Tragically, it is a lose-lose-lose situation now. If Penner is traded this summer the Kings will not get anywhere near the value they gave up to get him. If he stays and has a bad season, he'll be gone the next year. If he stays and has a good year, he'll be gone anyway since it would be too risky to sign him to a long term contract and watch him float for 3-4 years. He'll be gone just about the time that Teubert and the whomever Edmonton selects with our 1st pick will be starting to make their mark.
