Brassard and Clowe's goals have been legitimate hockey goals, and Brassard in particular is showing a lot of offensive flair and awareness. We're talking about a high pick whose been a consistent 40+ point player and proven he's ready for the NHL over the past few years. He's 25 now, and clearly an NHL ready player, and it's been speculated in several past seasons that a change of scenery could do him good. So far, he looks like a great passer, which was always supposed to be his strength and, like I said, he's already proven he can be a 40+ point player in the NHL. Miller will still be lucky to max out as a 40+ point player right now. It's a lot more realistic to get excited and think that Brassard can benefit from the change of scenery than it would be to get carried away with expectations for an 18 year old Miller. It's also a lot more realistic to expect that Clowe can bounce back to his 20+ goal form, since he was there not too long ago and had been have an uncharacteristically bad season.

mpf. some people just need to be debbie downer's
