In Topic: Brunner Contract Talks

You can't get mad at Holland when a player turns down multiple contract offers.  Maybe he doesn't ever want to play defense... just sayin'



You must be new to LGW or, for that matter, any Red Wing forum.

Brunner will have the better career than Nyquest or Tatar, Kenny needs to get him signed, 2.5 million for 3 years, getter done.



What makes you say this about Brunner?  


I would stake a large wager that Nyquist's career is far better than Brunner's.  Tater, well that wager would be more of a 1:1 thing.  Brunner plays little D and has no physical aspect to his game.  Tater has a better game, with one notable question mark, the ability to score at the NHL level.  IMO Brunner and Tatar are both 3rd line wingers.  Nyquist is a top 6 and, in time, he has definite top line potential.

Good for the Grifs as they look to repeat!

Brunner appears to be a soft, no hit, no D, 20 goal scorer. 


Tater appears to be a more competitive replacement, with more speed and tenactiy.  The question is, can he make the same offensive contribution as Brunner?  


I prefer Tatar and bringing up the other younger forwards.  Good luck to Smiley.

In Topic: is anyone happy right now?

is anyone happy right now? - In direct reply, I am very happy with these moves.




No this isn't an overreaction thread. I'm just wondering what is everyone's thoughts right now?

Let's look at our team. We lose fil and Brunner which are negatives. Lose cleary and cola which are positive.

Gain Alfie and Weiss. So as of right now we are a worse team from last year.

Then to top it all off we could of had a much better player in fil for 5m or Vinny for 4.5m but we got stuck with Weiss for just over 4m?

Then the best part is bobby Ryan got traded for almost nothing. Nyquist, a 1st, and what any other younger prospect not named mantha, Sproul, oullet, mrazek and it would've been a done deal. Youre talking a no brainer of a deal. Ana gave him him for almost nothing they could be got so much more.

So I ask unless there's a more trades or signings(cleary makes us worse) what are everyone's reactions and thoughts right now.

Mine is I'm quite mad. Holland continues to let us down. And THE ONLY wah I see us making the playoffs is we need DAT z kronwall ericsson and Howard to play like like they did this year. As well as guys like Nyquist Anderson Tatar smith and dekeyser need to play major roles as well.



Weiss > Fil

Alfie > Brunner


How is the team worse off with these swaps?


The Wings are rebuilding and staying competitive.  They lose Fil but picked up Weiss (who is an Eastern Conference vet).  They lost Brunner and picked up a NHL HOF type player in Alfie (who is also an Eastern conference vet). 


Both are upgrades.
