But Bertuzzi isn't a replacement for Penner, he's a replacement for Teemu. We didn't get anything for Dustin except picks that can't score any goals for us this season (or next season, or probably the season after that). Right now are #2 LW is either Travis Moen or Brad May. The UFA pool is almost totally dried up so in all likelihood either one of those guys will be the #2. This sucks. I'm glad we don't have that contract constricting our cap but if Pens continues to improve, like he's been doing every year since he was 18, than we lose this deal. Time will tell I guess.
