I think that this is a good move. As everyone has said, there is a bit of risk involved, but I think it is a risk worth taking. If Brassard comes out this season and puts up numbers all year like he was on track for last year, his market value would have skyrocketed when it was time to re-sign him. If Brassard turns into a bust, we have bigger problems anyway considering that he is expected to be a big part of the "future" of the CBJ. Also, I am not so worried about his health considering the shoulder was a bit of a fluke injury, which he sustained while performing an aspect of the game outside of his realm: fighting. As long as he keeps the gloves on, I do not think this will be a problem.
