Not exactly an earth-shattering trade, but both players should get a shot to earn significant playing time with their new teams. Bobby Butler was waived by the Devils after scoring just 2 points in 14 games last season, though he tallied nine points in 20 games after the Predators picked him up. (Updated 6/14/13).
Bobby Butler signed a two-way contract with New Jersey in August and could see a depth role with the Devils if he lands an NHL job. Butler disappointed in Ottawa last season with 16 points in 56 games after notching 21 in 36 games as a rookie. He has some offensive talent to his game, but the Devils may not need him at the NHL level. Monitor his situation in training camp. (Updated 8/14/12)
