Brunner Contract Talks

Emdog is a regular for 2 seasons now. He's our 4th line center.

Emmerton is a call up gap filler. Assuming helm is healthy he won't pass andersson or helm on the depth chart

Unless wings Trade Bert, Sammy, Tootoo, and Emerton, Brunner won't be back lol... he kind of screwed his chances when he asked for way to much.

Emdog makes him sound like a failed white rapper. Dumbest damn nickname I've ever heard. Emmerton is the reserve forward. Most reserves get plenty of games in. He does nothing really well outside of his work ethic. If they can't trade someone else it makes absolutely no sense to waive someone else and get stuck with a big cap hit when they can dump him penalty free. Right now he's their 7th best center behind Datsyuk Zetterberg Weiss Helm Andersson and Abdelkader. Before they got Weiss and Andersson established himself he was #5. Now do you see why I'd say that?

Who's to say he isn't a failed white rapper. :ninja:

I think you're confusing him with Roy's kid

Yah. I agree with you on almost all your points. Id even put Franzen in there as a better center option. Bottom line is that Emmerton fills the 10 spot (4th line center) better than anyone we've mentioned. No way those guys get demoted from our top 9. We had Fedorov, Yzerman, Larionov, Datsyuk, and Zetterberg ahead of Kris Draper at one point. Did Drapes get pushed to reserve? Nope. Know why? Cuz Drapes filled the 10 spot better than all those guys.

Brunner can f*** off at this point. Good riddance.

Yeah, who needs him and his goal scoring on a team that tied for 19th in "goals per game" last year. Good riddance indeed.

When is that, again?

Says the poster who constantly bewails the money we're paying to depth veterans.

Weiss and Alfredsson should help.

If we sign Brunner at this point it will be out of left field. I am more awaiting the news of the Nyquist signing and this point...But if he does end up here I won't complain!

It makes me ill that Nyquist isn't signed yet because they "might want to bring Dan Cleary back". Consider yourselves lucky that you didn't sign him, realize you are OVER the cap, not overpay for a shell of what he once was (which wasn't that awesome to start with) and MOVE ON. Nyquist can do nothing but grow. He is exciting to watch and he makes things happen. Cleary is getting worse and makes things happen for the other team, sadly.

And don't show me his stats from last year. Half of those I'm sure were deflections off various body parts.

You can stop being ill, then, because the article doesn't say that. It says that in addition to Nyquist, the Wings would like to sign Cleary. To quote:

The Wings already are over the $64.3-million salary cap. Besides an eventual deal with Nyquist, the Wings also would like to bring back veteran forward Daniel Cleary, an unrestricted free agent. But they would have to clear cap room through trades to make that happen.

There you go.

I hope they aren't hung up on giving him 2 years. He has done enough IMO to deserve at least two years.

In the article it says Holland himself said that the two sides were very close.

Brunner just retweeted this from his brother:

@adibru: by the way.. nice cap coach!!! #redwings #swiss #european #championship #gold #medal #beachvolleyball http://t.co/QNC1fvGm97

That's his dad in the RW cap. Guess there're no hard feelings amongst the Brunner clan, eh?

Most fans over here still think that Brunner should (have) resign(ed) with the Wings. Now new rumours (nothing to base this up sofar) are on that talks to the Preds might be held by his agent since they are looking for a scoring wing. Personally I'd like to see him to stay in the NHL in Detroit. Althoug...getting him back would be a great asset for our team here. With Damien we might have made it in the final this year i.o. going out after 7 games in the semis vs. the later cup winner Bern!
