I went and did a little digging...

From the CBJ board:
The "Fire Arniel" thread (may be some tidbits in there)

What is wrong with Brassard? thread (from the same time period)
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1043799

Link to article where Brass' agent rips Arniel:

Quote:
Allan Walsh "While I have tremendous respect for (general manager) Scott Howson and the rest of Columbus' management team, the situation regarding Derick Brassard has become untenable. The coach has a history of burying players and using them as scapegoats to mask his own lack of success on the ice. Derick has been singled out, almost from the very beginning of the season, to be the fall guy in case things don't go well. The Columbus organization cares about Derick and has been good to him, but at some point, one has to say, enough is enough."
It will be interesting to see how things play out in NY. Brassard's performances seem to directly depend on how he feels about things.
