I would have done it without a second thought. It's a weak draft and Tinordi is likely a #3 at best since he's American.

Penner is exactly what we need and he's still young. Plus the turnaround value is higher than what we'd be dishing.

I would much prefer to dump AK and take Penner. Come playoff time we'll see who was right when AK is afraid to go in the corner. How soon we all forget how effective Byfuglien was against Pronger... sheesh.

Penner-Gomez-Cammalleri
Pacioretty-Pleks-Gionta
Moen-Eller-AK (dump after playoffs)
Pouliot-DD-White

No balance on this team right now at all. That would have given us four balanced scoring lines that can play two-way hockey.

But if anyone knows about Penner, it's PG. He has his insiders there still I guess. And Moen probably weighed in.
