What we do know is Dustin Penner is already a proven 25-30g scorer year end and year out. Why would Edmonton give their 240lb 30g scorer away for less?
I'm not sure about the "zero offense", he has 10 points and hasn't had a sniff of PP time. I don't think offense will ever be the strength of his game but he is a mobile enough guy(great feet for a guy 6'7") and has good hockey sense, once his frame fills out and he has a year under his belt I could see him putting up 30-35 points in the OHL and eventually 15-20 in the NHL like a Regehr. Zero Offense is John Scott or Steve MacIntyre.
