As stated before: you can't teach size and Penner uses his body better than many other Top 6 in the league, AK included.
I don't think many people would choose AK over Penner. However AK is on our team and to get Penner we would have had to pay a hefty price.
I could buy a new car that's slightly (but obviously) better than mine but it would cost a fair amount of money. Meanwhile selling my used car would fetch me very little. See my point? The upgrade did not seem worth the cost for Pierre Gauthier, and honestly I agree with him.
