That being said, I dont care who he trades, whether it be Brass or Vermette, I just want a legit top 4 dman.
I agree, Vermette hasn't been great. He's picked it up a bit as of late, but pretty well the forward core spare maybe Prospal could do better. The other thing, is that Vermette has way too many years on his contract for other GM's to be comfortable I would think. Brassard is the obvious choice because of his offensive upside and age. He is being outperformed by a 19 year old.

Edit : Leek, I realize that. It wasn't meant to be taken entirely seriously, just to point out that Howson wasn't a mastermind on the deal. He paid for at least market value for Carter.
