I think the trade was made to give the Jackets two pretty solid, gritty type players, a very promising D man and a #1 pick.
I meant on the Jackets..... On better teams, those guys are definitely "tweeners" between the second and third lines.

My point was more that Brassard skating on the top line at center is something that likely isn't going to last with much more experienced and "battle tested" guys now on the roster. The days of shoving pegs into holes because, potentially, thats where they should fit, should be over.

I agree with Fox, both Mason and Brassard don't seem to fit the "reshape" mentality, thus far.
