Let me make it clear. [U]I DONT THINK PENNER WILL GET 2-1sts + prospect + Pick.[/U] MY argument has been MISREPRESENTED by Headshot. I was just comparing his value to Kaberle's return, not saying that's what would happen. I actually am very reasonable in my expectations, look through my post history.
See, Penner cannot get you an A+ prospect. His value is closer to a late first + prospect. That is more than fair for a player like a Penner who is good for 60 points.

If you want a player on your team who has the value you speak of that would be Hemsky. It's closer to compare Hemsky's value to Kaberle than Penner to Kaberle.
