Can someone explain why he's still the team captain?


Psst...Blues Goals Against has gotten lower since his return.

Just an FYI..

But please, continue blaming Brewer for the lack of offense since he's been back. (two points by Brew.)

I hate to do it, but I completely agree. Quit blaming everything on Brewer and look a the people that are actually responsible for our struggles.

Impossible. It'll never happen...

Brewer was aquired for Chris Pronger in a lame ass trade...indeed a very dark day in Blues history. Slap yourself if you think otherwise.

Brewer is cursed...if he signs another offer with the Blues willfully its sorta like 'self fulfilling prophecy' in that he would be willingly staying in a place where he is doomed to unfair comparison and scrutiny.

And then on top of that he is just (Frank) horrible. Take the time to go look at his +/- stats since coming here. Wow.

Its amazing nobody has assasinated his ass.

I'm not saying brewer isn't bad but he clearly isn't the reason we aren't scoring, which
is the reason we have been so bad this year.

the problem...

Even with the Blues scoring struggles...Brewer is not that good defensively, yet he's a defenseman wearing the 'C' as this team's Captain. What have you all seen that warrants Brewer being the Blues Captain? While the GAA are down, it isn't because of Brewer. It's because the Blues have two excellent goaltenders in Conklin and Mason. I still have yet to see Brewer assert himself in the Blues defensive zone taking charge like defensive Captains are supposed to do. Instead, he regularly backs in, doesn't stand up opponents, and seems to refuse to hit opponents when defending his own goal.

Let's judge the Blues Captain by his defensive play - which from what I've seen - still sucks. Please, go ahead and continue to make excuses. He's played 8 games and is -7. The only defenseman worse - his partner - Pietrangelo at -8 whose played one more game.

Johnson +3
Polak +4
Colaiacovo -4
Daryl Sydor +5 :aaaa:
Jackman +2
Strachan +4
Weaver +5

And all of them have played more games. So why is Brewer this team's captain given he's a defensive liability????

I forgot to add only one player was ahead of Brewer in terms of being negative in plus/minus last season before his injury and that was the forward, Brad Boyes.
(FRANK) the Kings!!!!
