How did Brule look? I wasn't at the last game. Did he play on both sides of the ice? How was he defensively?
I actually really enjoy watching Brule play....hustles a ton and isnt afraid to throw a hit. He also has a better hockey sense in the offensive zone that i did not expect. I think he will have a solid finish to the year in Tip's system.
His ability has never been the problem. Health and consistency are the concern. He has probably had many stretches of games in which he looked like a tiny Doan. They've just been too few and too far between. That's his game, though, when he can play it.
