And for a terrible player, Stewart managed to score 9 goals. I don't think these players are the pile of hot garbage that y'all seem to need to make them out to be. I just don't understand this board's fascination with bagging on players...
Not killing penalties doesn't mean that Brent doesn't kill penalties? I get that he used to, but come on. Right now he's just a wannabe top 6 player taking PP time away from better players.

I'm not a Brent hater...but some people think he's a good signing. He's not.

In what way is he a wannabe top-6 player? With Sutter gone he seems like the most clear-cut bottom-6 fixture we have...

IIRC, he's getting PP time for the same reason that LaRose is. Muller's PP requires a certain handedness in the PP units and LaRose and Brent were the only ones on the team that fit that mold.

And frankly, again IIRC, they had success working the PP like that, so I'm not going to complain.

In that while he has been with the Hurricanes he's been more of a PP option than a guy known for his PK, forechecking, or PIM. He definitely doesn't fit the mold of a prototypical 4th liner. I think he's part of the problem on our 4th line, as was Stewart.

Wasn't he only getting PP time by virtue of being one of the few right handed forwards on the team?

Yes.

That's why (probably) LaRose beats Tlusty out on the second PP unit in practice today.
