My understanding is that it would simply hurt him too much to participate in a hockey game. And I mean physically, not emotionally.


I read somewhere that he hasn't laced 'em up since his last game.


That makes me sad.   That being said it would be nice to see him with everyone, laced up or not he's f*@#ing Steve Yzerman LGW

was really hoping he wasn't the one to go to be honest, 2 more to go...

#2448821 What would you do?...

I would also like to see Goose, Helm & Tatar.  I have always wanted our fourth line to be Bertuzzi  Abdelkader  Tootoo- Simply for selfish reasons

Tonight was not a good night for him, but I think much of the rest of this season has been better than what most on this forum will tell you (in fact, up until maybe two games ago, I thought he consistently played better than Alfredson).  He has a good skill set and he is versatile.  He just needs to get a little more comfortable in the Winged Wheel and develop some chemistry with a couple of guys.


  This all the way.   To spark him just have him center Dats and Z for a game or two haha.  But seriously

Was totally blind sided by this this morning, re-read the text three times to make sure...I just saw now to what term and I won't lie it looks good, AS long as we don't loose Tartar or Nyquist to the minors!!

Sure, if your line porn means three non-physical players on a single line. In case you'd forgotten, Zetterberg and Datsyuk have, when together on a line, seen their greatest success when paired with a physical player who can do the grunt work in the corners and screen the goalie. Holmstrom is an excellent example of this. Brunner is not. Nyquist would not be either.


It would also be a line lacking in any sort of physicality, anyone to clear space, and anyone to do the dirty work in the crease.


  Datsyuk and Zetterberg are both well known for their grunt work all over the ice, however to fit your model of player for this role how about Datsyuk Zetterberg Tatar


                                              ....Tatar is amazing around the net and could be holmer with sick skill and again line porn does come to mind (no pun intended)

All I can say at this point is how awesomely entertaining would Zetterberg Datsyuk Nyquist--------->#Eurotrips #sawitherefirst

How could you not hire this guy?  He's such a doucher it makes for hilarious entertainment.

#2430585 Um, OK, not really sure this'll have the desired effect

What happened to helping the team? If you could be a part of the best third line in hockey AND a spot on the power play what the F? I don't like the thought of him more less demanding a spot in the top six...that being said I still feel Brunner is still a Red Wing until he's not

Not to nitpick but with the correct LW/RW assignments it would be something like this.


I would prefer this:


Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Alfredsson

Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen

Tatar - Helm - Abby

Miller - Andersson - Bert/Eaves/Tootoo


If Franzen works hard during the regular season I would be very comfortable with that lineup. Each line has a shooter and a setup man. I think having one player on each line that is huge for the sake of being huge is a waste of time - you need to give the best players the top minutes and get them out there as much as possible together. Also, chemistry is chemistry so if something that looks weird on paper works then go for it. 


  I hope Mule has a hell of a year.   Also I just LOVE seeing Z one time it from the RW  :yahoo:

Brunner  has the most deadly shot on the team.  It seemed like 50% of his goals last year were terrific snipes that were placed just right, places other shooters would have been less likely to hit.

And close in around the net, others just jamb away but he lifts it up and through holes.


His defense is underrated.  He is good with his stick, can thief behind, poke and agitate well, and  the smaller ice is much easier for him to cut off passing lanes than it was in Europe.


Too often people mistake skating slowly through shooting lanes for floating.  He is not the guy you want mucking for pucks in the corner.  He is the guy that finds open shooting angles so the corner mucker can get the puck out to him for a one timer.  


Even when he has struggled and been ineffective and shut down all game long, he can find that open part of the ice in the chaos of the game's last minute of play, and bury the puck in the back of the net better than anyone else on the team.  


While Nyquist, Tatar, and Brunner are very similar players, they are not carbon copy's of each other.  They each have unique strengths and all add value to this team.


  I agree with all of this.  I feel Nyquist Tatar Brunner are all totally different players with different skill sets.   Nyquist has the playmaking ability and vision similar to Dastyuk (only other player on our team that natural at it game in and game out) Tatar is hard on the puck and bangs in goals like Crosby does, some are garbage goals some are pretty.  Brunner has speed, good hands and a f*cking bullet of a shot.  All three different and all three important.

You just don't understand....it's BRUNNER! ;)

Correct!  OUR Brunner

Not sure I would agree with this.  Morrow looked very Cleary-esque and appeared to be out of gas much of the time during the Pens' playoff run.


  Staying away from both of those guys seems to be the way to go at this point.  Just sign BRUNNER please and thank you  :ok:
