i found this article particularly interesting considering my isles have a very good chance to land brassard. there are plenty of things i don't like about him, mainly his frame and his total wimpiness at the combine. what i do like is the fact that red line suggests brassard wasn't leaching off latrendresse. in fact, they go as far as saying that brassard was carrying latrendresse down the stretch. here's the link: http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/columnist.jsp?content=20060503_094022_3900 any "q" fans out there who can comment on this report? i do know that brassard's best playoff game came without latrendresse even in the lineup. i suppose that tends to support what the author is suggesting.
