The dudes agent totally ruined Brunner's chances for a decent contract anywhere. He over played his hand and now Brunner is still sitting outside the circle with two weeks till training camp. Someone will snag him but it wont be for more than a 2 mil one year deal
After seeing what Grabo got, I think this is pretty spot on, I wouldn't be surprised if he has a real hard time getting a multi year deal at this point, unless it is for like $1.5m.
I think the agent was whispering all the right words into Brunner's ears, I just think with it being a shortened lockout year, teams are going to be hesitant to jump all over a guy.

"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."
