Last Season with Brewer: .91ppg
Last Season w/o Brewer: 1.20ppg
This Season with Brewer: .96ppg
This Season w/o Brewer: 1.17
I generally would say that one player's affect on a team isn't enough to make that big of a swing. But Brewer does play 20+ minutes a night, a significant amount, and is a -22 in 40 games over the last 2 seasons. Considering that 3 of the 4 wins that the Blues have had since Brewer's injury have been by one goal, I'm not positive that his absence hasn't played a part in helping the Blues win.
How am I supposed to be the forum's lone staunch Murray supporter with people posting statistics like that?????????
