      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] CBJ to move Brassard?

Recommended Posts

A 40 point 3rd line center with higher potential, who is strong on the puck and has decent size?

IIRC he has also played the LW a bit with CBJ.

Brassard - Schroeder - Raymond

Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

?

One can dream?

I don't know if I'd say "one can dream" - it's not like we're getting Jamie Benn back or anything. Bigger than Schroeder but similar in their both playmaking centers. A good player but already makes over $3M, at least is signed through next year so we wouldn't be worried about a raise until the following year, when the cap will likely rise.

Columbus is certainly poised for some changes with the new management in charge, so I do see them making some moves leading up to the deadline.

Columbus ruined his developed, i think with the proper patience, this guy can be a real effective 2nd liner with 1st line upside. I said it a few years ago, If a team can get him cheap he's going to be a steal. There isn't anything this kid can't do. Just get the kid his confidence back.

He is a well rounded 3rd line centre. With Malhotra gone we might be looking. It depends on the asking price.

He is going to cost something significant, this isn't going to be one of those C prospect + 2nd round pick trades. There will be an asking price.

Not that he is worth the moon but Columbus doesn't have a ton of valuable assets (atleast ones they are willing to move) so they are probably going to try to squeeze the best return they can get out of this one.

I dont think it'll take a huge offer to pry Brassard. He has some assets in the top 6, like his playmaking ability, but he's jekel and hyde on faceoffs, and definatley not a stud defensivley. The kid is a project now, and is not a smart mid-season pickup.

I'd rather go with Schroeder than roll the dice on Brassard.

On another note from Colombus... If Dubinsky were to come available, he could be a very nice fit @ 3rd line C. He's a left handed center (Which we need), and is a carreer 52% on the draw. He can skate, he hits, kills penalties, and is an easy .5 ppg player, with potential for more with the right coaching style and linemates.

He'd cost less than O'Reilly, but would likley have a similar contribution. His cap hit is 4.2, so thered need to be some salary going back. Id go straight across for David Booth.

What if Booth doesn't do well when he comes back? This could be a decent buy-low swap of Booth for Brassard+ which can really balance the lines out; then again, just noticed that Ryan Johansen got demoted to the minors for weak play so if, over time, his play doesn't pick up maybe Ry-Jo can be targeted instead? I'd be willing to go Booth+ pick/ prospect+. I mean, at this point it's hard to say whether Brassard's career potential can still be salvaged fully, and to pay that much for an inconsistent 3rd center would not be something I'd like to do if I were GM. Ry-Jo on the other hand should still be good, but may just need the right environment to grow in so he's not squandered.
