And how unsorry Vancouver fans are to lose Mason Raymond, about whom the only thing 'proven' is that he's on the decline at age 27.

 

Raymond played on a stacked Canucks club and still put up 10 goals and 12 assists in 46 games.

per TG

Just talked to Damien Brunner's agent, Neil Sheehy. Wouldn't say which teams he's talked to. Says "nothing imminent" as far as signing.

 

well this is shutting some rumours and it's making me nervous a little, we REALLY need to sign another scorer at the very least

Under direct orders from Lou to say nothing. Come on guys, this is a good sign

Typical response before a player gets signed to New Jersey, jus' sayin'.

how a guy who's probably going to have back problems for the rest of his career because of a BROKEN BACK is the super safe commodity, I don't know. With Brunner you could hit a home run. With Raymond, at best, he's mediocre like he always has been. Fun.

if the team was stacked and he was that good, he should've put up a few more assists maybe

Remember when the Devils signing Sheldon Souray was "imminent?"  I'm waiting until it is announced to really believe it.

I think Sheehy is also the agent for Ryan Carter if I am not mistaken.

It sounds like both sides are trying to squeeze that last .25 or .5 million out of the other side. Devils put it out there that they are also looking at Raymond (which they are probably doing as a plan B at the minimum) and Brunner's agent saying there's nothing immanent because they have a few other teams interested. hopefully something gets done eventually because this fills a pretty big hole in the lineup.

the thing with those 2 signings... its not that we're really thinking that those 2 guys (brunner / Raymond) would break walls coming here, but i still think they'd be upgrades. Especially for our special teams, it could prevent to see 3rd and 4th line players on our first wave of PP for examples like we saw last season. same thing with the PK.

The back injury is an issue, but even if he only puts up 40 to 50 points his speed adds a lot to the team.

Ottawa is still smarting from Alfredsson and the season ticket holder backlash.   I would not count them out in their fondness for European players.

Who is Damien Brunner?

If you want a brief summary, here is some quick info:

 

He's a Swiss player who dominated the Swiss league for the few years before 2012-2013 (including the lockout period), which is when he signed with the Wings for a year.

He's a slightly small (5'11, 180-185 lbs) right-shooting left winger.

Very talented, but may need to put on some muscle and toughen up to adjust to the NHL's physical game.

He played with two very good players (Datsyuk, Zetterberg) for much of last season, which leads some to believe that he needs to be set up to score.

His most prominent feature is his nose.

In 44 games, he had 12 goals and 14 assists for 26 points for the Red Wings.

Brunner's Agent: "I am sorry but until I have signed contract for Damien Brunner, I do not comment on who or who isn't interested in Damien"

 

MORE Brunner's Agent: "People are able to find out many things by process of elimination & I can't be a part of that until Damien's signed."
