We will see but i would feel comfortable with him in hte team... (think we make the playoff with him he is a top 6 guy who brin goal and speed... would fit right in ) i remind me of a brian gionta with more skill so

Seemss like a nice addition to our squad if it were to happen. I still think adding Jagr for 1 year would be a good idea.

Seems like something got lost in translation, the Devils are actually pursuing Langen-brunner.  I kid, I kid.

 

I was gonna do a post this morning on the guys NJ could be looking at but truth be told Brunner should be #1 on their list.  I'm less than enthused about his territorial play (basically didn't push the puck forward himself, played with Datsyuk and Zetterberg), but as I've been saying, NJ doesn't really need a guy like that, they have a bunch of guys who seem to have done that plenty last season.

I wouldn't be opposed to this signing, I feel like we have to do something. We just have to PRAY that his last season wasn't a fluke.

But don't be mistaken, caron14, this does not automatically make us a playoff team

We need 2 forwards I think. Get Brunner and then someone else and I think we are a really solid club again. Now more than ever we need excellent depth.
Also isnt this guy nasty in shootout? Maybe I'm thinking of someone else but I thought this kid had some sick hands.

I don't see where a 2nd forward fits.

 

Elias-Zajac-Ryder

Clowe-Loktionov-Brunner?

Henrique-Josefson-Zubrus

Olesz-Carter-Bernier

 

Unless you want to move Henrique to center, Zubrus to left wing, and add another wing at the expense of Loktionov, but Loktionov was really good last year.

I didnt want to sign Jagr at first, but our power play (which was bad) will be worse without Kovi now, and Jags could help out in that department. He's getting old and after a full season he might run out of gas, but if used properly, he could be a good addition.

Unless he moves Josefson/Fayne in some sort of package and Henrique moves back to center. I'm not a huge fan of cutting bait on those guys but could be convinced depending on the return.

Any pp must have a decent one timer on both sides. Kovy was our righty, and we had tons of guys that shoot left. A least Ryder/Bruner give us this.  Lars/Fayner shoot rt but don't have a bomb.

According to TG's blog he was 2 for 7 last year in shootouts with both goals being the winner.

Brunner was 2-for-7 on shootouts with two game-deciding goals in 2012-13. - See more at: http://blogs.northje...h.axztBPmB.dpuf

Over Olesz? He's not guaranteed a spot, he's hardly guaranteed a spot on the NHL roster. Sure, camp can come and he can impress, but there's no reason we can't fit in say Mason Raymond, Boyes or Grabovski.

Hemsky. Don't know if you consider him good though.

Clowe is very good at shootouts, so he should be able to replace Kovalchuk. I haven't looked at Ryder's numbers, but he does have a crazy wrist shot....but who knows. 

 

Honestly, Lou has had an excellent offseason. The Schneider deal is great, the additions of Clowe, Ryder and Olesz filled some holes. Obviously Kovalchuk pulling a Zach Parise sucked, but Brunner would be the guy I'd get

There is absolutely no way the Devils should be trading anything of value for Ales Hemsky.  I like Hemsky, but I don't see where he fits on a team with Ryder and Brunner.
