Brassard - top 9 center, playmaker...I'm still unclear about how he would handle the wing if we would use him with Kesler.

Savard - a prospect I must have been overvaluing, or is merely expendable with the changes/additions to Columbus' roster this off season. I had him at similar value to Schroeder, but I will be the first to admit I know little about the BJ's prospects.

Boll - Bottom 6 winger, fiesty, can hit, can fight, can take a regular shift. Ideally a partner in crime with Volpatti, Kassian and/or Lapierre. He adds little value, but he fills a role.

Mason - A backup/cap dump. He holds no value to me under these circumstances, and his inclusion was at the behest of Jacket's fans, as he would be redundant as a 3rd stringer with Bob and Lu.

Seems on par with Kulemin/Franson/Lombardi to me. Kulemin > Brassard, Franson < Savard, Lombardi = Boll, Mason.

There are pieces I'd like better, but if this is the best offer, I've heard worse.
I don't like giving up Savard, but I guess I could live with that. I'd really prefer if we got back someone like Raymond in the process if we're giving up that package, tho - we could use a speedster who'll score more than two goals in a season so as to keep Gillies on the bench.

(Bonus: that would leave Derek Dorsett as the only CBJ player drafted under the MacLean regime. )
(No, you can't have him. )

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
