How do you feel about Brennan's chances to make the team? I've been to quite a few Amerk games this year (from Rochester) and I've been impressed with him more times than not (but again, I don't know the little stuff to look for). But there are times where he seems to disappear.

Also, do you think guys like Porter and Girgensons (depending on the severity of the injury he suffered versus Syracuse last night) have a chance of seeing time in Buffalo this year?
Don't expect to see Girgensons unless he really starts turning it on like Foligno did in his AHL rookie season last year. And that's a longshot, considering Girgensons is maybe 2 years younger than Foligno was, but who knows what happens once he continually gets more ice time.

Porter would surely be the first forward call-up. Brennan might make the team but it'll depend on how many extra forwards vs defensemen they carry. It's unfortunate that he has to clear waivers to go back to the AHL as some team would likely claim him. We'll see if Darcy makes any defensemen trades or sends down/waives/trades one of the spare forwards (like McCormick), as well as whether or not Grigorenko sticks. Right now there are 3 extra forwards and 3 extra defensemen.
