Introducing Snap Shots from!

Hello NHL Business Blog Readers!

In my never ending quest to ensure that you have the best possible experience on my site, I decided to install a nice little tool called Snap Shots. It enhances links with visual previews of the destination sites, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, display inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more.

Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you "look ahead," before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.

Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, concerns or anything else you would like to share with me, fire up an email and contact me at:!

Fabian Brunnstrom Tours NHL Cities

The best player in the world not playing in the NHL, Fabian Brunnstrom, is touring NHL cities in hopes of picking a team to sign with. According to reports, it seems as if he has narrowed his choices to Dallas, Detroit and Montreal. There were a number of teams interested in his services including the Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks, Philadelphia Flyers, Anaheim Ducks and reportedly another 12 other NHL teams.

The situation has essentially turned into a recruitment process (much like how high school athletes are recruited by colleges) because Brunnstrom can only sign a maximum entry level contract since he has never been drafted into the NHL and is only 23. All he has to do, is pick the team and system which will be the best fit.

If you're asking me, he's wrong to pick those teams. They're all very deep, with an abundance of young talented players. They may be winners, but he may have a hard time cracking the lineup unless he can consistently be a force every night. I haven't heard that much about him, so he may be that type of player. Considering how many teams are interested in him, it may work out. I also wonder whether he and his agent JP Barry will ask the teams to commit to playing him a certain amount of time. I wouldn't make any promises if I was a GM, but when bidding gets this competitive, a player can get things out of management that they normally wouldn't.
