Josh Brown acquired from Florida for a 2020 4th Round Pick
Why it made sense at the time: Many of the same reasons for signing Zub apply here as the Sens were still in the early stages of their off-season at the time. Brown had spent two unremarkable seasons in Florida as a physical defensive defenceman who looked like a lower risk acquisition than Zub, albeit with a much lower ceiling.
How it looks so far: After looking decent enough in the first few games of the season, Brown quickly fell down the depth chart and only played one game in the month of February. When he’s been in the lineup he’s put up an abysmal 41.77 xGF% at 5-on-5 while putting up no points in nine games.
Grade: D-, the only thing keeping this move above a fail is that a fourth-round pick is almost nothing.
