The young forward could be in for a long year without some level of protection if they are not inclined to handle it themselves.I'm not advocating Brookbank strictly on what I've seen and heard so far from training camp but I just feel this team is missing that element..... much like last year. - thoughts?
Nice to see I'm not the only one who feels this way.

There's nobody other than Brookbank among the forwards who is even close to being tough or willing to stick up for a teammate. They will be pushed around again this year and the situation won't be addressed because our new coach, like our last one, likes a soft team and it seems our GM does as well.
