Brunner
 
Hi guys,

I would like to have some informations on Brunner. Never seen him played. Is he really Top6 material? Could he be any good without Z beside him?

Thanks ! ;)

If he asks 3M$ / year on Free Agent, is it too much?

If you guys could give me any informations on the guy would be greatly appreciated.

I think a lot of these questions cannot be answered after 1 NHL game. Check back in a month or two for a more reasonable response.

In his first game he looked pretty good. He was the only one who had a shot (as I recall?) on the first line with Dats & Hank. He actually had 3. From the first game, he looked like a shoot first kinda guy. Pretty much shooting whenever he could. He had a nice one-timer opportunity too.

It's hard to judge Brunner after one game. First NHL game, new team, minimum preparation time (playing with Z in freaking Switzerland doesn't count) doesn't help. And it's away to the Blues (maybe the most stacked team in the league).

If Brunner plays like a $3 million winger, he should get $3 million. Otherwise it was just a case of low risk, high reward.

I don't think Brunner will succeed in the NHL, he's not hard enough and isn't strong on the puck, easy to knock down.

He'll be another Leino, Brunnström etc.

I'm sure Brunner would be more than happy to earn $4,5M a year playing in the NHL...

So far he's played one NHL game in which I thought he was among the least bad players for Detroit. I'll give him at least a month before I comment on his future as a NHLer...

Too early to tell.
He tried some pretty weak moves and took low percentage shots with no traffic Saturday night.
Really didn't get much sense of his skating and stickhandling ability.

I am watching him play for years now and I have to say, he has to change some pieces of his game. No doubt about that. But he can still be a very good scorer if he finds a way to deal with the smaller ice.
Just watched the first period, but I thought he was very nervous. Should have fired a better shot on that first pp imo

SillyBilly 01-21-2013 09:48 PM



That's the Brunner I've seen for the last years. Give him some space and he will give you the moves.

minitrucker83 01-21-2013 10:10 PM

Watching the brunner shootout winner seemed odd. All these years watching a lefty try that move confused me. Pav's are quite a bit smoother though!

RedWingsNow* 01-21-2013 10:11 PM

He had six shots today... and like 4 in the first period or something. He's going to have to be a bit quicker on the shots.

DatsyukToZetterberg 01-21-2013 10:19 PM

I'd like to be able to get him signed to a cheap "Bridge Contract" either another 1 year deal or a 2 year deal. If he can get 20-25 points I'd consider it a good year but depending on who he have to sign & for how much he would be the 3rd or 4th priority for me. (1 being Howard, 2 being Filppula, 3 being Smith & Nyquist)

sully61 01-21-2013 10:46 PM

If this guy can gain 10+ pounds and not lose and skating, he'll be awesome.

RedWingsNow* 01-21-2013 10:53 PM

His weight doesn't matter.
What matters is whether or not he has the stones to attack defensemen and go to the net.

We saw sweet hands today. Can he pull off a move like that to get around a defenseman at full speed?

BinCookin 01-21-2013 11:02 PM

Lets just say I liked him in today's game.

He belonged on the top line :) (tonight)

CloneHakanPlease* 01-22-2013 12:38 AM

Honestly think he has 25 goal potential.

Kilts79 01-22-2013 01:31 AM

Made some bonehead plays tonight for sure.

Claypool 01-22-2013 01:34 AM

I wish people would keep fantasy questions in the fantasy forum.

Agree, he needs to master the one-timer better. Even Sammy would have scored on that cross pass from Hank last night. :nod:

What would you guys rate Damien Brunner as overall in NHL 13?
In the game he is 60 overall.

Damien Brunner - Sniper
Attributes
Slapshot power/accuarcy 80/82
Wristshot power/accuarcy 78/77
Dekes/Handeye 78/78
Passing/Puckcontrol 77/79
Accleration/Agility 80/80
Endurance/Speed 75/79
Off.awerness/Def.awerness 80/60

I know it's just a game but still. Should he be higher overall?

I can't come up with numbers as my last NHL game (on a console) is a few years back, but he usually has a better wristshot than slapshot (he really shouldn't be at the point during PP), has a very good handeye/dekes control and is an above average skater for NA standards (speed). I don't know if you should add something to those attributes or lower the rest, but they should be prop. higher.

Henkka 01-22-2013 07:36 AM

I made him something like overall 75 player that he fits in the Top12 of Detroit forwards.

JimLaheyprobert 01-23-2013 01:47 PM

Does anyone else notice that brunner has trouble hitting the net, i know he shoots alot but it seems like he always shoots wide.

According to NHL.com Brunner has 15 shots on goal and only 2 missed shots
