Brassard was an under achieving 2nd line center for the jackets for years. Wilson is not a comparable at all. Wilson was emerging and evolving. Brassard showed no inclination of improving. What has happened since is irrelevant.

But to clarify, Watson isn't a comparable to Brassard who was an NhL roster player for several years. I was merely pointing out that Watson isn't chopped liver and I think you are undervaluing our prospects to some degree. In an unrelated statement, I was saying the Gaborik deal could be a comparable in terms of value, not the Erat deal which was a deadline deal on an extremely affordable contract with less cash than actual cap hit. Those deals are not comparable IMO. Make sense?
