Last quote I read was that he was ahead of schedule on his recovery. 

They initially said something like 4 weeks and its been about 3 I think now....you never know with Lou and injury reports...

Based on nothing, I'd guess he sits until the Olympics, plays for Switzerland, and comes back for us.

Not sure if its mentioned in another thread, but I saw TG reported yesterday that Brunner was skating on his own. 

This Friday makes it the 4 week mark....

The Devils are beyond frustrating when it comes to injury reporting.

It's gotten to the point where we should just add a month to the released time frame.

Brunner is nearly exactly on schedule if he's skating on his own right now.

All they can do is predict. Injuries aren't a definitive thing. What takes one guy 2 weeks to heal could take another guy 6. Its not like every other team has dead on injury reports.

I would think that Brunner being back by the Winter Classic would be the best case scenario

@TGfireandice: Sounds like Damien Brunner (right knee) might be ready to rejoin Devils next week after the team gets back from this trip.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

If he's money, we could legit be rolling 3 lines when Elias gets back. Keep the Zajac and Henrique lines together, throw Bernier back up on the Elias line, where he did fairly well, see if Sislo can stick as a 4th liner.

I was telling my friend a couple months ago that Ryder and Brunner were useless black holes of nothingness on the cycle. Then they both got hot, lol. Maybe I should trash them a bit more often.

You're basically right that they're useless on the cycle, so when they played together they looked awful.

Split apart, so they're both the offensive finisher on their line, they look better because the line their on is more well rounded.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
