I like Brown with a puck possession guy like Drouin. Mainly because he plays a straight line game and that does nothing but generate space for Drouin to weave. Paquette did well with Drouin for that reason as well. Drive the D back or forecheck them so that there is space between the D and F. Drouin with even 1 foot more space is magic. I also think this is why Brownov worked with Namesy and Kucherov. His speed and puck pursuit created space for Kucherov and Namesy to work with.
