I know it's not your statement, but to me the difference is that knuble had a very high hockey-IQ and a calmness to his game to compensate for his loss of athletisism, which I'm afraid Brouwer doesn't have, yet! That's why I think Brouwer hasn't clicked so well with Ovi&Nicky.

I still wouldn't mind trying Ovechkin with Ribeiro, or atleast put Wolski on the first line, because Mojo is turning the puck over every time they try to get a cycle going.

Ovechkin-Ribeiro-Wolski (favorable O-zone starts)
Laich-Backstrom-Brouwer (good two-way line)
Chimera-Johansson-Ward (checking line)
Hendricks-Beagle-Crabb (energy line)
