Fair enough, but if it continues, when does the story change? If Brassard continues to play this way, he will not only no longer be getting tweener ice time (a dangerous assumption with Torts behind the bench), but opposing teams will be forced to pay attention to him. I concede that this is a rather big "if", but I'd be willing to bet that Brassard scores at at least 75% of Gaborik's pace moving forward. Would you be surprised if he pulled that off?
