If you don't know who Nelson Mandela is then your education system failed you...




#2555872 Vaya con dios Damien Brunner

Posted by kipwinger on 11 December 2014 - 06:19 PM

Apples to oranges.

At only 23, there's a chance Nestrasil may still have some upside and he can still be retained as a restricted free agent at the end of the season if he works out. He's also got four inches and 20+ lbs. over Brunner, and has the versatility to line up at both center and wing. He also has an easily bury-able cap hit that is a fraction of Brunners.

On the other hand... At almost 29, Brunner pretty much is what he is. A small winger who hasn't been able to hang onto a top six role in what amounts to about two seasons of NHL experience, but doesn't have the tools to play in his own end and is basically useless in a bottom six role.He also carries an unfriendly cap hit for a player that may end up buried in the AHL. His documented issues with PDB likely also make GM'S apprehensive.

My guess here is that he has refused an assignment to the AHL, which is likely best for him at this point, if he wants to stick at the NHL level.

 

Next to the amount of words wasted on the waiving of Colton Orr and Frazer Maclaren, that's the most text I've ever seen spent on two players who matter as little as these two do.

Really irritated with Smith. Those on here know I'm a huge supporter of this guy. He was the second best dman on this team and he goes and gets in a nothing fight on the power play nonetheless. Cmon dude.

I understand some consider attendance to be a problem, but this is not a discussion we need to have in every single GDT.  Please start a separate attendance thread if you'd like to pursue the topic.

You fail to understand? With all due respect, this is a FOOTBALL COUNTRY. You can put "Hockeytown" in the middle of the ice but people care more about the Lions in this town than they do hockey. And that's just the truth.

 

I live in Texas.  I know all about football freaks, Heaven help me, they're lunatics for football here... and pretend to know nothing of hockey.  This, despite the FACT that the current Calder Cup winning team sells out every single game here in Austin.  It's all about the money, and which franchise gets the tv dollars flowing, etc.

 

If I lived in or near Detroit, I would certainly have season tix to the Wings.  But I guess having such a great franchise right under their noses makes some locals complacent.  Very lucky to live near enough to attend...

Give her a wedgie and hoard all the beer. Also, jump up and yell "IN YOUR FACE!!!" every time the Wings do something good.
