Never really bought this. Up until last month, Brassard was very questionable 5 on 5. That is NOT a 1st or 2nd line player.

If Brassard continues adequate 5 on 5 play, the Rangers will have gotten a pretty good player. He's also seemed to have figured out faceoffs as well. If he wins half of his defensive zone faceoffs, that will help out the Rangers immensely. Brassard was gawd awful on defensive zone draws. That was a huge issue.

With his past short comings, you just couldn't trust him.
