#2325875 Nyquist vs. Brunner

Posted by kipwinger on 18 August 2012 - 05:38 PM

brunner seems to be a good add to our team. he has some good hands, nice speed and a great shot. but am i the only one, who sees a little issue in his skating abilities? i hope im not right, but he might look like a concussion candidate too...

by the way. take a look at the stats, joe thornton and rick nash had in the swiss league in the lockout 04/05 comparing to damien...
2004/05 HC Davos-Swiss Games-40 Goals-10 Assist-44 Points-54
PIM-80 (Thornton)
2004/05 HC Davos-Swiss Games-44 Goals-26 Assist-20 Points-46 PIM-83 (Nash)

2010/11 EV Zug Games-45 Goals-24 Assist-36 Points-60 PIM (?) (Brunner)

He'll definitely have to stop cutting into the middle of the ice like he seems to do, play a little more north-south hockey, but I don't really think he'll have too much trouble adapting. With his speed, skating ability, and wrister he'll have all the chances he wants, even without his nifty toe drags.

Youre spot on with the first 12. But #13 is Emmerton. And there will be revolving injuries that allow him to play.

We get it Cory, you really want to play for the Wings this year. Any other year and you might have a chance but there are just too many guys ahead of you that are better. Now get off of LGW and go skate a few laps to get ready for whoever picks you up off of waivers.

Pretty sure I'm ahead of Emmerton on the depth chart.
