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


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."

When is that, again?

 

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


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

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!
