I like what I've seen, but I just haven't seen enough to be excited about this.
Such is the new NHL. I don't care for it much, but guys are going to get paid for potential. If you don't adhere to that philosophy, you're going to have a lot of problems keeping your team together in the future.

I love this deal. Of Brass, Filatov, and Voracek, Brassard will be the best IMHO, assuming he can stay healthy (which admittedly, is a more of an if than I'd care to admit)

And ****, if Jeff Finger is worth a 3.5 million cap hit, Brassard is fine at 3.1 mil.
