When Brewer is on top of his game, hitting, skating, dekeing, I'll take him over Niinimaa. We havent seen it much though, but the rest of the team is just as guilty. I'm hoping this time off will give them time to think.

Or mabye I'm bias since Brewer plays for the Oilers and Niinimaa not.
Agreed. It is VERY tough. Niinimaa had Hamrlik and Mirnov to learn from. Brewer has..... Brewer. I think when Lowe was coaching him that helped him ALOT. But as you said, when playing their VERY best - I take Brewer easily over Niinimaa. Brewer on his good games reminds me of Blake - VERY TOUGH, is great at joining or leading a rush, and won't get caught because of his great speed. But on his bad days Brewer looks like any 24 year old who has big expectations and is suffering growing pains.
