I really like him, especially on the powerplay. Like someone (Ola?) perfectly analyzed: one of the biggest issues with our failing PP was that we hardly have someone who can handle the puck under pressure. Brassard can definitely do that. He can also pass pretty damn good and carry the puck, so he really gives our offense some much needed skill (that Gaborik did not provide).

On defense however, I'm not quite sold on him yet. I think he really needs to be paired with defensively sound wingers. So having him with Hangs and Boyle isn't the worst idea.
