Yup, better than waiving him and having someone pick him up.

SabresFan26 03-15-2013 06:55 PM

just saw this. Good, got something for him and didn't lose him on waivers

SabresFan26 03-15-2013 06:56 PM

And they sent Grigs back now they have a spot, although he should be in Quebec. Are officially sellers? I hope. Time to retool

dotcommunism 03-15-2013 06:56 PM

I wonder if its the same pick Florida got for Keaton Ellerby

Jacob582 03-15-2013 06:58 PM

I guess this shows that he would have been claimed if exposed to waivers.

They got something for him. But a lot of development for a 2nd round draft pick that ended up being a 5th round asset.

Tachycineta 03-15-2013 06:59 PM

Basically, folks, we got a 5th round pick for Marty Biron.

General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has acquired defenseman T. J. Brennan from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Florida’s fifth round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The fifth round draft pick was originally acquired by Florida from Los Angeles on Feb. 8.

thefifagod 03-15-2013 07:02 PM

The first of hopefully many acquired draft picks... getting any pick for Brennan is worth it

Jacob582 03-15-2013 07:05 PM

Thought this was interesting:
(nothing we didn't know though)

Corey Pronman‏@coreypronman
"Newest Florida Panther T.J. Brennan is a very skilled dman who skates well, with little to no defensive value"

FloriDada 03-15-2013 07:05 PM

Whats the lowdown with this guy, future division mates?

dotcommunism 03-15-2013 07:06 PM

Ok so I checked and apparently this is the pick which Florida got from the Kings for Ellerby, which in turn the Kings had gotten from the Devils for Loktionov

Cannon of a shot (though at this level he seemed to be Mr. High and Wide). Defensively suspect. Supposed to help the PP, but didn't.

At first I thought maybe they were trying to make the Panthers better so the Sabres would finish last and draft first...then I realized they traded Brennan, almost assuring the Panthers will finish lower than the Sabres.

Great shot, nothing else NHL-level, defensive liability so he needs sheltered minutes. My guess is Dineen grew to like him when he was coaching Portland and he wants Brennan to boost the Panthers PP with Garrison gone. Problem is he's not a good passer so it limits what he can do on the PP. To me, he's a AAAA player.

See my above quote.

Additional thoughts:
NHL level one-timer on the PP is his strength. He will play physical but somewhat fake toughness.
Gets lost in his own zone at times.
Played for Dineen with the Pirates. Hope this works out better than Tim Kennedy.

Good luck TJ! Hope you get your shot on the PP.

Kevin Oklobzija ‏@kevinoDandC - Rather than maybe lose him on waivers, the #Sabres traded D-man T.J. Brennan to the Fla. Panthers for a 5th round draft pick in June.

Kevin Oklobzija ‏@kevinoDandC - #Sabres GM Darcy Regier on trading T.J. Brennan to Fla. Panthers for 5th-round draft pick: "We weren't able to get him in our lineup (more)

Kevin Oklobzija ‏@kevinoDandC - (cont.) #Sabres Darcy Regier on T.J. Brennan trade:"Obviously if somebody's prepared to pay a draft pick, he wasn't going to clear waivers."

Came to post that last sentence. Surprised it took 10 posts for someone to recognize. And there are some who question darcys intelligence!! ;)

TJ played for dineen last year, I believe, in portland

Gragnani all over again.

I had the privilege of attending the Florida/Tampa game Tuesday. You guys have an awesome arena and everyone there was really nice and humble about Florida's season so far this year (at least you guys can say you are injured and not that you just purely suck the way Buffalo does). It was a great experience and I was cheering for the Cats like crazy.

As for Brennan, as others and the article have mentiioned, he's an offensive defensman who is a decent skater and has a good shot who is most beneficial to the team on the power play. He's still got some potential- he's an 07 pick, like Ellerby was. He is lost defensively, however. He did quite well in the AHL from an offensive standpoint.

Top Pair Imposter 03-15-2013 07:15 PM

He could put it all together and be MA Bergeron one day but frankly I doubt it.

Zip15 03-15-2013 07:16 PM

And people think we'll not get anything for Hecht.

Shoey 03-15-2013 07:16 PM

If Brennan makes Florida better it'll make Darcy look like a genius.

Unfortunately it's more likely that Brennan misses his flight.

Rasmus Reichel 03-15-2013 07:17 PM

Not the pick I want from florida :laugh: Brennan wasn't ever going to be a starter here, good to get something for him.
