What? Where did that come from?

It was a joke.

If we're going to take it seriously though, it could be worse. If Brassard turns into the new Modin, that sucks, but he'll still have value. I'd rather have 30 games of Modin because he's injured instead of 30 games of Backman because he sucks.

If you don't think he'd have any value if he gets injured again this year (or next year) just look at Leclaire. This deal isn't so outrageous that it's an untradeable contract. I'd rather have him signed to this deal rather than to have a PPG pace all season, be signed to $4+ million and THEN get injured again. We could go in circles about those scenarios all day.
