Florida Panthers: Reviewing the McCann-Bjugstad Trade

In case anybody needed a recap, the Florida Panthers traded forwards Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Derick Brassard, Riley Sheahan, and three 2019 draft picks.

Those draft picks include Pittsburgh’s second round and fourth-round picks, as well as the Minnesota Wild’s fourth-round selection.

The trade looked to fill both teams’ needs as the Penguins were searching for immediate help amongst the bottom six, with Brassard underwhelming since his trade from Ottawa.

With just 15 points (9 goals, 6 assists) across 40 games during the 2018-19 season, the Pens decided to move on.
