I started to comment about how at least Penner was making significantly more of an offensive contribution, which is true, but then when you look at the age differential that might not be fair to Bernier. I keep forgetting he's still only 24.

Sadly, I think I might be right.
His indifference the last few weeks was reminiscent of the 'house.' Hopefully that was just the injury.
