Now, Penner is a bit older than Horton, but that in no way should cause the deal to drop from what Boston got to a singular late first rounder. Using the above template, a fair deal would be this:

Dustin Penner
Andrew Cogliano

for

Gorges/Wisniewski
mid 1st round pick
3rd round pick

Tinordi and a 1st is a slight underpayment if anything; there's zero justification that it's this massive gulf in value. I'd ask what Habs fans think those two could get them, but I have a feeling the answer would involve Crosby, Malkin or Stamkos.


NO.

Penner has value for sure but wow dont get carried away. This is a guy who you couldnt give away for free less than 2 years ago and all of a sudden he is worth a high prospect and a #1? NO chance.

IMO he is worth a mid level prospect (Weber) and a 2nd. You would be lucky to get that much.
