Yeah, I remember how psyched I was for Brendl. He was supposed to be a can't miss prospect. Dominated the WHL and was a top five pick like a year or two before they got him. I called in to WIP a month or so ago when they were talking about players that busted in trades and I mentioned Brendl and I think it was Rob Ellis who basically laughed at me and said no one expected much out of him when they got him in the Lindross deal.
