A Great Column Regarding the Real Donald Brashear

Postby JansenFan » Tue May 05, 2009 11:10 am

Wow, this is an outstanding look at Donald Brashear the man, not the hockey player. It really gives you insight into what makes Brashear the player he is, how he got there, and where all the aggression comes from.

Kudos to Mike Wise for finding this story and putting all the pieces together to make it work.
RIP 21

You bet. Its not often you get that in-depth a look at what makes a player really tick. It was reminiscent of an article Jody Foldesy wrote about Jon Jansen in like 2003 or 2004 in the Times.
