Dreger: Expectation is that the Penguins will trade Derick Brassard

It’s no secret that general manager Jim Rutherford and the Pittsburgh Penguins aren’t really satisfied with the season Derick Brassard has been having. Rutherford has been fuming openly for weeks about things like “wanting more” out of Brassard and how the GM hoped the player’s performance would improve. According to Darren Dreger on TSN’s “Insider Trading” segment prior to games on Tuesday, the team is about ready to move...

What do the Penguins NEED to add at the trade deadline?

What, if anything, should the Penguins be shopping for at the deadline? Monday’s article here on Pensburgh by Adam Gretz about what the Penguins have available to trade was interesting and got the gears going. With the idea of what Pittsburgh realistically would be looking to trade away (likely some combination of Derick Brassard, a 2019 first round pick, perhaps goalie Tristan Jarry, and perhaps a depth defenseman like Jamie Oleksiak), the next question becomes — what do they need? That’s where this unofficial 2019 NHL trade deadline outlook will shift. Deadline day this year is...

Penguins GM Rutherford growing impatient with Derick Brassard

The GM with some pointed comments about center Derick Brassard. Pittsburgh wants more out of him. The Pittsburgh Penguins are growing weary of the job center Derick Brassard is doing. How is such a bold statement so easily said? Well the general manager said as much plainly to Jason Mackey of the Post-Gazette: Derick Brassard, their big acquisition last season, hasn’t been what they expected. He has no points in seven games, three in his past 17. Which means that either Brassard needs to start scoring, or he must suddenly transform himself into a Selke Trophy candidate and...
