Derick Brassard Available?

Per Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts column

Quote:
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!).
