He was no more than a soft 4th line pylon when he played and now he's the "expert" on RDS!?! He mumbles and bumbles when trying to speak and repeats himself all the time. He's worse than Yvon Pednault and makes it unbearable to watch the games on RDS. Yes Sergei had some bad penalties... I think we got the message the 23rd time he said that if he was coach, Sergei wouldn't be playing. Lats stands to the side of the net and is praised for being there... but having done nothing.
Is he on a one-year contract?
He may not be good on TV (and Murray Wilson mumbles his way through radio broadcasts) but your assessment of Brunet as a player is utterly ridiculous. He was a very smart player with good positional sense and he had scoring ability. His PPG of
in the regular season and
in the playoffs is comparable to Carbonneau's
. Unfortunately, Brunet was injury prone, which kept him from doing better offensively.
