Toffoli is coming
The problem isn't that we have Brown, it's that he's on the first line. I don't know how many times it's been mentioned here, but he plays his best hockey when he's playing simple north/south rumble/tumble. Having him up on the first line usually sees him trying to play out of his ability. The answer isn't to trade him away, it's to get somebody that can play up on the top line and allow him to settle into a roll on the 2nd or 3rd line. It would be nice if gagne or penner got the memo.
