I couldn't agree more. While Brassard might not be producing on the scoreboard as much as would be liked, his presence as a solid 3rd line center has allowed Tortorella to solidify 4 lines and actually commit to them for a lengthy stretch of time.
Brassard's line is not a liability, and spends more time playing in the offensive zone than the defensive zone, which could not be said of our third line before the trade.
Points will come, but when I watch the Rangers post-trade deadline, I like what I see.
I am looking forward to Rangers games again.
