Neither was good - not debating that. I was just responding to your initial post that Brown is the only glaring problem at forward - a false statement.

Playing on the first line is not the same thing as being a first line forward. In no way should the expectations for Brown be the same as Kopitar. The expectations of him as a captain are different and is not really measurable by us fans. But even then, should we expect more of Ellerby than Voynov just because Keaton is on the first pairing? Or should we expect more of Matt Greene than Doughty or Mitchell just because he's an assistant captain? Of course not.
