Nashville Predators Need Scoring: Damien Brunner

It’s no mystery that the Nashville Predators need more scoring. After only putting the puck in the net 111 times last season the Predators need to add a top 6 forward. Damien Brunner could be the perfect fit. Brunner put up 26 points in 44 games as a member of the Detroit Red Wings last year. Brunner’s 26 points would have made him  the second leading point scorer on  the Predators roster.                                                                                                             

Born: March 9, 1986 (age 27)

Height: 5′ 10″

Weight: 176 lbs

Brunner is a question mark, but given the glimpses of goal-scoring ability he showed last season and the lack of offensively gifted players around the league, you’d figure some general manager would take a chance on him. (From The Detroit News)

Brunner’s salary demands are  high. “He was seeking a multi-year deal worth around $3.5 million a season. (mlive.com)” That is a high price tag for the unproven forward, but  I think he would fit nicely with the Predators.  It has been rumored that Detroit offered Brunner $2.5 million a year.  In addition to his seemingly high salary demands ; Brunner’s slump of 2 goals in 25 games may be making some teams stay away from the 27-year-old. If Brunner remains unsigned he will most likely return to Switzerland to play next season. In today’s NHL players seem to have more control, and options than ever before.
