5 games, 9 points over here in Switzerland. Playing far better than his linemate Linus Omark.
They tie the 1 place with 11 points each and plays in the same line.(brunner 2 less games)Brunner had also a 5 point game in a big win.
That brunner plays better then omark is something you made up your self(proswiss), what i heard from fans and read in the news is omark the best player in the team and creating offence almost every shift out there. But swiss leauge doesnt says to much what nhl success you have in the future.For omark its good to get massive toi and build up his confident after last seasons footinjury and pressboxing.I think some other nhl teams is willing to take a shot at him and we in the oilers got something back in return.
Brunner has proved himself in switzerland for 3 years now and last year he was in the top of points, hes a late bloomer and certainly worth a look.could be intresting to watch if they run a omark zetterberg Brunner line when Z comes there.
But you're finding that it's hard to kill something you've started.
I only brought up Hudler in reference to the fact that signing Brunner - a maybe from the Swiss league - helped push him out of town. I ultimately think signing Brunner is good, and that the Bertuzzi signing was a bad idea. But I was trying to keep any Hudler related talk within the context of the Brunner signing. As per the fact that this is a BRUNNER SIGNING thread.
I'm not the one who dragged it off into "Let's talk about Jiri, baby" land.
