I do believe this trade was made for the 2011-2012 as well, the Kings needed a LW they got one, it's not as much of a glaring a need.
Are we to blame Penner if he can't produce points because our two best forwards are out? I think that's somewhat unfair.
Good Lord - no points in his last six games - almost 5 of those games were WITH Kopitar.
If the change to a new system is that severe for Penner to adapt to then DL and the scouting staff should have evaluated that possibility and not made the trade.
I'll bet TM and DL are far less enamoured with Penner's play than you guys are. He has been Dwight King for the past two weeks.
