[Signing] Tampa Signs Swiss Star Reto Suri

Recommended Posts

Can't see where the comparisons to Brunner are coming from (outside of the fact they are both Swiss and played for the same team),

Brunner was putting up points 3 times as much as Suri did in his last season in Switzerland.

Brunner had 57 points in 33 games, 1.73 points per game.

Suri had 25 points in 47 games, 0.53 points per game.

Don't see much of a comparison there.

Tampa is one of those teams that really lacks identity, and this signing really doesn't help. Slow, old d-core with some small forwards and Stamkos to round it all out. You'd think the years of tanking would have put them in a better position.

Anyways, I think he's Brunner 2.0. Maybe the Swiss league is worth scouting?

damn it! why don't they read these forums ;)


From someone who has seen him play, I would say the Damien Brunner comparisons are quite fair! I wish our management group had the balls to sign someone like this from overseas! on a 2 way deal it's hardly a big gamble!
