I'm not sure if a bad skater has ever done better than Brunette has. Amazing career.
thought he quit years ago

Congrats to him. He had a heck of career. Was always a Canuck killer too.

Bruno ended Patrick Roy's career and still made me like him when he played for us. Good luck to him.

Don't remember any player in Avs history who had better chemistry with Joe Sakic than Bruno.

Was one of the first hockey players I ever witnessed live! Back when I was 5-6 living in Maine, he used to be a great player for the Portland Pirates. I was always impressed with his ability to get to the net, albeit as slow as possible.

Happy retirement Andrew! Congrats on a great career!

Brunette had a highly respectable career. He could probably have had even better numbers and a cup if he hadn't spent most part of it playing for expansion teams.

Always a Minnesota favorite. He was always funny to watch, as he was so damn slow, yet somehow always racked up the points.

He can't be any slower than Allison!

How slow would a Brunette-Allison-Andreychuk line be?
