from Aaron Portzline of Puck-rakers,
Blue Jackets center Derick Brassard said he did not sleep well last night, and he woke early this morning. The torment was caused by an interview Brassard gave to Montreal radio station CKAC on Monday evening.
Brassard apologized profusely this morning. He could have chosen his words more carefully, Brassard agreed. But he also said the radio station misconstrued his words and inaccurately portrayed his comments when they posted them on their Web page.
“It’s not something I said that I would take back, but it’s something I would do with other words,” Brassard said. “I didn’t express myself well, and the Montreal media ... they tried to get a headline of me.”...
But here is Brassard’s take, first to the issue that the Blue Jackets should be lumped in with the Atlantas, Floridas and Phoenixes of the world as potential clubs that could relocate to Quebec.
“They ask me a question of the fans and the low attendance in the stands,” Brassard said, “and my answer was ‘Right now we’re not playing well at home, so there’s pretty much no atmosphere. The fans are mad about last year, and we need a better record if they’re going to be behind us.”
The other question was the nuclear bomb, one which Brassard didn’t quite defuse.
“The other question was ‘Are the owners behind your team?’
