The difference is that Probert, Cochrane, Ray, and Odjick (4 notorious jersey shedders) fought to win while Brash fought not to lose.
Huge difference. How many times can you see Brashear grab onto a guy, throw a few noogies and then fall down or let the linesmen come in to stop it? Dozens and dozens. If he had a good advantage, he'd throw, if he didn't, he'd hug. That's fighting not to lose and it's lame and no one wants to watch that sh1t, it's boring.
Fighting to win shows heart, courage, and balls and while Brashear certainly had the balls, he didn't have the heart to take a good punch most of the time, he was afraid to get hit and avoided certain guys his whole career, guys with power like Twist. he only took on Chris Simon
one time his whole career? Really? How is that even possible? Never found Twister in a game??
Seems fishy to me but it's not hard to figure out, Brash fought not to lose. curious that he found Probert 7 or 8 times in their career but never Twist? Simon and Shelley only once each? Couldn't ever locate Stu Grimson
but found Tie Domi
I don't know what all that means but it's very odd which describes Donald Brashear
The guy is just an odd duck, he really is.
