Rick Nash was a top line player unless there was too much talent around him. You are either skilled and competitive enough for top line minutes or you are not.

I feel the same way about Derick Brassard from time to time - if he had snipers to set up, I think he's a capable player.
If you are concerned about who is surrounding Brassard, he's not a top line player.

I'm not even sure Brassard is a top six guy on most nights. If you want to hide him with two all-stars I'm sure he'll produce a bit more. Will not mean he's a top line player.
