Once he's developed his all-around game, look out...
While I'm a big fan of Erixon, I don't see that kind of upside with him. I see a good second pair guy - if everything works out for him. As for Brassard, if it brings us a guy like Jared Cowen in return, I'll personally call him up and inform him of the trade.
I like Cowen too, but Erixon looks brilliant out there- smarts off the charts. Do you think we could persuade them to take a different package? Oh, and though Ottawa fans like the idea of bringing Brass back, as he is local talent, he would have no center spot there with Turris and Spezza.
Edit: On second thought, there just isn't a need for this sort of trade by either club.
