Hyperbole aside, I think Brass has consistently produced chances in the offensive zone. He's not a defense specialist but he can make the smart play when he isnt afraid of getting wrecked. Other than that he is what he is. He's going to be pretty ineffective against other teams top lines but he's okay against players his skill level. Prospal Brass and Letestu are the top 3 scorers on the team and I think that's due mostly to who they face when they are playing offense. I dont ever think Brass will come close to being a number 1, that ship has sailed. Although Brassard does bring a creativity skill set that is severely lacking on this team. All that being said I'm all for trading him for the right deal.
I've said before, there is no player in CBJ history on whom I have run both hot and cold as much as Brassard. He has proven to be not quite good enough at any one thing to determine a role. But I agree with Gagne Fan here. He's playing well for what they're asking him to do, who he's playing with and against. If the FO and coaching staff can figure out a way he fits with the kind of roster they're building moving forward, fine. If not, fine.
