A comparable to me is Joel Otto(except Joel was a lot more physical) Basically a decent nice guy and not a dirty player. Otto could have done a lot more if he wasn't a gentleman. Mess for instance would have been more negated had Joel ever decided on it. The flames would have been far worse to play against all those years if Joel Otto played with anger.
I have to agree, although I don't want to. Penner is one of those guys that the talking heads on TSN/Sportsnet talk about. One of those guys that respects other players and turns away at the last minute and doens't finish his check because it was needed.

He is what he is.
