It didn't appear that way when he started off with Kopitar and Williams. He still looked good in that first game with Moller in place of Williams.
As others have said, Penner is a good support player, not a go-to-guy. He was brought in to compliment Kopitar's skills, and he did do that. Both Kopitar and Williams were playing better and creating more opportunities thanks to Penner's play. He needs those types of players in order to be an effective player.
Now that the focus has turned on him, we are seeing more than ever just how much of a support player Penner truly is. He will never be a go-to-guy and Edmonton learned that not long after they gave him that offer sheet.
