In Topic: Brunner's nickname

Is it pronounced Brooner or Brunner as in Langenbrunner?

 

In Switzerland it is pronounced Brunner not Broooner.


In Topic: Swiss League Topscorer Damien Brunner

This Swiss league is missing some stuff. Defense, checking, and goalies being the most noticeable.

 

Overall I can say that Goalie level here in the Swiss league is above average. Half the league goalies could be starter or backup in the nhl as I watch about 30 games live in the stadium per season.

 

A few words to Damien Brunner. Great stickhandling, shot and speed. But I absolutely don't think he will make his spot in the roster.

Arrogant, disrespectful behavior on the ice. Shows no team spirit attitudes. No defense work. Hates body contacts. No leadership in times when team is struggeling.

 

If he is not able to make it within the first two scoring lines he will be crushed in 3rd and 4rd line. And I don't expect him having the patience and stamina to make via the AHL.
