My point was that guys keep talking about how active Brashear is in this league, and he's really not that active at all... The Ellis "fight" I'm not ripping him for, I said he did the right thing... But it's a goalie who never had a Penalty in his career before that... That's not exactly qualified as "active" is it? That was my point... And you couldn't really blame Ellis for being pissed, Cormier smoked him without warning. Brashear did the right thing but it hardly makes him active.
He's simply been a disgrace in that league. He jumps guys, suckers guys, and runs from guys. I mean hiding from Parker? Come on.
Who thought non NHL guys would beat him? That's crazy. I don't like him personally but he's one of the toughest in NHL history. Perhaps they questioned his heart? I think that's fair, but never his ability. Guy is one of the all time best.
