In Topic: Brunner clears waivers- PDB says their relationship is over

it was definitely a personality issue, but just looking at goals scored is completely oversimplifying the problem- Brunner brings absolutely nothing else to the team if he doesn't score. Guys like zubrus, ruutu, etc contribute elsewhere to justify this decision.

 

I'm not saying he wasn't bad, I'm saying it's a not-so-great hockey decision and totally a personality decision.

of course but he was getting 2.5m for 2 seasons... what player has been "good enough" for us? (well the above 1million guys) 

 

Last 2 seasons so far:

Brunner 2.5m - 13g in 77

Zubrus 3.1m - 15g in 109

Clowe 4.8m - 8g in 46

Zajac 5.7m - 22g in 103

Henrique 4m - 32g in 96

Elias 5.5m - 20g in 90

Jagr 3.5 - 28g in 108

Ryder 3.5 - 22g in 107

Ruutu 3.5 - 8g in 45

 

to me Henrique and Jagr are the only 2 that did alright based on what they should be bringing

 

I agree. Waiving Brunner does not appear to be a good hockey decision. Half the team should be waived if that's what it was.

 

This was clearly a personality conflict issue and this is how they are dealing with it.
