    Brassard on the Move Again This Summer?

    Brassard, who came to the Penguins from Ottawa at the deadline in a three-way deal with Vegas that cost the Penguins a first-rounder (plus), has one year remaining on his contract at just a $3 million cap hit and is likely to be on the move again this offseason.

    He was very bad in the playoffs, which is surprising.

    I feel like he was injured down the stretch.

    He was prior to playoffs and apparently dealing with lingering stuff during. At least from what it says here:

    http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/p...s/201805090192

    Brassard admitted Wednesday that he may have tried to come back a bit too quickly from the lower-body injury that kept him out for the final five games of the regular season.

    “I was dealing with some stuff,” Brassard said. “Maybe I came back a little too quick. I hurt myself before the playoffs, but I wanted to be there. I wanted to be there for Game 1 to help the team as much as I can. It kind of came back a little bit after that in round two. I was just trying to kind of forget about that and push as hard as I can.”

    I don't know what Pitt has to gain by trading him before next season. He's about as good of a 3c as you're going to get.

    But can they afford him? Pitt is going to have some cap issues soon I think.

    Not next season, and Brass is only on the books until the end of next year.
