Small move today as Bob McKenzie tweeted moments ago, but Nashville trades the rights of Bobby Butler to Florida for the rights of defenseman T.J. Brennan. FLA trades T.J. Brennan to NSH for Bobby Butler. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 14, 2013 As both are restricted free agents currently, Nashville will be getting a young left-shooting defenseman from the Panthers. Scoring nine points in 19 games last season with Florida, Brennan was formerly drafted 31st overall by the Buffalo Sabres in 2007, bouncing around the AHL in both Portland and Rochester. A product of the QMJHL, Brennan had two straight 41-point seasons for the St. John’s Fog Devils in 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 respectively. Nashville will be getting back a defenseman with a heavy slapshot, a big body (6’1″ and 213 pounds), and can level an opposing player in an instant Here’s a 4-minute pre-draft montage: Also, here’s a video of Brennan scoring his first goal in his first NHL game with Buffalo back in 2011 If signed, Brennan should give a good young presence on the blueline, however I don’t believe it will be in Nashville. Milwaukee could definitely use a big body presence on their blueline, as the Predators have some better and more experienced options already available at their disposal. While Brennan will probably be at training camp if signed, I’m doubtful he makes the opening night roster unless he really shines.
