So you are talking less about his offensive output and more about his 2-way game. I can agree with that because I think offensively, he will be fine as a 2c.
Not quite. I don't think Derick Brassard should be a 2C on any contending team, rather he could be one on a consistent bottom feeder (like Columbus). I also don't think his defense is good enough to fill the philosophy on a Tortorella run team, need to be good defensively to be a 3C. Brassard would be a perfect 3C on a team like Detroit that used to run 3 scoring lines and one checking line. He'd fill in as their Hudler role.
