You guys are overestimating Forbort. Just because his ceiling is Adam Foote doesn't translate in Foote's value going into a trade. Ironically, I would have to side with the Edmonton fans in this deal. I don't think I would add a first, maybe a second. Forbort + 2nd round pick in 2011 for Penner. It is a proven player against prospects here, have to pay out.

Penner has playoff experience, has a ring, is resilient and plays 80+ games, and I believe he can be a 30 goal scorer on Kopitar's wing.

He is signed, he won't be a UFA this offseason, though I agree with you, Toffoli is needed in the near future, I wouldn't give him up, I would counter with another defensive prospect or draft pick.
