from the Columbus Dispatch,

The Blue Jackets hoped it wouldn’t come to this; not so soon, anyway.

Hitchcock, perhaps more than anybody else in the organization, is reluctant to put Brassard too high in the lineup.

It’s not so much the opposing centers Brassard will face—tonight, for instance, he will get to know Stars center Mike Modano—but the big, burly defensemen, who dine on young, smallish, inexperienced players such as Brassard.
