I've been saying for years that Brown is at his most effective when he uses a high pressure forecheck and gets in passing lanes instead of trying to blast the opposition thru the boards.

The guy has great wheels - just one hell of a powerful skater. When he goes for the big checks he tends to slow down and hit after the puck has been released, which is all fine and dandy for us fans who like that kind of violence.

However, it rarely results in turnovers, and the theory that the opposition gets worn down and starts to short-arm pucks only really holds true in a long, grueling playoff series, and not individual regular season games.

Keep up the pressure Brownie, forget about the big booms...
