On an assertion that Brown’s performance last season was “par for the course”:

I’ll just tell you, it was a career year. It wasn’t ‘par for the course.’ He’s a 20-goal scorer. So 18 in 48 is what?…You couldn’t do it over the course of his career. He’s almost 30 years old. He’s a borderline 20-goal scorer. So if he scores 20 and plays the whole game…then you’ve got a player. Part of getting Marian Gaborik onto this [team], it sorts it out. It puts Brownie where he should be. It puts Carts in where he’s not being overloaded. That part of it. Don’t expect anything more out of Dustin Brown. It’s based on how you played last night and how you play tomorrow night in this league…When you don’t have a veteran team, you need your veterans. It’s not ‘captains.’ You need your veterans to be great examples for your group. Otherwise you’re going to have trouble with your ice time.

-LA Kings head coach Darryl Sutter on Dustin Brown.  More from Sutter after practice today by Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider.
