I would add that he played his best hockey when he got back from Colorado, the year Gainey shut down the haters, Brisebois was having a very good camp showing a willingness to pay the price, what we barely saw in the past and I was personally very happy to see Gainey to do this cause I felt this time the boos were totally undeserved..
I agree but I've also come to the realization that physical play on a long period of time will eventually turn on you and in order to play 1000+ games you have to adjust yourself somehow, sure it gives a good show but what if a guys like ovy and crosby played a little more reserved... they might have both had more productive years in 11-12.
