Here We Go Again – Brodie Appears On TSN’s Trade Bait Board
TSN loves building up Trade Deadline hype.
This year they started 117 days before the February 24 NHL trade deadline.
One of the names who appeared on TSN’s first Trade Bait board of the year, was Dresden’s TJ Brodie.
Brodie, who plays for the Calgary Flames, and is in the final season of his contract, was listed at number 11 on the 15 player list.
TSN wrote the following about the Calgary Flames’ situation on the blueline.
“The Calgary Flames have decisions to make on defence with both Travis Hamonic and T.J. Brodie in the final years of their deals. There is the belief that Calgary was close to a deal with New Jersey at last June’s Draft involving Brodie, the night before the Devils pulled the trigger on P.K. Subban. Now, after initial discussions with Hamonic’s camp proved unfruitful, it’s possible that Hamonic could be on the move.
That Calgary’s up-and-down start (6-6-2) hasn’t met expectations throws a wild into the mix. Will GM Brad Treliving look for an early season shakeup? If the Flames get it together, it isn’t difficult to envision both defencemen sticking around for the season.”
Brodie assisted on the overtime winner for Calgary Thursday night, and has 6 assists in 14 games this year. He has yet to score a goal this season.
