Brule shows he's got the right stuff

Nicole Burns, Hamilton, Ont.

Gilbert Brule, welcome finally to the NHL.

I have followed Brule ever since his dominant days as a Vancouver Giant in the Western League.

He was once deemed the "WHL's version of Sidney Crosby."

Brule was a high draft pick, but was lost once playing in Columbus. I was sad to see he was dropped to the minors two seasons ago.

But since being picked up by the Oilers, Brule's star is finally beginning to shine.

Thank you, Pat Quinn and Steve Tambellini, for taking Brule.

His game is getting back on track and I can’t wait to see how he finishes this season.
