Brunette has consistently been handed prime PP real estate and prime linemate, and yes he most certainly does produce adequately. I just happen to think that a rebuilding team handing those two things to a veteran that is nearing retirement instead of to someone with potential, that we actually control, is one of the dumbest things we could do.
Relax, he would have been on the SECOND PP UNIT, not the first. Also, he is still a very servicable top 6 player, clearly good enough to crack Chicago's lineup and replace Brouwer and Kopecky. Really not sure why you're hating on the guy but he's a respected vet who has been consistent his whole career. I don't care how he gets his points. Bottom line is, Murray obviously felt he wouldn't fit in here or he could have been had. Or maybe he made an offer and Brunette instantly turned it down.
