Derrick Brassard has been the best player on the ice for the Jackets since the firing of the coach. Has he turned the corner? Is he a piece of the foundation? Or is this just a mirage? The way he is playing now, I don't trade him, I keep him and build with him. Your thoughts?
The key word in your ascertain is "now".
Brass has been streaky since we got him, thus the question is, is this the kind of player he is going to remain? I suspect so.
Then again, Nash is streaky too. So the thing I'm looking for is HOW does Brassard contribute when he's not scoring? Several coaches have been on his case about that. So if they trade him, it will likely be because they think he's not going to be a two-way player.
