WE'RE #2! WE'RE #2!
Wait.... that's a bad thing, isn't it.
At least not taking Damien back was a good move..
10. Damian Brunner, Devils, two years, $5 million. Some devout Red Wings fans were sad to see Brunner depart the organization after a rookie NHL campaign that included 12 goals and 26 points in 44 games last season. They were less sad after watching him score just 11 times in 60 games this year while averaging only 13:32 of ice time.
2. Stephen Weiss, Red Wings, five years, $24.5 million. Weiss was a four-time 20-goal-scorer with the Panthers when he left Florida for Detroit. Unfortunately for him and his new team, the 31-year-old struggled with a groin injury all season long and finished the 2013-14 campaign with just two goals and four points in 26 games. In part because Weiss was so undependable, Red Wings GM Ken Holland had to make a deal for former Predators pivot David Legwand at the trade deadline. With four years left on his contract, Weiss is stuck in the Motor City and may face a drastically reduced role if Holland chooses to bring Legwand back.
