It's pretty simple really. Brown plays his role every night, gives max effort on every shift and won't hesitate to drop the gloves while Eager rarely plays his role, gives max effort once every five games and never drops the gloves anymore (and for good reason). Brown is better at his job than Eager is, it's as simple as that.
When Eager is on, he's a much better player than Brown but he's rarely on.
Probably the best worded post in the thread. Well done. I think a lot of us can agree on this despite some differences of opinion.

Brown for sure has had a better workman like attitude. The only question was whether a desperate Eager would approach or exceed that based on the situation he finds himself in. I bet Eager would have a decent year if he landed somewhere.
