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.


You could go see him a lot at least, we know how much you loved him :)

Not wearing a damn Yotes jersey. He wasn't here long enough to earn my love in another jersey. :lol:

From the article :

 

 

 

Man müsse laufend Entscheidungen treffen. Darunter auch solche, die auf den ersten Blick schwer nachvollziehbar sind. Wie das abgelehnte Angebot der Red Wings, die ihm zum Schritt in die NHL verholfen hatten. Sheehy dazu: «Damien hat seine Zeit in Detroit auf jeden Fall geliebt, freut sich nun aber auf neue Möglichkeiten.»

 

Translates to : 

 

You have to make decisions day-to-day. Some of them are hard to understand. Like the rejected offer from the Red Wings, which helped him getting to the NHL. Sheehy : Damien loved his time in Detroit for sure, but is looking foward to new possibilitys now.

 

 

That leaves no room for speculation, if Sheehy said this. Won't see him in Detroit next season.

There was no room for speculation anyhow. The Wings are above the roster limit and above the cap.

True, but I never read it in that clarity from any side involved so I thought I share it.

From the Hockey News.  Speculation that Colorado, Anaheim, Phoenix, Dallas & Buffalo are still interested.

I wonder if he gets more than 2 mil per.  I think that's about what he's worth.

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.

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"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."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

i see him all the time around the hockey stadium here in Zug. Apparently he is on his way back to the States. My guess he is packing his stuff at the Condo in Detroit.


My wish: A healthy roster

I assume you sit there in the stands every day, decked out in Blackhawks gear, taking notes, like a planted scout.

 

Y'know, just to mess with him.

I'm surprised no one posted the latest on him but I suppose because most honestly don't care anymore. Anyways, Sheeny came out and said that Brunner is open to any team right now and is still looking for a job. Right now the basis is that he will start the season with EV zug and will hope to join the NHL at a later date during the season.

He played his cards all wrong. I may blame his agent but in reality Brunner didn't want to re up with Detroit and he still would've been on this magical train ride.
