I've had about enough of all this lockout talk. As best as I can tell given that I don't speak Swiss, Damien Brunner is tearing it up in the Swiss League. 5 goals and 7 assists in 9 games. Additionally he's got nearly twice as many shots on goal as the Omark (who leads the team in points, though with two more games than Brunner). Absolutely can't wait until Hank gets over there and suits up with him, I'm dying to see what Brunner's shot can do with Z creating space for him. His release is quick and should be very effective in the NHL, and his finishing ability seems (admittedly based on not much) to be better than Hudler's. Here's hoping all that success isn't do to shoddy Swiss defense. I've got high hopes for this guy!

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

So glad this kid just keeps getting better. DAMN the lock out! I'd love to see him over here right now, even if he only puts up half those points.

Joe Thornton has 8 points in 8 games about the same pace he scores at in the NHL for comparison.

What about Nash? Wasn't he playing there too? I know he had a shoulder injury but didn't hear anything after that night.

Eff Nash. Brunner's rippping it up. I hope him and Z tear the league to pieces and come back the the NHL at Winter Classic time and crush the Leafs and carry momentum with a Flip-Z-Brunner line right to the SCF. Any doubters left on Brunner's skill, look at his point comparison with Thornton who also has Nash compared to Omark on his team and see why the rest of us were excited about this signing. Brunner, Nyquist and Smith will rejuvenate the stale offense that is the Wings and take pressure off Dats and Z (and Flip now)......once the season starts that is.

Free darkmanx!

after watching the clips of him playing, that kid has a wicked wrister. even if he stands still ALA brett hull....he will score some goals for us.

come on season.

as long as he doesn't get creamed in the first 30 games....we may have a bona-fide scorer on our hands.
