I agree that he looked better than Bomber; Bomber had a much better game against the Blues than he did against the Bruins.

Back to the Jimmy Mac/ Brookbank issue. I think that if we are going to dress an enforcer ( and I wouldn't mind if we had him at a healthy scratch against the less abrasive teams) I would have prefered Brookbank who in my opinion was a better skater. I think we kept JMac for his leadership and his locker room presence. Brookbank was/is clearly a better fighter and was quicker to jump to the defence of a team mate. Now that is not a knock against JMac. I am glad to have him on the team. At -10 with an ATOI of around 4 mins though, I would use him (and any other would be enforcer minimallly).
