I' m not sure a first for Brassard is anything more than a lateral move at best. Basically you're hoping that the pick becomes, in a couple of years, what Brass is now. Not every first rounder is a top line player. Certainly not right away.
Brassard has not become the player everyone wanted him to be. But that doesn't mean he needs to go for whatever offer comes up. This team is offensively challenged and like it or not will continue to be until such time as prospects/ draft picks have the time to develop. He has skills this team needs. I am not opposed to trading him but I would expect that we would get a player (winger) that can match his production or a couple (prospect/pick) that offer a reasonable chance to surpass him.
