He has one sexy mustache but as for player skill, a decent 4th liner who can fight and plays a hard game. Not the most talented player around but he plays with a lot of heart and likes the rough stuff but he'll fight and provide a spark
I will not get neither excited nor upset till I see the work in progress. Oiler fans are pretty pissed right now so, I understand the frustration. I just want him to kick the **** of the first ass hat that takes liberties with the top six. Ala, Chara answering the bell last night.
He is a good middle weight fighter who is a great skater, hits everything he can, will fight but does it at the right times for the sake of the team, doesn't take stupid penalties and is a decent penalty killer.
The two major drawbacks of Brown is his vision isn't very good and he has hands of stone which is why he'll never be anything more then a 4th line energy player.
Vision a poor man's Chris Neil and that is what you're getting with Brown.
Hordichuk can actually skate pretty well, not a problem with him. The problem is that Hordichuk isn't good enough to take on a regular shift and neither is Brown for what i've seen. Krueger is a pacifist as well so Brown will be on a short leash. If he takes any bad penalties, he'll be riding the pine for several games at least.
I will wait to see this guy in an Oiler jersey before I start crapping all over him (as some of you are wont to do). Bottom line is this team needed a shake up - even a minor one like this - and we've got it. If it isn't enough of a spark, more moves will come.
