Never seen anyone take such short shifts unless it was for line match up cases which this is not.
I noticed that also. Must be annoying for his linemates as well. I do agree with you though that, "I cant imagine a player not having enough drive to want to try hard." I don't buy the whole, "He doesn't care" bit. Penner never did and never will look like John Tonelli on the ice. Noone expects that, but it's not even "slow"....it's more like "stop" as if he forgot how to skate at all.
Again, the conditioning thing doesn't make much sense though, because he was playing normal minutes in Edmonton. Yeah he's slower but can't possibly be this slow.
