[Official] Damien Brunner signed to multi-year deal

653 posts in this topic

I'm hearing a deal between the Devils and Gordie Howe is imminent.

 

This makes sense. He was at a game a season ago. Where there's smoke, there's fire. I expect an announcement next week.

The competiton committe in one form or another has always been around. Otherwise, you're trying to say how bad Bettman has been, and pointing out something that has been done forever in the NHL and every other sport. That he's booed is the fault of the morons in the crowd that are ruining the moment for themselves. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

Well of course he's going to get booed, despite the good job he has done business-wise, three work stoppages in under 20 years is never going to sit well with the fans. I don't follow other sports as closely yas hockey, but aren't those commissioners widely unpopular with the fans too? It seems to me it's just not a job that lends itself to being a fan favorite. Knowing how unpopular he is with the fans and probably even many of the players due to labor negotiations, I just don't see how it isn't a better idea to have some well-respected person with a hockey background award the Cup. Why does it matter what other sports do?

Messier is well respected around the league. Would you want to see him presenting the Cup to the Devis or in a series the Devils lost. The commissioner is a neutral party to handle those sorts of things.

And the first lockout essentially saved the NHL, or at least a lot of individual teams including the Devils. The second one, had it happened a year earlier would have kept Parise on the Devils. While you can correctly say those front loading long term deals were loopholes of the owners own making, the fact of the matter is the game is a lot better without them.

Nick Barlotta says the deal is done between jersey and brunner... We will see if he is an Єklund (2.3% accurate) insider or if he is valuable

Barlotta just repeated an Єklund (2.3% accurate) rumor like it was his own :lol:

That won't prove anything, unfortunately.

Good and bad are hard to define with commissioners. Since they work for the owners, and the owners are making money, Bettman has been good. From a fan's perspective, though, he's terrible. I don't believe that his actions since taking over have been good for the game. It may have been good for the owners, but there may still be long term consequences. Furthermore, as others have said, the league has figured out how to get more money out of the die hard fans it has. IMO it has not done a particularly good job adding fans. As one of those die hards, who continues to go to a couple games a year and occasionally buy merchandise, despite the commissioner's willingness to lock the players out for half a season when he didn't have to, I'm glad Bettman got booed at the draft. As a realist, I know Bettman's not going anywhere, because the owners love him, and I can also understand why.

Well if no deal happen it will prove that he is an Єklund (2.3% accurate)... if a deal happen he could have guess right since a lot of people could do that guess

TG has been saying Lou was meeting with Henrique and his agent on Friday, if that's true, (and it is, it's TG) then how can he be signing Brunner too? Doesn't quite add up

Devils have $10.6 million in space. They can sign multiple guys.

not always, sometimes in the hockey world a trade or a signing is really close but for some reason something come up and it doesnt go through. Totally possible that someone had details on that deals... say something and that one side kill the deal after. so its not black on white that if someone report a rumour that doesnt happen that he was bullsh!ting.

 

of course it goes both ways, it could be total bullsh!t but just cause something happen doesnt mean there wasnt real interest and that it never came close to happen.

So what has your source told you? Just want to clarify, are we or are we not going after Raymond? They've passed in Gagne? And they are definitely in on Brunner?

Also earlier in the week you said that they are shopping A-train, and a trade could come this upcoming week. Is that still true?

 

my sources? i dont have any sources? what are you talking about lol

 

and when did i say that we were shopping A-Train? That wasnt me

I was talking more logistically, Lou can't be in two places at once. TG confirmed Henriques party will be in Jersey, while said basically nothing about Brunner or Raymond

Yeah it was Colin226. You guys both have Jersey Avatars so I got confused haha.

This was the quote he posted in the Zid thread that i was refering too:

."There are rumors that Lou is shopping Volch and could move him next week. Can't share where I read that but the source has been reliable and if it got out, we might lose the source (if you do wind up finding it, please don't run to TG or post it elsewhere). Can't see how we move Volch but hell, I'd be down.. Might even crack a beer to celebrate"

yeah like you figured i didnt say that but even if Volch start the season in NJ, doesnt mean Colin was bullsh!ting either, Lou could have done everything in his power to try to move him but no one would bite. Not because it's not happening that there was nothing.

Wasnt saying it was BS. Thats why I wanted to know what the source had told you so far. Later, after you said you have no source I backtracked and realized it was Colin.

Because every sports blogger thinks he has the inside scoop and wants to be the first to report it.
