So I'm curious, those who say he's not a true number 1, show me what a NON-hall of famer number one is, or do you have to be a future hall of famer to be a true number one?
When Brew's paired with the right kind of partner, he's a much better player because he only has to do so much.
The bottom line he isn't a # 1 or # 2 guy and is forced to play that role. As long as he is, he will get the scrutiny that comes with it. He will never thrive under that scrutiny. At least not in St. Louis where fans are used to having a legitimate #1 defensemen (or two).
So..I'm curious...aside from Future Hall of Famers...I'd like to know what the others ones are. This goes back to my point about how St. Louis fans don't know what a number one is. They know what a future hall of famer is.
There's this amazing thing that the NHL created for hockey fans, oh, 10 years ago called Center Ice. The cool thing about it is that if you subscribe, you actually get to watch other teams. You should check it out.
More logical fallacies...ahhh...the ad hominem attack.
The vast majority of Blues fans are just that, Blues fans. They are NOT hockey fans. Worcerster played a game in St. Louis a few years back and no one showed.
Nice try though.
Center Ice was great for me when I had the time to devote weekends and large portions of my free time to it. Now that NHL-Net shows Hockey Night In Canada, I'm good.
