Give him a chance? He's 25 years old. Rushed or not, he's been in the league for 6 years.

My "agenda" isn't against Brassard, it is against the Rangers' philosophy of team building.
And now is the first time he's been on a relatively functional team. Voracek has turned into a quality player after looking like he was rushed to the NHL his rookie year. Give Brassard a full season to wash the Columbus suck off of him and see if he can be a good player on a contending team. If not? We can move him for some picks. No big loss.

What is the Rangers' agenda of team building? Acquire young depth that can potentially be a solid contributor in the future? I agree with you about team turnover, but the Gaborik move was a fairly solid move both now and for the future.
