I certainly wouldn't say Brown is a much better fighter than McIver. While Brown has looked decent at times (mostly in the minors) overall he's been brutal at this level. McIver certainly isn't the toughest guy but at least he's willing to exchange punches. That being said, I do think both teams win in this trade. Brown and what he can bring to the table is probably more valuable to the Ducks than McIver was. And on the flip slide, Brown wasn't playing for the Canucks and they add a player to their roster they didn't want to lose to begin with.
