I don't understand why Columbus would be open to trading Brassard. He's young, talented, and it looks like he's part of a pretty deep forward core going ahead for Columbus. They look like a team ready to compete now or by next season, so trading Brassard for prospects or players who are NHL caliber but haven't proven themselves yet (Holland, DSP) seems like it would just set them back.

At the same time, Anaheim has put a lot of work into developing their young centers and it seems their patience is finally starting to pay off. Trading for Brassard, right now, just defeats the purpose of all the time Anaheim spent letting their centers develop. Getting a veteran rental with playoff experience for the 2C spot makes more sense for the Ducks right now. Brassard is a great player but that's a trade I would have liked to see 3+ years ago.
