1. Damien the Devil. Destiny.

 

2. I'm guessing he knows nothing about New Jersey, and only a bit more about the Devils organization. RIP, Brun-Brun. We barely knew ye.

Trogdor approves of the Home Star Brunner nickname. Does that mean he'd burninate the goalie when he scores?

Edited by TheXym, 13 July 2013 - 10:27 PM.

It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

I have to laugh at how bad everyone wanted this guy re-signed, and when he held out, everyone got on Holland to get it done, and now that he is a Devil, everyone is like, yeah, so, big deal, he's not that good anyway. If he's really not that good, then why did we want to re-sign him anyway?

We need to score more goals. He's a goal-scorer.

 

But, with Alfreddson and Weiss coming aboard (which - in addition to Abdelkader getting what will probably be a full season on the top line - should make our top six more dynamic), and with Tatar looking like the perfect Brunner replacement (if not upgrade).........


Don't Toews me, bro!

Brunner was more of a want than a need after this off-season. I personally didn't really like his play other than he could score goals, and think Tatar would replace him quite easily given the same minutes and role.

Sad to see him go.  I liked his personality and he would have improved his play staying in Babcock's system for a couple more seasons.  Now it looks like he's off to the wasteland of New Jersey.  

 

I predict he'll be back in Switzerland after this next season.

Still gutted about him not resigning with us but that's professional sports for ya. 

 

With all the reports about him signing with New Jersey now sort of surprised it hasn't happened yet.

 

Anywho really hope Tatar tears it up this year and makes us forget about Brunner. 

 

I guess time will tell...

Tatar probably wont do that til next year. Id expect modest #s from him this year = 10-20 pts.

Your probably right. Would love see to Tatar get around 30 points this year though. 

 

Possible yes? Likely probably not. I'm all about wishful thinking...

I think he would if they played him with the 2nd line. But i see it going:

Z-Dats-Abby
Fredo-Weiss-Franzen
Tatar-Helm-Nyquist
Miller-Emdog-Andersson

I mean yeah "injuries aside."

 

I see the lines starting off like that. 

 

It will be interesting to see if Tatar or Gus get PP time as I think they both should. At some point. 

 

And another thing I'm not totally sad about is no more Brunner on the point during the PP.

 

I won't miss that tbh.

Well,if that is how our forward lines shake out (and I'm not sure it will be with all the dead weight we've got hanging around) then I'm not too impressed.  Unless, of course, it's 2009 and I'm not aware that I've time traveled.  I know it's asking a lot, but wouldn't it be nice if we had one (legit) top six winger who wasn't 30+ years old?  Just so I could have one player on the roster that I didn't have to pencil a little question mark next to. 


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."

"Emdog," which has to be the dumbest nickname I've ever seen, is on the roster, it's going to be as an extra forward unless Helm can't go.  I know there's been some noise about the Wings moving Samuelsson or Tootoo, but they don't have to.  Once they shift Alfredsson's bonus money to next year's cap, they can afford to waive both Emmerton and Eaves, eat the little bit of cap space that they'll get hit with for it, and still be over $1mil under the cap.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I like to imagine that every time he gets close to signing a deal, he comes here and reads the boards and sees how much trash we talk and then backs out. :lol:

No news on it yet. 

 

If he indeed does go there,  now they just need Miroslav Satan.
