Brunner Not Likely Returning

LeBrun just said on Free Agent Frenzy show (TSN 2.)

Thinks he is leaving Detroit for sure.

Dreger still thinks Detroit is likely landing spot for Weiss.

What if Brunner gets 4 years 16m? This is his chance for a big pay day, good luck.

Eh, Brunner was a nice addition for nothing but cap space. But I can't see getting too worked up over him leaving. Same deal as Hudler IMO, nice complimentary piece but certainly not a guy who is a difference maker.

Have a strange feeling Brunner gets overpaid in the open market...didn't know what it would've cost to keep him so can't kill Kenny on this one. You have to make room for Tatar somehow.

Apparently he's attracting a ton of interest and likely too expensive for the wings at this point.

Good. I don't think Brunner is all that good. I'd rather have Alfredsson for one year that this guy.

Best GM in SPORTS!

Can't wait for the 4 years 12M Cleary deal.

Lots of Detroit talk off the hop on TSN Free Agent frenzy.

Guys saying the Wings have a new 4 year 'Datsyuk window.'

Agreed with above, Brunner is afraid of his own shadow.

If he gets five million for 3-4 years from another team, i can't blame Holland.

If he gets 3.5 million for three years from another team...Holland should be fired.

Agreed. Someone will regret his contract soon.

What did you see in him that he is worth 3.5 mil a year.

The whole TSN panel just said Elias was our #1 target in Free Agency.

Saw that. Ken Holland has a thing for 37+ year old players. I'm sure that he's called Roenick 4 or 5 times the past couple times every time he sees him on TV.

yeah, i would have liked to keep him for a reasonable number. but i bet the salary he'll get is a lot.

at least i'm confident in one of our prospects to score 20+ next season too.

Fil says he's a #1 center and thus wants #1 center money. Adios.
