Via Red Wings Front,
Now Brunnstrom, 27, may be running into the wrong end of the numbers game with the Wings.
“We haven’t written him off, but we’ve got a couple of things in play,” Wings general manager Ken Holland said.
The numbers concern is the Wings’ 50-man roster limit and the fact they possibly may look to still add a different type of forward or two to Grand Rapids.
Detroit currently has 46 players under contract. That doesn’t include restricted free agents Kyle Quincey and Justin Abdelkader, both of whom will be signed sometime this offseason.
“We want to explore what’s out there,” Holland said. “I think Brunnstrom is a good player, but we need leadership, toughness down there. We’re exploring the market.”
