I think that's about where most people thought he'd end up. Not a bad deal for a great 2nd line center.
Good deal. Anything 5M or lower is just about right for him.
I'd still like to see some more production since 5 million seems a little high for a 45-50 point player, but he fills that 2C role pretty well and 5 mil is roughly the going rate for those guys.

and yet Bolland makes more than him....yikes.
This was a good signing - Brassard also get a limited no-trade clause in the pact as well.
Its tough to pay that to someone that hasn't shown the production of a 2nd line center, but at the same time the NYR got nice discounts off Kreider, and Zuc, and with Richard gone they were between a rock and a hard place so salary isn't so bad, but the term is troublesome. If Brassard flourishes then its a steal, but if he fails then you're on the hook for 5 years at 5 million. Tough to trade. Personally I would have gone 3 years, but we'll see how it works out for both parties.
I think it's a good signing for both parties. It's a bit on the high end, but fair I think.

definitely expensive, no doubt about it. however, how many UFA years did this buy up? brassard has played 6 full-ish seasons so i assume he was only 1 year away from being a UFA, 4 of 5 UFA years at 5m for a second line center is not all that bad all things considered as long as he puts up points with solid 2-way play.
pays to be an above average center or dman these days;
One day I will quit fantasy hockey, today is not that day.

Heavily front-loaded deal. Similar to Ennis' contract except Brassard will get more money in third year of the deal which is why the cap hit is a bit higher.
Brassard is now droppable in cap leagues that use actual yearly salary instead of cap hit.
