I don't see it that way. Your specific comment was that Brouwer contributes nothing at es. 13 goals at even strength and good for 4th on the team isn't nothing. Sure Backstrom and Kuznetsov may well score 13 goals or more at even strength this season but you appear to dismiss out of hand that quality play from either of those players on an even strength line with Brouwer would tend in increase his goal production. In fact skating with Kuznetsov at center might be the only step necessary to elevate Brouwer's goal totals to 30+. again....13 es goals is contributing something. something by definition is not nothing.
