This is kind of what I was saying. When Brewer is paired with a good defensive defenseman who can make up for Brewers defensive lapses, this makes Brewer better. Does it have to do with it being someone Brewer is comfortable with? Maybe but I think it utimately comes down to someone who can make up for his mistakes.
