At times he was our best forward who didn't just announce an extension or doesn't wear that odd 'C' on his jersey.

I say give him 3-years, 3.25 per year.

 

Dude can OBVIOUSLY score, he improved a ton in just half a season in the NHL. I think he can up his production and the cap hit could be a huge steal.

So...Brunner has the same agent as Ryan Suter? FML

He's probably gonna sign with the Paris DoucheCanoes with Raphael Diaz for 18 billion dollars and 23 years so they can be the new Euro Thunderbuddies.

At least the Paris DoucheCanoes' farm team won the Calder Cup. Oh wait...

Is it wrong to be drunk at 10am on a Wednesday morning?

 Hard to tell if Holland is being tactical.......

 

Free-agent update

 

Holland said he is continuing talks with impending unrestricted free-agent forwards Daniel Cleary, Damien Brunner and Valtteri Filppula, but roster space is scarce.

“We have big decisions to make,'' Holland said. “We got a push of kids. We got 14 forwards under contract now (including restricted free agents Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson). We'll only carry 14.

 

“We know we have compliance buyouts at our disposal. I'll explore trades."

 

I'm talking to Cleary, Brunner, Filppula. If there's a term and number that works for us, we'll try to fit them in. If not, we'll go in a different direction. We like all these players, but sometimes if there's a better opportunity elsewhere a player's got to pursue it.''

 

Filppula's chances of returning appear slim. He was seeking more than $5 million per season but struggled during the regular season and the playoffs.

Holland said defenseman Ian White was told he won't be re-signed, which was apparent long ago.

I say tactical for sure. Never want to show your cards in a negotiation, especially for brunner's sake (we actually want to sign him)

Someone will probably through Ville Leino money at him.  Should be interesting...do you guys think Zetterberg has any pull here?  Seemed like the two have a nice history going back to HC Zug.  To be honest, I am a little shocked he hasn't resigned already. 


When you lose, say little. When you win, say less.

If it's wrong, then I don't wanna be right. 


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."

I read that more pointed toward filppula, as its seeming a certainty he's gone now.

If he wants 2.5 mil for a couple years, great. If he wants more, bye. Very simple.

we get a guy who LOVES to shoot and score goals, and is willing to put hard work into the holes in his game and we are going to low ball him? but we are content with sammy and cleary at 3mil? and quincey at 3.775?

Honestly, Id remove Brunner, Cleary, and Filppula right now. Those guys are 4th line material if we give Horton big money (7 mil per).

Franzen-Datsyuk-Horton
Zetterberg-Helm-Nyquist
Tatar-Andersson-Abdelkader
Miller-Emmerton-Tootoo

We are not hurting for small fast guys who can score when they are wide open because Datsyuk is incredible. We are hurting for big, tough, fast guys who take pressure off Datsyuk and give him more room to work his magic. Brunner will not get more than 3 years/2.5 mil per. He is not worth more than that.

Why do you insist on Helm being a 2nd line center?

Otherwise, looks OK.

I dont have to spot him there. Andersson or Emdog can go there. Just think Helm is the choice at this point.

Zetterberg will be the 2nd line center. Helm and Andersson the 3rd and 4th with Emmerton as a healthy scratch/injury fill in.

How many years in a row does Emmerton have to play in almost all of our games before uou realize he's a starter?

But with Andersson full time and Helm fully fit (hopefully) where would he fit he fit in to the roster?
