Falcons sign Brennan

The Springfield Falcons signed Kip Brennan today. He’s a load (6.04, 222) and as you would guess his role is as an enforcer. Brennan’s problems as a player (skating, speed) are duplicated in the organization (MacIntyre, for one) but I wouldn’t count him out as an NHL option this winter. Brennan has played 61 NHL games (1-1-2, 222pims) and certainly covers the “fighter insurance” Edmonton might need if injuries become a factor at the position.

He began last season in Helsinki (SM-LIIGA), then came back to the AHL (Hershey) and spent some time in the ECHL too. He has played over 250 AHL games and been a teammate of people like Dean Arsene along the way.

    Springfield may be a reasonable club this season? At least tough to play against?

    That's all I've got.

    springfield will be good, but non of our prospects will be playing there because they'll all be in AA Stockton.

    this move also says to me that Smac is staying with the big club or we're assuming that he's going to get picked up off waivers after training camp.

    Oh good, maybe they'll let us have that 3rd rounder back for Cameron Abney now.

    I perused Brennan's fights on youtube and I'm struck with a strange vibe. It seems like everyone that fights him really wants to beat the holy hell out of the guy. Then there's this.

    Looks like he spends a lot of time under the other team's skin. This might put Kip at a disadvantage because those hate-fueled punches seem to get the better of him most of the time.

    Also, how great of a name is Kip Brennan? Just hearing that name makes me want to throw on a pair of docksiders and knock back some single malt on a yacht in Nantucket Sound.
