So does Brennan get a shot at the NHL after we trade Phaneuf or is he there to be our AHL leader.  I'm good with either.

I hope he gets a shot, even just a few games. He deserves it. Funny to see that his numbers have been pretty low this year in the AHL. 72 points in 76 games with the Marlies, 36 in 54 this year with Rockford.

Hopefully this means there might be hope that someone like Holzer gets dealt and Brennan can get a little NHL time.

Man, this team loves reacquiring players. Frattin hasnt turned out as planned I would think. Hopefully TJ can be a call up? Really scratching my head over this one.

The Leafs have a glut of mediocre AHL forwards and Abbott was the guy who got picked to help with a blueline that has dealt with injuries and callups.

Abbot was never going to see time with the big club. Brennan has  a chance, certainly will help the Marlies.

Holzer is unlikely to stick in the NHL but neither is Brennan.

Brennan's a RFA at the end of the season, so this trade could be just as much for next season than it is for now. Particularly for the Marlies, as their offence/powerplay has really suffered without him.

Was Abbott on an expiring contract?  Brennan is, so if Abbott wasn't then that's another consideration.

Marlies have around the 3rd lowest goals for in the AHL and are 5 pts out of a playoff spot. Brennan has more goals and points from the back end than Abbott does as a forward. Brennan could really help them offensively - more than Abbott.

The team the Marlies got Brennan from, Chicago, is the bubble team they're trying to catch. Maybe this was just a money thing ($600k one way deal for Brennan - Abbott was on a two way deal).

I'm pretty sure Abbott is a UFA after the season

Yeah, Abbott is a UFA, Brennan a RFA.
