Brunner Contract Talks

Holland probably doesn't think he can afford Brunner when he decides to sign Cleary 5x5.

Give him 2.5. He's worth the risk. Put your names on your respective dotted lines.

What's the worst thing that can happen if he doesn't work out? We trade him to a team that needs to reach the floor for a 7th round conditional pick and everyone has kittens about how Kenny overpays, which they're going to do no matter what.

From freep:

"They remain in talks with Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner...Brunner is looking for around $2.5 million...in a multi year deal."

WHAT IS THEf****** PROBLEM?!?!?!?? That is MORE than reasonable, I don't care if he wants 17 years!

That's all he is looking for? He should have been signed ages ago. The way Kenny is putting this off I figured he wanted 4 mil. 2.5 is a bargain

I think Hossa wanting to come here made it go to Kenny's head...something is seriously up with that man (if that's true ^^)

Let's not forget everything we know is rumors and speculation. I can say with an almost certainly that 2.5 million a year would not be a sticking point for Holland... willing to bet Brunner is looking for more than that.

I'm so done with this...I'm sure this weekend I'll read Brunner has signed for $3.5Mill somewhere else, Holland will whine about the cap and spending money while Samuelsson, Cleary, Tootoo, Bertuzzi remain on the roster.

Whatever, just field the same team and act shocked when we miss the playoffs Ken.

It's funny our best acquisition last summer was Brunner.

Now fast forward to this summer and we don't get him resigned?

I like some of you are getting impatient on this.

Oh we'll make the playoffs but probably won't get out of the 1st or second round...rinse and repeat.

Holland is trying to figure out how much he can play Cleary right now. He was uninspired by Cleary's agent coming in at 3 mil. He told the agent he thought Cleary was worth much more and encouraged him to up the demands.

Man, if that's true, there is absolutely no excuse to not sign him. 3, 4, 5 years, its doesn't matter. $2.5M is peanuts, if Brunner doesn't work out and becomes Leino 2.0 he can still be easily traded/bought out because its such a tiny cap hit.

Dammit Kenny, why are you making it so hard to defend you????

Does anybody else get a little more depressed everytime you refresh the threads page and don't see "Brunner signed with Wings"?

Holland made him an offer this morning but no dice yet

Holland is staring out the window right now wondering why these good players don't want to play for peanuts.

:clap: I don't know why Kenny didn't put the 'C' on Samuelsson after Nick retired...

but seriously, apparently the cap is going to go to like 70 and then 80 million in the next few years... and we can't give Brunner 2.5 mil????? this is the guy that is having the most fun out there!!
