Description: Allan Walsh, the agent for Derick Brassard, has made negative comments toward coach Scott Arniel's treatment of Brassard. TSN
Insight: "This coach has a history of burying players and using them as scapegoats to mask his own lack of success on the ice. Derick has been singled out, almost from the very beginning of the season to be the fall guy in case things don't go well." Brassard has just two goals and two assists in 18 games while being a healthy scratch in seven of the last ten games. It appears the only way Brassard will be able to salvage any fantasy value this season will be if he is traded out of Columbus, something that could happen soon given Walsh's comments.
