I say let him go. Pav didnt "test". You got Tatar BEGGING for his spot. Bye Brunner.
No, Pav signed a contract for a team in Russia back in the day, but you were probably only 8 then so you won't remember.
Right now no-one knows what Brunner's market value is, so both sides are willing to wait and see what he's offered.
"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
