The Hockey News Yearbook says Brown is #4. They have the big 3 all in the top 10 (of the top 50 NHLers) and Brown is #28 based upon goals and being among the NHL's tops in hits. If he can have a regular season even moderately approaching the playoff run, then he is #4. The Sedin hit and the SH goals were huge in getting the Kings rolling in round 1.

"I will say that Doughty was consistently the Kings best D in the post season"
