If not he stays in Hartford all year and then they either throw him on re-entry again or make a deal with a KHL squad(crosses fingers)
Why would Brashear be picked up by a team if he were re-called after the trade deadline? The playoff rosters already set then and teams out of the playoffs (all 3 of them), probably don't want a veteran enforcer stuck on their roster for next season. And once the season ends, the Rangers have to put him back on their NHL roster and can't send him back down to the AHL until after training camp in Sept.
Any way you slice it, it was a horrible signing by Sather.
