Agreed. The way the Pens played earlier this season also made every member of the defense look bad. He doesn't hit like he used to, but he does a lot of good things on the ice. We tend not to see the chances he takes away, only his mistakes.
Crosby and Malkin may be the big names, but IMO, this is Brooks' team.
