How would you feel if Brown was traded?

His hits rarely separate the player from the puck and are often late leading to him coasting in on a late back check. Sure it's nice to physically break down the team throughout the game but that isn't the job of a top 6 unless scoring comes with it.
And to those praising Brown's scoring early in the season, the Kings needed goals the most in their last 25 or so games and Brown has been invisible. It's not just goals, it's quality goals he's lacking. Most average players can do well on the 1st line.
