... I gotta say - I really like what Dean did here.

I like Penner as a player. Immediately he has the best shooting percentage of any player on the top lines, and he has 30-35 goal potential playing alongside Kopitar.

A top six of:

Penner-Kopitar-Simmonds
Smyth-Stoll-Williams

with Brown on the third line looks pretty good to me for sure.

I wasn't all too impressed with Teubert, and the defensive depth of the team is strong, so I'm good with that as well.

The first rounder next year will be mid-range at best, so I'm OK with giving that up as well.

I would guess that the conditional second is dependent upon whether the Kings can lock up Penner long-term.

Overall, it looks good. I'm excited about what this does for the team. Dean has made me a believer today. Well done.
