I attend all the home games so perhaps you’re not getting a full view on TV, but Brewer is constantly standing around, turned inside-out, or completely out of position and search for the puck. He’s clearly struggling with the speed of the game right now.
It’s not his play with the puck that’s bothering me (he’s always been overrated at that)
Are you watching the other defensemen with the same microscope? Everyone of the blues dman makes the same 'mistakes'.
And I really could care less if Brewer stays or goes...I just think people are quick to blame him for everything when he's played pretty well.
We'll just have to agree to disagree.
If leading the team on the negative side of plus/minus is good, how do you define bad? Yes, it's one stat. But that's even strength goals against with that defeneseman on the ice. He's been directly responsible for at least 3 of them with bad defensive decisions. How is it he's not there when the puck stays in the offensive zone in even strength situations? He plays enough, it should balance out. Yet it doesn't. Win-Loss record was very good pre-Brewer this season and has gone south since his return. last season win-loss record was so-so with Brewer, then took off once he was injured. Coincidence the team wins more without him in two separate seasons???? I doubt it.
