Chris Taylor was a PPG player in the NHL many times over. It's hard to judge purely on AHL points. There are plenty of guys that tear it up in the AHL and never make it. Heck, Mark Mancari has been a PPG guy. Sure, Brennen's younger and a defenseman, so he has a more of a shot of making an NHL impact, but even then, what's the going rate for a 6/7 defenseman? Not much. Ben Lovejoy...5th round pick.
