Maybe Helm can center the 2nd line, Anderson the 3rd, and someone else the 4th. Get BRUNNER, GET HIM, HE IS A STUDDDD. Brunner-Anderson-Nyquest would be the best 3rd line in the league. GETTER DONE KENNY.

 

LOL, 3 guys with a combined career total games played less than one season is your best 3rd line in hockey?

Really, I think Chi would have something to say about that!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Just think Sammy's contract has turned into a major obstacle in keeping Brunner.

That's why you don't do multi-year deals to roster filler garbage.

J Walter Weatherman, is that you?

 

But, yeah. I agree.

Anyone else consider Brunner not signing anywhere else yet a good thing?  Tells me no team came in & blew him away with an offer.  Might just me being overly optimistic though.

I'll take whatever optimism we can find at this point. TSN talking a lot about Wings/Weiss not so much about Brunner.

no reports of teams even being interested in him/talking to him.. not that i've heard anyway. surprising and probably more of a good thing imo

I read that he's had offers but that's all I've heard. Makes me think he really just wanted to see what he's worth.

Yeah this was probably the plan that he and his agent had all along to try and get some kind of base/starting point for them to ultimately to sign with Detroit.

I think he's gone with Tatar taking his place. With the cap, and Tatar's more rounded play, it might not be the worst thing for the Wings. That is, if they have to choose between the two, I am happy if they choose Tatar. Both would be great, but I don't see any room in the roster.

A possibility that I don't know if anyone discussed. Perhaps Detroit brass was prepared, throughout Brunner's negotiation process, to give his spot to Tatar. The kid has certainly earned a place on the team.

Count these two out of #RedWings picture: Valtteri Filppula and Damien Brunner.

Anybody want to take bets that Brunner ends up with either Montreal or Chicago?

I still take Weiss and Alfie for the terms and $$$ over Flip and Brunn for the term and $$$ they are asking for.

At this point, I'm taking St. James with a grain of salt when it comes to these moves.
