Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Swiss (Zug local) newspaper today reports that Brunner will return end of August to North America. Destination was not revealed but signing could take place very soon. His employer who would get over the salary cap or close by with Brunner's signing needs to make other transactions in order to clear cap space first. So Brunner will return to the NHL and will not play here in Zug next saison. Lets se

Somehow circumvent the cap and sign him for $3 million a season.  Yea, that would do it.  :)

Sign him for league minimum and give him 2 million in bonuses. That ought to do it

And say hello to the reason for the next lockout

 

Edit: Granted it couldn't happen, not being an entry level or 35+ contract...

Yep, and then use magic to free up three roster spots. Perhaps we could send Samuelsson to Azkaban?

Ha ha ha. This made me laugh good.

I just want to see Sammy, Bert, and Tootoo gone before the season starts. That allows us to do good things.

I hope Damien enjoyed his slice of humble pie.

for what it's worth, via Malik:

 

"There's a lot of speculation regarding Damien because he hasn't found a new employer. People who believe that he hasn't received an offer because he wants too much money have no idea [what's going on]. Money was not and is not the priority for him. He wants to play where he has the best opportunity. In that sense, nothing's changed," explains the Canadian [agent].

 

Agent, not Brunner??

I like Brunner, but who would clear cap space to sign him? He'd be a great addition to any team but I'm not sure Is go to so much trouble to sign him. Unless it actually is the Wings who have a lot of chaff to dispose of.

If he's smart, he will sign with us and work hard. He'll find himself in the top 6 and with a nice paycheck plus a few Stanley Cups 3 or 4 years down the line. If he's dumb, he'll sign in Phoenix and rot away as a disappointment.

Agent, not Brunner??

 

Best opportunity=guaranteed top 6/PP spot perchance?  Not happening in Detroit unless Kenny suddenly ships off Abby & Franzen in a trade.  Let's concentrate on getting that 1 year deal with Nyquist finally done & trimming the roster by 2 spots instead of dreaming about Brunner.

The original article (German):

@Guggti: Grundsätzliches zu @damien_brunner http://t.co/lZDm9xCL5i

If he ends up in Phoenix I'm going to make a snarky poster and put it on the glass because I'm triflin'. Suggestions are welcome.
