Wandell, who is coming off ACL surgery, looked pretty good. I didn’t get a chance to talk to him because he was running late for an appointment with the doctor. I’ll talk to him next week and get a status report.
I talked a little with Brunnstrom as well. Last year was obviously a rough one for Brunnstrom, but he looks at it as a learning experience, is staying positive and wants to prove that he can be a good NHL player.
“Last year was a disappointment for me,” Brunnstrom said. “You always want to play well, be part of a team and help the team win games. I am going to work hard and try to do better than last year.”
Locker room shuffle
I noticed today that they moved some of the players around in the locker room out in Frisco. Stephane Robidas is now in Mike Modano’s old spot, which is between Steve Ott and Matt Niskanen. It’s the spot dead ahead as you walk in the door to the room.
Loui Eriksson, who had been sitting in one of the corner areas with some of the younger players and Toby Petersen, has moved across the room and is now located next to Brad Richards.
