Maybe they trade Penner for a pick, but I don't think they'd add anything to him for Butler and/or Regin, and I don't think they would trade him unless they had someone coming in to replace him.
You can add as many UFA's to that list as you like, but why would they trade him for another UFA, it makes zero sense. I'm sure that Butlers 2G and 4A can easily replace Penners 2G and 5A, at a quarter of the salary. Not that I want Penner on the Sens at all, but lets be realistic, there wouldn't be a whole lot to "replace" as you put it, if they trade him. He has been terrible this year.
