Oh is that all he needs to do? Learn how to play defense? Should take a weekend seminar or something. Thanks for the heads up on the future, lets wait and see if he actually makes the nhl before saying he will lead the team for years.
Brisebois was a very good #3-4 who was forced into a top pair role because we didn't have anybody better at the time. He was a smart, skilled playeer but more in the current PMD mold, 15-20 years ago d-men had to be big and tough with a mean streak unless they were Ray Bourque or Paul Coffey. Guys like Derian Hatcher and Kyle Mclaren were good players who couldn't keep up with the current NHL pace.

Brisebois was often made the scapegoat because he was a long time member and a loacl guy, a bit like Darche...though Breezer had a bigger role.
