Penner's point scoring ratio is .58 per game. AK's is .57. They are pretty much the same players. AK hits more, Penner is a slightly better sharpshooter.

Personally, I find it was quite an overpayment. Especially after seeing Buffalo land Boyes for a 2rounder. Arnott is about the only other PF traded (unless I forgot others) and he went for a 3rd/4th liner +2nd. I don't think Penner was worth Tinordi+1st even if he fills a void.
Personally, I wanted Zherdev. Could have gotten him for nothing. Surely, he can be inconsistent, but still he's a 20G scorer. He scored 15 in 49GP with the Flyers but that's with very limited Ice time including very low PP minutes. I'm sure he could have been very useful to us and for free. Too bad.
