    Tremendous performer when it mattered most and was tougher than a lot of people gave him credit for. Will miss him.

    Thanks for everything Brass! Class act! Effort and heart were there, that's all a fan can ask for! I hope it doesn't sting too much and wish you all the best in Ottawa.

    Once a Ranger always a Ranger!!

    This is me at 30 years old.

    I have said it a million times, my fav NYR forward since Kovalev.

    Never a point of complaint in all his time here. Unreal.

    No reason for him not to still be here. Ranger for life indeed.

    THANK YOU BRASSGOD, MUCH LOVE AND APPRECIATION, HOPE YOU COME BACK SOON SOMEHOW.

    :(

    amen to this. I think Ottawa might be my other favorite team now (other than the Panthers, who i've had a soft spot for for a long time)

    In the league today, there's a good reason I refuse to get a jersey with a name and number of a current player.

    I guess I'm buying a Brassard Sens Alt jersey now. Or maybe their home set.

    I'll miss the cellies. And the smile. And the clutch goals. And the bromance he had with Zucc.

    Love Brass, but have a hard time understanding how anyone can have him above Zucc when picking a favorite.

    This was a tough one. Brass came here and reached the potential that was expected of him early on but never panned out - before he got to NY. We usually get the opposite.

    I had the opportunity to meet him a few times and one of those times was for a few hours. Class act all the way. People came over to him and interrupted our conversation yet he just apologized to pose or sign without a hint of being pissed - the smile never went away whenever he signed or posed for a selfie. I had a great time and a lot of laughs with him & Zuuc. All the players make sure Zuuc is taken care of, because his English isn't so great, very comical - but that's another story.
    To say he was a good guy seems lame, but he was - and he is a great pro.

    On the ice - we had a guy that played hard and made some big plays for us. Did we need to trade him now? The truth is, what we got was pretty good also, especially the pick - because we didn't like keeping picks. Different league these days force you to do different things. In the end the Rangers did what they usually don't do - get younger, so as I fan - this one hurt now, but maybe we have to really acknowledge that the suits have a plan and not a cigar. Teams used to love dumping guys on the Rangers - not any more (we hope).

    We wish him the best...I even won't get upset if he does well against us, but be ready....he probably will.

    Good luck Brass!!!

    According to several beat writers, Brass was one of the best players to talk to, and one of the ones who usually asked them questions as well (like "How is your day going?"/"What are your plans this weekend?"/etc)

    Swell guy. Will miss him. I'll still wear his jersey with pride.

    And @Machinehead still wears his (unwashed) socks with the same pride too.

    Brass is one of those likable players who can play for your rival, yet you still love. Can’t make that statement for a lot of hockey players. He represented our jersey well. #respect

    All that said highway robbery on our part. I really really liked Brassard but Zibanejad is a major, major NHL star who was having an elite level season before the season was called. We f***ing completely ripped Ottawa off on this one--even got a 2nd rounder besides.

    I did backflips when the trade was announced. It was almost too good to be true.
