IMO Brassard is a bust. I do wonder sometimes what players like Brassard would have become if they were nurtured in a better organization.
To what I eluded to in my first post of this, I think (outside of the obvious turnover in coaches) Brass's development was actually handled better than most of our prospects had been until that point... He was returned to Junior, played a season in Syracuse, averaging well over a PPG, then made it to the league.

like I said, outside the coaching turnover, which is pretty commonplace in the league and I consider only a small portion of the reason he never really did pan out, even when we try to develop the right way, the organization can't quite get it right.
