Team(s) Interested: Toronto Maple Leafs- There has been a lot of chatter that Derick Brassard could be on the move from the Blue Jackets. With James Wisniewski suspended and not in the lineup until the end of the month, the Blue Jackets defense lacks offensive power. They lost talented Jan Hejda in the offseason during contract negotiations and were not able to add any offensive-minded defensemen aside from Wisniewski. Toronto has 2 d-men that could possibly head to the Blue Jackets, Cody Franson and Carl Gunnarson. Franson is playing his first game in a Leafs uniform against the Calgary Flames tonight, and Gunnarson has been in many trade rumors since the summer. With the amount of depth the team has, they can afford to trade a D or 2 to add a top 9 forward, and this is where Brassard comes in. But this is where the deal will most likely not happen: Brassard is another Centerman. So Brassard or another center would have to move to the wing, or else the deal will not happen. Multiple other reports have suggested that a few Eastern Conference teams are interested in Brassard, including the Senators.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
