Do you see the word 'because' in that post? No. Now I can say 'Brunner isn't producing enough shots, and in addition to that, my eyes are telling me that he sucks'. Because that's what I believe. My eyes say he sucks, and the numbers are there, backing that notion up.
I agree with this. Let's be honest for a second, we keep saying Brunner is this player with all these skills, but if those don't translate into legitimate scoring opportunities...what's the point? It's like having a flashy car sitting in your garage without an engine. Tootoo may be a downgrade skill wise but at least he gives you the ability to create some grit plays. And I'm not under the notion that we need grit, but if you want to change the dynamic for a game this makes the most sense.
Also, maybe this is a message to Brunner that "yeah, your legs look great, but how about a little finish"
