We have defensemen to spare and Penner would fill our greatest need right now. Who is to say that Penner won't still be here in 2014?

And he scored 29 on a different team. He can score goals, is young, and fits the system. He is easily worth a mid first round pick, especially one that is half a decade away from making an impact.
He's only passed the 50 point mark once in his career. He's also slow. I'd prefer a winger with more skill.

If people around here aren't happy with Smyth, they sure as hell won't be happy with Penner.

I'd rather take a risk on Hemsky.

Regardless, DL is on stand by until he sees how Loktionov works out.
