I thought Smith was really good with them vs Toronto.  He used his strength to win board battles, went to the net.  He was good, but ideally he moves down with Pageau and we have a more legitimate scoring threat there.

Next year he'll likely be gone anyway, so that opens the spot for someone.  I wonder if Brassard's ever played wing and/or if he's good at it.
Dude, leave brassard where he is. We've been waiting for a left handed center for long enough

Yeah, you're gonna get one. A 6'7, 215 pound kid who hasn't started lifting weights yet apparently because he's still growing and is scoring at a 2.45 PPG pace in Windsor. Comparisons of Jumbo Joe mixed with Getzlaf are bandied around - and while it's unbelievably premature to say something like that, there are people who have watched him since his debut in the OHL who say he should have been a top 5 pick last draft.

you're not gonna start a guy as a number 2 center right out of the OHL.

Then you have to move Pageau to the wing and put him at 3C, but I think he comes in as 2C. People don't talk this way about prospects that often without there being merit.

Yeah, fans of the team he plays for pump him up, these are completely unbiased fans.

We'll see. I remember the sens saying they were likely gonna take their time with him and that there were parts of his game that were quite raw.

I know, I'm quite intrigued by pageau on the wing if need be.

Back with The olympics he was playing C And I think so too in bingo so I've never heard of him playing wing. Not saying it's not possible but we'll see. I know most players that are Lifers at the C position don't like getting moved to the wing. Not sure it's a long term strategy either.

Amen.  You don't take a 29-year-old established 2C and suddenly change him into a winger to, presumably, make room for a guy coming out of college?

EDIT: Just read the reply. By the time Brown is ready to play top-six in the NHL Brassard will probably be retired.

yeah, just saw that. Would have been a good time to put in Chabot to see him play with price out.
Also would have liked to see some comparisons against Sergachyov

I don't know about retire... I think the soonest we see brown though is in two years. And of course white will start on the wing. And most likely on the RW with pageau as he's a right handed shot.
