Derick Brassard Available?

Per Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts column

Who is available?...Once again, Derick Brassard's name is coming up. That's been an uneasy marriage, to say the least. The Columbus Blue Jackets have three first-round picks next year -- their own and one each from the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers. I can't imagine they'd trade their own for anything less than a superstud, but the other two are strong commodities in a deep draft.

I'm honestly amazed Brassard is still there, there have been rumors about him for years, but this year with Nash departing and him having a real chance to cement his spot on the team, he's been pushed out of the center position and is just middling. Still, you have to imagine teams are interested in a young centerman who could maybe center a Top 2 line, especially if you feel like he was being mishandled (Not saying he was!).
