He's largely invisible, excepting when he makes a stupid mistake.
I look at things with objective eyes. Stats are objective. He has consistently allowed 3+ goals/60min TOI at even strength (that's horrible). I don't want to hear that he plays against opponents top lines. A statistician will tell you that will only skew the numbers slightly over the course of a season. Go email Tom Awad at the Puck Prospectus and get his GVT rating (a value versus replacement metric) since he's been with the Blues. That is as OBJECTIVE a rating as you can possibly get. Barret Jackman has averaged a GVT of about 3 over the past two seasons (meaning his value over a replacement translates to an increased goal differential of 3 over the entire length of the season, about the value of a #4-5 defenseman), and I guarantee you that Brewer's GVT is lower than that.
I have watched Brewer play, and my evaluation only confirms the statistical analysis. What are you basing your evaluation on?
Mine is not expecting him to be Chris Pronger.
I watch what he does. I see him objectively and I like what I see for the money he costs.
Are we supposed to put a lot of value on the opinion of a guy with multiple Curtis Sanford jerseys?
Game worn jersey as well, if I am not mistaken.
