from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,
...as the Devils struggle through a difficult road trip in western Canada, Brunner has been one of the bright spots. Entering tonight’s meeting with the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome, Brunner leads the Devils with three goals and is tied with Marek Zidlicky as the club’s scoring leader.
So why did the Detroit Red Wings not re-sign him and why did Brunner go all summer without a contract before the Devils invited him to training camp on a tryout?
“I have no idea. We’ve really added scoring to our team,” general manager Lou Lamoriello said with a look of satisfaction.
“We liked him in Detroit. We talked to him right at free agency. When he didn’t sign, we asked him to come to camp. We told him if he came to camp and made the team we would treat him the right way. He came and earned everything.”
