So... we give up one of our better defensive defensemen and team leaders, and our former Calder Trophy frontrunner (prior to injury) #1 center... for an unsigned RFA second line center, an unsigned RFA third line center, and $5.5mil of otherwise reasonably decent two-way defenseman.

I'll grant that it's better than most deals for one of the Big Four (in that it shows at least some vague awareness of team needs), but it's still not gonna happen. If you want Brassard, you overpay.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
