The 28-year-old forward, who spent parts of four seasons with the New York Rangers, was dealt to the Ottawa Senators. Heading to New York were forward Mika Zibanejad and Sens’ second-round draft pick in 2018. Brassard admitted he...

Is Derick Brassard the Rangers’ best trade chip?

Ever since the ball dropped that the Rangers are fielding offers on everyone not named Brady Skjei, Pavel Buchnevich, or Henrik Lundqvist, the focus has been on trading names like Rick Nash, Derek Stepan, and Ryan McDonagh (Marc Staal/Dan Girardi notwithstanding). But when it comes to Stepan, very few bring up Derick Brassard, who may […] The post Is Derick Brassard the Rangers’...

Rangers take calculated risks with Brassard/Zuccarello contracts

Last night, the Rangers re-signed their final arbitration eligible RFA, locking up Derick Brassard to a five-year deal at $5 million per season. This came a few days after locking up another key RFA, Mats Zuccarello to a one-year deal at $3.5 million.

Projecting Derick Brassard’s next contract

Derick Brassard is the third and final RFA that filed for arbitration this month (Mats Zuccarello and Chris Kreider). I’ve looked at both Kreider’s and Zuccarello’s next contracts already, and with arbitration dates coming up, it’s time to look at Brassard’s potential deal. Brassard is an interesting case, if only because of his high salary […] The post Projecting Derick...

Rangers are in a tough spot with Brassard’s next contract

The Rangers are in a tough spot with Derick Brassard. He’s a restricted free agent who is arbitration eligible, yet he really shouldn’t be paid much more than his qualifying offer of $3.7 million. But Brassard is likely seeking more than that on a long-term contract to buyout years in free agency. My best guess is he will be looking for something along the lines of Bryan Little‘s...
