Agent Neil Sheehy who represents free agent forward Damien Brunner recently told a Swiss newspaper his client is prepared to wait for as long as it takes to find the right NHL deal.

Sheehy claimed there are NHL teams interested in the 27-year-old and remains confident his client will play in the NHL this coming season.

Sheehy also dismissed speculation Brunner's salary demands are hampering efforts to find a new contract insisting the he wants to play where he'll get the best opportunity. It's been rumored Brunner who has only one season of NHL experience is seeking a multi-year deal worth more than $3 million per season.

The report speculated Colorado Anaheim Phoenix Dallas or Buffalo were potential destinations but the Avalanche are top-heavy at forward while the Ducks won't have room for Brunner if they sign Selanne.

Dallas and Buffalo could use depth on the right side while Phoenix needs a top-six left winger.
