And according to her, it looks like Cleary will be around 3 years $9mil (What the f***???) and Brunner will be around $2.5mil a year with no length specified.

i wanted to keep a buyout for next year incase holland wakes up and sees franzens longterm deal is a big risk


And according to her, it looks like Cleary will be around 3 years $9mil (What the f***???) and Brunner will be around $2.5mil a year with no length specified.

Looks like they don't want to buy out any forwards according to her latest article

I'm glad Big Bert is coming back. When healthy he brings so much to the table. And plays really well with Pavel (who doesn't though?haha). And he's one of our best shootout guys! If worse come to worse and he re-injures his back, we obviously have a lot of options to take his place. Love me some Bertuzzi!

thanks.

If Brunner is seeking 2.5 mill then I don't see why we won't get a deal done. Also, Weiss is a capable filp replacement imo so I'll take this all as more good news then bad

I may be one of the biggest Cleary fans out there, but if he gets re-signed for 3yrs at 3mil I'll be pretty pissed. A 2yr deal for 2.5 or less would've been all I'd like to see. I hope Helene is a bit off base. The Brunner # is good.

2.5 is a great deal for us in regard to Brunner, I don't care if he wants 6 years. I thought he'd come in closer to 3, maybe even 3.5 to keep him...

But 3 per for Cleary?! WTF?!

I would expect Brunner to be asking for 4-5 years or something and we're wanting 2-3 and they're probably even on pricing for this deal not to be done yet. That or Brunner wants to see what other teams think he's worth right now and go back to Holland and see what he does.

If Cleary gets 3 mill I think I will officially rage. The guy should be in the 1.5-2mill TOPS. Any more than that and Kenny is throwing money down the toilet. Although I must re-state we should NOT be re-signing him to ANY contract

So were in the process of giving a guy that skates like he has cement in his skates, gets knocked over by a breeze, and in general is on the WAY decline of his career 3 yrs and 3 mil per? 

But for some reason can't give vinny 4.5 for 5 years and a role that we actually NEED!!

 

Man good thing Holland has a hard on for his vets or the wings could actually win a few more cups.

I like Bert. Cleary signing seems like a lot, but everyone from teammates to coaching to management seems to like him. He's a heart guy who gives his all every night. Good for the bottom six

Edit: I can't imagine 3x3 being true. If it is, its a little much

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Obviously the pace of 37 years old Cleary won't be a problem unlike Lecavalier  :scared:...good $$$ for Brunner though  :clap:

HAHAHAHA. Wow, if this is indeed true, Holland has seriously reached a new low n his stupidity. 

 

4.5M too big a risk for a proven elite player.

 

3M a good number for a guy 37 years old for 3 year contract.

 

 

Seriously?
