What's going on with Eric Brewer. I've always liked this guy.
Last year, he was your go-to guy back there. He was your #1 guy even strength and on special teams. I thought he had a pretty good year.
This year, he's on the 2nd PP behind Staios and Bergeron and he hardly plays on PK. He's got the worst +/- of any defenceman on the team and the 2nd fewest points behind Ferguson.
I don't mean this as a bash against Brewer because, like I said, I really like the guy. I'm just curious as to what's going on. Thanks.
He's going through a big slump...kindda like Salo. But the past few games the seem to have turned it around, I know watching the game against the Sens, Brewer looked way better, he seemed to pick the right time to pinch.
When it rains it pours. Last night against Ottawa after a giveaway up the middle Ferarro went on and on about the bad play Brewer made. Cross actually made the play.
I thought Brewer played his best game in a while. Now if only he'd use his defensive partner more effectively, like passing him the puck. Brewer passes less to his partner than any other defenseman,preferring to dump the puck along the boards.
