Listen, I was a fan of the trade; and for obvious reasons, still am. But if you - or anyone else here - expects Brassard to keep up that kind of ppg pace over the long term, you will be sorely disappointed. There is zero chance he replicates that over an 82-game season. Don't get me wrong - I like Brassard so far. Just trying to temper expectations, so when he inevitably goes into a slump this board doesn't explode with "HE SUCKS. OVERRATED. HIS CAREER IS OVER. TRADE. SEND HIM TO THE A. WAIVE HIM."
