Why do people keep thinking he is Malkin or Crosby?
Because he's playing on the wrong line, and that's not Brown's fault. If Brown played on the 3rd line all the time, where he belongs, he'd continue to put up the numbers he does and no one would have any issue with him because 3rd line guys aren't expected to have the skill of top 6 players.

Brown puts up consistent points every year and gives 100% every shift, but he's not a skill top 6 forward. He's just not, but the fact that his coach (and the GM given he's in charge of personnel) are constantly putting him in a top 6 role, he gets the microscope put on his overall skills.

Again, it's not Brown's fault he's playing where he is. He's being miscast.

Dean needs to bring in a top 6 winger so Brown can be effective in a 3rd line role.
