Best Swiss forward, Brunner received offers from: Wild, Habs and Detroit. It seems that Bab's is more than impressed by Brunner.

To me, he seems to be ready for NHL.

Right Hand Shoot and some Dats skills...

Part of the Lightning's summer to-do list is to find a top-six forward. That is why general manager Steve Yzerman, at the world championship in Helsinki, Finland, is keeping a close eye on Swiss forward Damien Brunner.

"Highly skilled and fast," Yzerman wrote Tuesday night in a text message, adding Tampa Bay isn't the only team interested in the 5-foot-11, 187-pound right-handed shot.

I would take Yzerman's word for it.

I'm all for it. These are pretty low-risk propositions. Brunnstrom could have been amazing, but he wasn't, so we dumped him in the AHL. Especially since he's a shooter, go for it, just don't hinge the success of the team on him.

He looks amazing, but then again, everyone does in highlight clips. And those defensemen looked pretty terrible, too. But if his first instinct is to shoot, we need him.

He really loves the stutter step to change the angle before he shoots.. Impressive how quickly he is able to do it.

This just in....Holland not interested in Parise. I'm joking, but seriously? It looks like Holland STILL refuses to change the makeup of this team, a makeup that has been waning and waning year after year. Sorry, just my opinion...

wouldn't mind this if it means another old guy is moving on in his place. Maybe Cleary or a trade involving franzen or something. The top 6 is getting SOOOO crowded if we get him and possibly parise and nyquist up full time. Although we could have a legitimate third scoring line soon. Just need to say bye to homer and probs cleary, too bad we are stuck with bert.

What I don't understand is....are teams allowed to make offers after the trade deadline during the playoffs to players so long as they are not in the league or were under contract by another team?

Yes, I think so. As long as the player is outside of the league after the end of the NHL season he can be signed.

I wonder how much Brunner would cost? Do they come in on entry level contracts? I forget what Brunnstrom and Leino came in on.

hudler's replacement

that's about the only way I could get excited about him.

I'm not really a grit slappy, but I am getting weary of the Wings being excited about a player, then seeing that he's under 6' and 185 lbs.

That being said, it looks like he has a great shot and isn't afraid to use it. The Wings could use more of that. But they can also use players who are big, strong, and willing to go to the tough areas of the ice and score ugly goals.

hudler's replacement

although I would love to see ANYTHING replace Hudler, but isn't that what Parise is supposed to be? I really don't understand all this, offer this guy and contract, probably re-signing Holmstrom gonna go hard after Parise....Nyquist here full time. Emmerton and Mursak have ZERO options to GR, just where is Holland going to put all these forwards? Not to mention wanting Lidstrom and Suter and Smith here permanently. There is only room for 23 players, maybe Holland is just getting back up plans or maybe he plans on getting rid of some players from last season. Personally, I'd rather keep Miller and Eaves over Bertuzzi and Cleary...Maybe Eaves is done? I just have a weird feeling that a ton of us fans are going to be disappointed come July 2nd when Holland doesn't score the two players he absolutely HAS to get to turn this team back in the right direction...

My birthday is July 2nd, Holland told me he was getting Parise as a present and he's going to let me touch the cup next summer.

hudler's replacement

I was hoping Holland was going to pick Semin as Hudlers replacement and Brunner as Holmstroms replacement, as well as landing Parise and Suter of course. :rolleyes:

So what happens when Holland's pick-ups are Brunner & Justin Schultz instead of Parise & Suter? Human sacrifice, dogs & cats living together...mass hysteria?
