Editor’s Note: Welcome to Part II of Friend of RMNB and certified dancing queen Ben Scarbro’s investigation into what the Brouwer Rangers will do now that Troy Brouwer is no longer a Washington Capital.
Yesterday, I proved to you a bunch of things you can’t argue with because I wrote this article a week ago and it’s too late to change my mind. And you don’t need to pay a translator to see that I’m right (and yes that’s a non sequitur and a call back to like 2012).
By that, I mean that I narrowed down the list of players the Brouwer Rangers may select as their next target object of praise to a manageable six. To recap: We eliminated defensemen and goalies (because the Brouwer Rangers seem to prefer goal-scoaring ability) plus any forwards who either won’t get enough playing time or who represent to significant a commitment in terms of contract length and size. That left us with Jay Beagle, Brooks Laich, Justin Williams, Evegeny Kuznetsov, T. J. Oshie, and Andre Burakovsky.
