It seems pretty likely that Dustin's going to get a good look in that role this year.

It's easy to forget how young he is, but I'm always a little dissapointed in his finishing instincts at the NHL level. By that I mean there's no burning desire to bury the puck, ala Cammalleri.

But Brown's obviously got the tools (heh), and Shanahan would be a great mentor for him.

As far as Frolov and Conroy go... They play different roles than Brown on the PP, and they're not really PP specialists anyway.

Conroy has 20 career PPG and Frolov's probably never going to be terribly effective unless he's willing to park in front and get his nose dirty. Really dirty. Like Smyth and Holmstrom dirty.

Anyone can rack up PP assists by dishing to Demitra then watching him set up Lubo for the one-timer.
