That's what I'm saying.

Get him to understand that hes here to show he deserves to be moved up when we lose alfredsson next year, then he can have the minutes. Unless he doesn't pan out, in which case trade him.

It just makes me wonder what teams actually threw at him, and why he's waiting.

His demands lost him his roster spot and cap space to Alfredsson. Barring some other teams deciding they're really interested in our trash, neither one will be opening up. His Detroit days are over, at least for now.

I still do doubt that it will happen.

But I was just throwing it out there since he apparently hasn't been swept off his feet so far.

And though both are unlikely, this would be easier to pull off, and smarter then bringing back danny clearly.

Yep.

I get the feeling his agent was like "Dames, baby, you are the KING of the Swiss league! I can get you anything you want! Lets ask for 5 years at $4mil per. You are the Swiss league golden boy, its a shoe in!"

And then he hit the open market, and all the NHL teams just laughed at how ridiculous his asking price was...

Signings have quieted down across the board. He'll find himself an NHL team willing to give him what he wants before the start of camp, it just won't be the Wings.

Exactly. Hopefully there still aren't people out there holding onto hope that he'll re-sign. It's 100% for sure not happening. There isn't even a slight chance. Even if we do pull off a trade to dump some salary (doesn't seem likely at this point) Kenny will use that to sign No Knees Washed Up Dan Cleary, not Brunner. He would be a Red Wing right now if he would've lowered his asking price a little, and accepted a bottom 6 role with the potential to EARN a top 6 role, not just be handed the spot free and clear.

And with all the injuries and Babcocks musical line combos he would end up spending plenty of time in the top six throughout the season anyway.

I remember getting a funny feeling watching his locker room exit interview at the end of the season that he had already made up his mind to test the free-agent market. Anyone else see that little interview and get the same feeling?

source?

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Lamiorello say it at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Bueller?

Do you have a source to prove that you heard it?

Most people in real life understand that "I heard..." means that you heard it in passing and that it should be taken with a grain of salt (or perhaps a boulder thereof), but this is the internet; if you claim to exist, they want your birth certificate.

I know, right. Funny thing is I know 2 guys who are very well known in the NHL (one is a color guy and one is an assistant coach), but I didnt hear it from either of them. I heard it through a friend who lives in Jersey and works in a law office. Go figure.

Several people have asked for a source and you just ignore them. Now you've "heard" it. I "heard yzerman and lids are coming out of retirement and will be back this year. No source I just "heard" it

If you dont trust me, Im ok with that. Im not seeking approval from you.

Brunner simply just isnt worth what he wants.

It's not about seeking approval.

If you make a claim like that about someone's contract, there needs to be a some source so people can evaluate the statement. Otherwise the site will be awash in people making up whatever they want about players.

At least now that you admitted "you heard it" people can better decide how likely it is to be true. In the future if you make claims like this without any reference to where you got the info, it will be deleted.
