If he is going to be Chris Pronger, obviously it's a different matter, but he's shown no real signs of that. Brunet was also pointing out that he was fighting a lot, and that's not really a good sign.
It's true, he has very little chances of becoming ''Pronger'',

But in the event that he plateaus into a big, physical, stay-at-home first pairing D whom we can rely on game after game, wouldn't that still be more useful than having Penner in itself? And I don't know about you but it would have been pretty terrible not to have a first and a second pick in this year's draft. We're not exactly perennial cup contenders and our cupboards are almost bare when it comes to defense.

In any case, If I werre to offer up Tinordi (no matter how u see his potential he is still a first round pick) + a first it wouldn't be for Penner.
