#2427292 Brunner Contract Talks

I. DON'T.f******. UNDERSTAND. THIS.


#2426514 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 05 July 2013 - 10:58 AM

I wouldn't mind this deal at all if A.) We'd already re-signed Brunner and B.) we'd been able to unload Sammy.

I won't hate this deal as long as we don't re-sign Cleary. I will hate everything if we don't re-sign Brunner.

I don't know if any if these things are related, but I have feels and it makes sense in my head right now.

Good lord, I never thought the answer to the question "can one ever have too many Swedes?" would be a resounding "f*** yes you can," but here you have it.

#2426162 Brunner Contract Talks

Were you watching Great Expectations?

:lol: seems like it, huh?

But if anyone's wondering, The Heat was effing hilarious.

Edit: fwiw, from Kukla's Korner:


"The Wings do have offers out to all of their own three UFAs Valtteri Filppula, Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner but all three are expected to cross into the free market Friday. Filppula is out of the picture for the Wings, anyway, because he believes himself to be a No. 1 center. Cleary is looking for a three-year contract around $3 million per season, and he has garnered interest from almost a dozen other teams. The Wings remain hopeful of working out a deal because Cleary rebounded from a slow start to have a great playoff stretch, he brings leadership and hes beloved by coach Mike Babcock. Likewise, Brunners camp has been contacted by several suitors, but the Wings remain hopeful of retaining his services, too."

From freep:

"They remain in talks with Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner...Brunner is looking for around $2.5 million...in a multi year deal."

WHAT IS THEf****** PROBLEM?!?!?!?? That is MORE than reasonable, I don't care if he wants 17 years!

I say let him go. Pav didnt "test". You got Tatar BEGGING for his spot. Bye Brunner.


Your opinion, you're entitled to it. I, like many here, want him back. Badly. Because I <3 him.

This is when you tell Brunner to himself. He will disappear into nothingness without all the skill players and pp time the Wings surround him with. A good GM woulf have his offer declining by the minute right now.


????

He has every right to see what's out there. I imagine everyone is having a tough time determining his market value right now--so let the market determine his value. Hopefully then he comes back to Kenny and gives him a chance to match. Until then, we wait, and I fantasize about setting other arenas on fire and stabbing other GMs like a jealous girlfriend.

Knowing that other teams are talking to Brunner's agent right now is like someone trying to sleep with your spouse. I feel dirty. And angry. Like I want to set stuff on fire. :(

Edit: like if I was in a bar right now, I would break a beer bottle on the table and cut a b**ch.


#2425133 Trade/Buyout thread

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 02 July 2013 - 09:54 PM

Khan reported that weeks ago as one possible scenario, and admitted that it was simply conjecture. If Sammy does do that, he'll be the scorn of the Wings. I'd throw eggs at him as soon as he stepped on the ice.


It's a ***** move, for sure. If true? f*** him. He doesn't deserve to wear the wheel.


#2425032 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 02 July 2013 - 07:35 PM

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?!

The Flyers who have a weak blue line and shaky goaltending.
 
LMAO
 
God I hope this was intended to be humorous.


My interpretation was that this was satirical--if not? Woooo boy...

@DaveLozo: Lecavalier: "I'm tired of playing on an offense-first team with a weak blue line and shaky goaltending. So I am signing with the Flyers."

I have my heart set on it being named after our new superstar:

Hampus Melen Arena.
