Why is Paul Brown not playing for Milwaukee? Is he in the ECHL or is he injured, or what? He can't just be a healthy scratch game after game.
He's not injured, but the answer is still the same as when you asked this question a month ago. He's a role player on a VERY deep team, right now. He'll get his chance, but he's got to be patient. In the meantime, he needs to sit back and absorb professional hockey.
Why not assign him to an ECHL team so he can at least get some playing time? Or do they want to keep him close so he stays out of trouble?
That's mostly correct, I think. The Predators don't have an ECHL affiliate, so he'd have to be loaned to a team...and the Preds would have next to no idea as to what he was doing and how he was doing it. He's in the best place he can be right now. Milwaukee has a lot of older character guys (Hrkac, Tiley) and a few younger guys that can be a steadying influence on young Mr Brown(Gamache, Segal, Hamhuis, Hutchinson). His time will come.
How's Paul Brown's fighting skills? Poor, good, great?
decent. i don't know how familiar you are with Jeremy Stevenson, but he's practically his clone. Fearless...sometimes to a fault. He's still with Milwaukee, but has some injury and has thus been scratched most of the season.
