Love it if we get him. This creates some real competition to get in the top 6. Also gives us some help in case of injuries.


Edit: In case you don't follow him. Todd Cordell does a great job covering the Devils and was the first to report this.

WOOOO!!!!

According to multiple reports, the Devils have invited Damien Brunner to camp on a professional tryout basis.

I had heard earlier today that a nameplate was made for Brunner and that he was expected to join the team.

I'm guessing he'll report to camp within the next day or two and be in the lineup when the Devils play Thursday night.

I think this was a very smart move by Lou Lamoriello to bring him in for a look. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see him eventually end up signing with the team.

 

Also yes, Todd is a very good sports writer. It's amazing how young he really is. Man deserves mad props!

I think Lou probably pulled another hardball move knowing he didnt need Brunner 100% (not at the price he was asking anyway) and gambled on waiting late to try to get him cheaper if he couldnt get any taker.

 

I don't always agree with Lou's ways but when he pull off stuff like that I definitely see good ol' Lou

NJDEVILS sign Brunner to an ATO, he'll practice tomorrow
 

Lou Lamoriello re-words, not ATO, PTO, "skillful. No promises, no guarantees"

 

he's really playing hardball trying to get him cheap uh? lol

Elias - Zajac - Jagr 

Clowe - Henrique - Ryder 

Zubrus - Loktionov - Brunner 

Carter - Josefson - Bernier 

 

Olesz - Barch - Tedenby

 

thats a good depth, not a lot of top end talent but good depth. Sucks to lose all the talent we did in the last few years but in another way i've been saying that NJ didnt really need that most of the time with their system. It's a system that you have to do the same thing over and over and work hard hoping to capitalize at some point, its not to creative so you don't see our guys do things their way too often. Thats why guys like Bernier or Carter are doing great.

The official NHL AppĀ® just announced it. I bet this wasn't the way Damien wanted it to go down.

Why are some sources listing him as a center? Thought he was a winger.

if he does make the team as a try-out, can we assume his contract would be a lot less than he is asking for

Is the day to day of Jagr and the maintenance for Elias more than they are saying?
