So I guess Brunner is going to have to accept a PTO?

Well I'm glad he's taking his sweet time deciding instead of thinking about those eagerly awaiting his decision. How rude.

Wish we were able to bring him back. Sign him for 1M for 1 year & role 3 scoring lines.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelkader
Franzen-Weiss-Alfredson
Nyquist-Andersson-Brunner
Tatar-Helm/Emmerton-Miller
Eaves-Bertuzzi

Is great, though I guess he'd be redundant. Whoever gets him will get a great offensive player who has a good work ethic & a non stop motor. Though he's at times a perimeter player & he does need to be protected defensively he'll be well liked where ever he goes.

I dont think Brunner is going to get the 3.5 he is rumored to be seeking.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Brunner end up in the KHL.

Eh Gordon is a great 4th line C but I think on 3rd line you'll be disappointed

Gordon has played third line minutes at even strength pretty much his entire career and has typically been about an even player despite hardly scoring at all. He was brought in to be a defensive guy on the third line and to anchor the penalty kill - he won't be disappointing in that role given that he's succeeded in it his entire career.

As for Brunner, I wouldn't be shocked if Omark could put up comparable numbers to his previous season if he was given a similar opportunity.

It's the only way we could sign him & our RFAs

He's not coming back anyways so it's a moot point. He apparently didn't like his role in the playoffs & we have youth coming up that can provide 80-100% of the same offence while being better defensively.
