It's early but they're on pace for 246 points between them.
Hudler - 4GP 2G 3A
Filppula - 3GP 1G 1A
Brunner - 4GP 3G 1A
I definitely wouldn't have minded holding onto Brunner.
Yeah didn't Brunner pretty much sign with New Jersey, For about the same amount that Detroit offered. What was up with that.
I noticed Brunner has 3 goals already. Oh, well at least we have Cleary
he wanted a guaranteed top6 spot.
I also believe he was holding out for a better deal, which didn't come, so he settled much later for a similar contract with better minutes.
He must have thought he would have more offers.. he isn't playing in the top 6 according to this..
true. he wasnt worth any more than we offered. hopefully he changes that this season.
the game i watched he was zajacs wing and was playing top pp unit.
edit: seems he has been getting a mix of 2/3rd line minutes. i stand corrected.
I watched a bit of the NJ Edmonton game.. he seemed to be on the ice a lot I wish we still had him!
Yeah that's right, He wasn't guaranteed top6 minutes in Detroit.
Same here, I still say that he would have brought way more to the table then Cleary.
Don't worry, everybody says that.
Brunner and Hudler will be easily replace with Nyquist and Tatar. Flip wonted too much money. Happy for those 3 , but we should move on
Don't understand hate for Cleary. Line Cleary-Anderson- Bert is going to surprise many of you this year
When they start putting up points on a semi-regular basis and aren't awful defensively as a unit, I'll have blown right past surprised and into "completely stunned" territory.
You're absolutely right. It's way too early.
Or they might make history as worst plus minus 4th line of all time?
They are on a pretty good pace so far.
Right to bad that Nyquist-Andersson-Tatar would be far better then what Babcock is giving us now.
Let's not forget the reason we got rid of Hudler and Flip. It wasn't because they couldn't produce points. It's that they weren't effective game changers. They don't spark their lines. They benefit from their lines. I'm assuming that's the case here. These guys aren't guys you rely on to carry your team. I'll eat crow when they're in the playoffs and making victory possible for their teams.
it will revers starting today
Flip was a fit issue - we needed a true #2C, and Weiss is that.
Brunner we should have kept - dumb move by Holland, IMO.
4/4 for Hudler was about $1M high and a year longer than the Wings would have offered. He was also terribly inconsistent and other things which I can't remember but I know I was totally on board with him leaving (and still am).
Brunner is the only move I disagreed with.
None of the 3 were "core" guys, and kinda priced themselves out of town. I wouldn't have cared if we kept one of the 3 for our wing depth, but also don't really mind that they walked. We have Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, etc. on the way who will hopefully provide at least the same impact, ideally even more than what we got from these 3.
Brunner should have been brought back. It's inexcusable that the Wings went with Cleary.
Don't care about Flip and Hudler. I would have traded them at the deadline. Wings weren't contending with them on the roster. Just more bad roster management by Ken Holland.
