Well, you know what they say about guys with big noses...

Now you tell me.  It would have helped had someone finished that old adage for me years ago  <_<

More telling in this case is that Brunner is 27 years old.  Initially, he and his agent were probably not really interested in taking 750K- 1.25M for a year or two as a bridge. He wants to make big money now considering his time in the NHL will most likely be shorter than other players in their only their second season. The fact that no one else pulled the trigger on this guy leads us to believe the asking price was over the top.

 

The wings offered him 2 years at 2.5mill per season. I would think he was either incredibly mismanaged to not accept that or he legitimately wanted more playing time and did not care as much about the money (doubtful). Now he's stuck with a PTO and will possibly be making quite a bit less than the Wings offer.

 

Either way, might work out in our favor, but his camp fvcked up.

Looks like Brunner is getting the Sykora spot with Elias and Zubrus, per TG.

if we sign him i really hope its 2 years at least a lower cap hit. I really think we're lucky to be in a position to get him now and we're likely landing him cause we're one of the only team who can and is willing to give him a shot. But it could be different next summer.

It’s basically saying his manager screwed up big by overestimating his bargaining position

Would like to see a two year deal. Would stink to have to replace both he and Jagr if he does indeed prove to be a decent player this year and leaves.

Yep, I understood it, but I didn't run it through the translator for others.

Realistically, can he hope for more than 1.5-2 million at this point? I guess he can have a beastly pre-season (lol) and then teams get interested in his services and that jacks up the price, but really, at this point?

Which begs the question, how exactly would a post-tryout contract work? Say he does have a beastly pre-season, would the Devils have exclusive signing rights for a window of time, almost like an RFA? Or is he fair game?

Good question but based on what I remember happening a couple years ago with stralman I would think he is open game after training camp is over.

Apparently there's only room for one giant honker on the team.

 

:giggle: you beat me to it


maybe by signing him to a low one year contract, he will have to something to prove and perhaps perform to get a better one

Either way, its nice to have pleasant news like this one game into the preseason. Hopefully he sticks and we have essentially revamped our team in one season.

I'm sorry if I missed it, but what are the details of a PTO in the NHL? The only thing I can really find is this blurb on PTO's in the AHL...

 

 

 

Professional Try Out (PTO) is found only in the AHL. This type of contract is limited to 25 games and a player can only be signed to a PTO twice per season. After the second time, the player is either signed to a Standard Player Contract, is a free agent, or if the player is signed to an ECHL team, he is then returned to that team.[3]

I think you can only sign PTO in NHL until the beginning of the season.
