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?
No I wouldn't, then again, two different situations.

I'm not gonna be upset with his play if he continues to do utilize his strengths as long as his weaknesses don't get in the way. His faceoff % has been fantastic, sans last night. If he just keeps that up he's good to go.
