He's a bit of a weak spot. When he's on his game, he fits that line pretty well. But he's rarely on his game.
Oh well, what do you expect from a player like Poops?
I might be in the minority, but I feel like AV and co are trying to turn Brassard into a viable, two-way third line C. IMO, he's been improving his defensive game over the past few games and cutting out the idiotic blind passes and pointless turnovers. He's chipping the puck in and working his ass off. I don't think he's played poorly, but Richards/Stepan are player very well, so he's stuck behind those two, playing with two bottom-6 players (Pouliot, who is a blackhole for 85% of his ice time, and Dorsett, who creates chances, but isn't exactly loaded with skill). Hopefully he can get back to winning faceoffs like he was after the trade last year. Would be a big help.
Either way, Nash coming back gives Brassard a legitimate finisher on his line, whether it be Nash or Cally.
