07:30 AM ET 10.01 | Slowly but surely -- he hopes, anyway -- Kings captain Dustin Brown is rounding into form. Brown was slowed at the end of last season by a knee injury that now requires a brace -- something the player who despises even tape on his body is working to find comfort with. "We're working to get a brace that's more customized," Brown said. "I've got to get used to it. With an injury like this, I've got to protect myself." Although Brown expects to play in the Kings' opener Thursday at Minnesota -- perhaps on a third line with Jarret Stoll and Trevor Lewis ? -- Kings Coach Darryl Sutter isn't making promises. "If we played tomorrow, he'd be a very rusty player," Sutter said. "It's not who you are or what you did, it's where you are now. This is not Hollywood."

I thought it might have been Stoll who was the rusty one after getting clocked and concussed by Torres in the playoffs.

So - he's the Tin Man?
