We have other players that provide us already with what Brown would if he were here. They may or may not be as good individually, but the sum of the parts is definitely greater. We have no one, outside of Jagr and possibly Briere, that is capable of providing top line goal scoring ability. Jagr may not be here next year, and Briere's game may have fallen off.
You should save your breath. Certain fans just cannot grasp the concept of team-building.

We are the Philadelphia Flyers. We have the Broad-Street Bullies moniker. If we add a bunch of gritty hard-working 2nd line wingers to our team, we will be the cup favorites. Period. And our team will be fun to watch because of the hitting and the cycling!!

Skilled players have no purpose in this game.
