Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Heika a the Dallas Stars Blog,
Les Jackson is all about trust and patience, and that strategy will probably be tested to its utmost by Fabian Brunnstrom.
The 23-year-old free agent from Sweden has a ton of potential, but he is a late bloomer and nobody is sure whether or not he can turn that potential into NHL scoring….
Barring a disaster, Brunnstrom will make the Stars out of camp and will take a regular shift with Mike Ribeiro, Brad Richards or Mike Modano. He’s a natural left wing, but he can play right wing, and that should help Dave Tippett find the right place for him. But the bottom line is Jackson will push to keep Brunnstrom in the lineup and also push for him to get important minutes.
