Yeah I've always liked him from the get go, I think we on the boards all agreed that he wasn't #1C material when he was asked to play that role, and we pretty much agreed that he wasn't better than Grabovkski as a #2C, and based on Burkies bottom 6 philosophy, he didn't fit that number 3C role, even though he could fill that out well.

So for a while he was under the bus a little bit, but now we see how valuable that free agent college pick up is turning out to be

I think that means you can watch it on game center for free if I'm not mistaken

Perfect night to sit Orr, let's see how it would look playing a team with Carkner and Boulton in the line up. Where's all the heros that claimed brown could do the fighting?

Brown has proven that he can handle pretty much anyone and do a decent job of it.

You never sit Orr at all in reg season. The guy has fought the biggest hw on the NHL and dropped him to a knee, and had a great showing against a guy he's struggled with badly in the past in Engelland. Tonight will be another tough night, odds are he fights another one of the games elite hw. The effort Orr has put in to his resurgence as a player is admirable. His heart has never been questioned. He's looked good this far this year also, with the exceptions of a few shifts getting pinned in their own zone.

not sure where to put this, but as the biggest Komi hater around, I'm a gonna give him some credit - he's looked like a legit bottom pairing defenseman so far this year.

here's some islander thoughts coming
Quote:
Nichuskin, JVR, Kulemin, Lupul (when he's not injured), Frattin (if he takes the expected jump) paired with Kessel, Grabo, Kadri could be deadly. Small shifty skilled centers supplemented with big terrifying skilled wingers.

NO Brown could not handle anyone, that's just a leafs myth that some leaf fans spew out as actual fact. He lost to Prust opening night. He is a above average middle weight, but against the big boys hed get tossed. Brown does not intimidate the other team, but Orr makes the other team think twice before doing something stupid. Orr is one of the best fighters in the NHL, and so far this season he has been a decent forth liner. I love having him on the team! Gives our guys some balls we didnt have last year.

Big game for the Leafs tonight.


Any word on confirmed lines yet? Personally I think you gotta keep JVR with Grabo, so that means one of Mac, Kulemin, or Frattin slots into the top line.

You can't look past any opponent in this league and the Islanders are no exception. They always give us a run for our money, especially Matt Moulson.

So hopefully they can limit the scoring chances once again.
Bingo! I told a friend before pens game, these two games will give us a good tell on how legit this team is, a team that is so easy to get up for and a team that you can get your guard down.

Hoping for the best.

Should be an easier game than Pittsburgh, but can't take them lightly.

Well you're talking about a whole different class right there which I'm not including Brown in. Just saying if we didn't have Orr(I'm glad we do), Brown is a capable enforcer. How many teams have these heavy-weights like Orr, McGratton etc? Not many. It does give you an edge in some scenarios. If the other team wants to throw down, they know they'll have to deal with one of the best in the business. Still can't believe he took on Scott, that man has balls the size of Jupiter.

That was Mark Fraser.

Mike Brown fought Brandon Prust in Montreal.
