Bottom line, its basically the same. You value Brodin like lot of Penguin fans value Despres. I think its a fair question. They are both considered two-way, mobile defensemen with high ceilings. Despres is a future top pair D man who looked very good with Letang in Niskanen's absence and has play-off experience too boot, where he was maybe the best defender we had against the Flyers - and that includes Letang, Orpik, Martin, et al.
