In Topic: Vaya con dios Damien Brunner

14 December 2014 - 09:33 AM

Local newspaper here wrote today that Brunner signed a 4 year contract worth 1 million Francs a season ( little more than 1 million dollars per year)


He has become the highest paid player in the league (of all times). not bad for a 50 game season


Lugano signed him because the coach is Patrick Fischer, who used to play with him in Zug. Lugano is also the team who could or wanted to afford this contract.


he does have an exit clause in case the NHL calls again...

Zug didn't have the finances to get him back and their roster is packed, hence he signed with Lugano. Brunner instantly makes Lugano a contender. The Swiss league is much faster than the nhl.

I am not sure Baba is going to stay with the Wings after this season or that The Wings wants to sign him right away. I think both parties want to see how this season goes. Resigning a coach shouldn't be that hard.
