He's immature.

Brown is a great captain. The guy never takes shifts off, always plays 100%. If goalies could wear the C I think Quick would be a great one, but that can't happen. Everyone needs a player like Brown, whether people like him or not.

Yeah, and that's BS. And it's not like Backes is an innocent boy either. I seem to remember him running over Justin Williams well after he scored an empty net goal and was a defenseless player. Part of the problem here is that people think other players on other teams are dirty when they have guys on their team who would do the same **** without question if it meant they would win. 90% of players in the NHL would. And then everyone complains about a suspension when it actually happens and the guy makes a hit that he thinks is the best thing for his team. That makes no sense to me, this is a physical league with players allowed to hit each other. That's just hockey. You won't see me complaining about that Perron hit because I don't care if Penner got elbowed. That's playoff hockey.
