Good trade for Oil.

They just got Branden Prust minus the offense.

More like Lucic, without the scoring and size and fighting ability. Basically Lucic.

Exactly. I bought the frame for a Corvette today. Ergo, I have a Corvette.

Didn't look like Brown was going to have a place in the lineup once Frattin and Lupul came back. Will miss Brown but he is the kind of player that I can get over easily. I have been surprised with the quality of play from both Orr and McLaren this year and honestly he was becoming not needed. 3rd/4th I think is great value for him, Oilers get something they have been lacking as well. Wish Brown the best of luck with his new team.

And now I am cheering for the Oilers to make the playoffs. Go Oilers go!

No Brown love; Leafs just bagged the wrong "tough guy"...Brown gives you more than McLaren or Orr does is all.

That's what Dallas fans when we traded for Fistric. Fistric has been awesome for us so far. Hopefully brown keeps the mojo going.

Just thinking about Komarov, Brown and Petrell on the same line.

there`s no hate, respected and liked him, but if we`re starting to feel sorry for guys like him, our 4th line is very good right now there is no place for brown...it will soon be komarov-mcclement-orr with mclaren substituting orr in some games...so where would brown play?

Brown is a good energy guy who can hit, fight and agitate the other team. Brown just got outplayed by others playing for the same position and hope he does a good job protecting the young guys in Edmonton.

You'll like his energy and you'll like his epic beards even more.

Yikes! If that's the case this is a clear win for Nonis.

Regardless, the Oil have someone to protect the kids and the Leafs clear some space for guys returning from injury.

i know it's only a 4th rounder... but that's quite the overpayment for a dime a dozen player!

good move by Nonis ( even if that pick ends up being a bust. )

Seems like a deal the leafs cant really be upset about. Brown was a character guy, but he was likely on the outs anyway. two of Brown/McClaren/Orr would have to sit when everyone is healthy; and i guess it is pretty clear who the odd man was.

He is nice for energy and adds that extra edge to games. But it's better picking up something, rather then having him eating popcorn up in the press box. Have a feeling a Liles/Komisarek deal will come about in order to get them playing time as well.

You do realize that that would be pick # 62, 61 if they finish last.

Good trade for the Oilers. Brown is a guy i would have kept, others may be better scrappers but Brown is an option regardless of whether the opponents are icing tough guys of their own. Possibly there was less or no interest whatsoever in the other two and if that was the case i understand the motivation.

Players who can fight and skate are not a dime a dozen.

Trend going around the league now with toughness back in style.
