Well this can be debated either way. He is a good 3rd line center, because his offensive playmaking abilities are very limited. A good 2nd line center should have playmaking abilities and be able to handle the defensive abilities. His weakness can be masked a tad on the current 2nd line with Williams being the primary playmaker. If you were to put Brown on that line, and you would probably see where Stolls weakness as a 2nd line center lies.
Nobody is saying he is bad, and he has played well..but if we lose williams, im scared to see the output with a different linemate.
