... I don't buy this notion that Penner is lazy and has no work ethic. If Stoll and Greene vouched for this guy, I'm willing to believe that a lot more than media/message board scapegoating. There's always this quest to single out someone to blame, even though game 3 was unquestionably a team loss with many mistakes across the board.

Last season, Justin Williams was one who was at fault on a sequence that cost the Kings a game in the playoffs, and I didn't come across any story entitled "Time for the Kings to be patient with Justin Williams is up" despite Williams scoring just 20 points in his last 40 games prior to the playoffs. Williams got to play a full and mostly healthy season in 2010-11, and played pretty well.

Who's to say Penner won't benefit from being with the Kings from the beginning of training camp next season?
