In Topic: Brunner's nickname

16 January 2013 - 11:57 AM

to answer your question simply... yes. Look at Z's stats before he came to detroit and his first year here, and his stats were not nearly as great as Brunners are.

 

 

1998-1999 TIMRA IK-SWEDEN-2 37 15 13 28   2           1999-2000 TIMRA IK-SWEDEN-2 32 20 14 34   20           1999-2000 SWEDEN-WJC-A 7 3 2 5   8           2000-2001 TIMRA IK-SWEDEN 47 15 31 46   24           2000-2001 SWEDEN-WJC-A 9 1 3 4   2           2000-2001 SWEDEN-WC-A 9 1 3 4   2           2001-2002 TIMRA IK-SWEDEN 48 10 22 32   20           2001-2002 SWEDEN-OLYMPICS 4 0 1 1   0           2001-2002 SWEDEN-WC-A 9 0 7 7   4           2002-2003 RED WINGS 79 22 22 44 6 8 5 1 4 135 16.3 2002-2003 SWEDEN-WC-A 9 3 4 7   2           2003-2004 RED WINGS 61 15 28 43 15 14 7 1 2 137 10.9

And during the last WC, Brunner had the same stats as Datsyuk (and play three matches less than him)

Firstly, excuse my English, I'm a French-native speaker (from Switzerland)

I just want to know if the hype on this guy is legit. Can a guy put up these numbers in Europe and then step over and do the same in the NHL?

Brunner has better stats (points per game) than Zetterberg, Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin, John Tavares or Joe Thornton in the Swiss League. Will he do the same in the NHL? Who knows? But he has the skills to be a (very?) good player in the NHL.

 

Is it pronounced Brooner or Brunner as in Langenbrunner?

It's [Brunər]
