Atheletisism aside, both Penner and Buff play the same game. Big guys, dominate down low and have soft hands. Byfuglien just seems more interesting because of switch to forward from D. Penner upside is 30-35 goals 30-35 assists.
Both suffer from weight issues, but if I had to choose between the two I'd take your guy, but not at the expense of Gilbert that's for sure.
All in all. The trade proposal does nothing for the Hawks or the Oil so a pass from me as well.
