I can't really put a finger on it, as to why, but it seems other than Kaner, new wingers seem to have trouble adapting their play to Toews. Even Sharp and Toews seem to be out of sync without Kane there. It is too early to say but maybe Brunette will be the exception, and they will click playing together. Brunette's ability to get those goals from in close, have emerged already as a Hawk and Stan looks like a genius by picking him up... so far that is.
He's everything we've needed for our powerplay unit, but the reason he has trouble synching up with Toews and Sharp is because the play is 100 feet ahead of him all the time. Would suggest playing Frolik there, but the third line is just too good to break up right now.
