Dustin Penner got traded near the deadline last year to the LA Kings in return of a prospect, a 1st round pick and a conditional pick. His cap hit is $4.25M.

I think Cammalleri has more impact on a game than Penner and more value despite the $1.75M difference in cap hit. Obviously he his more difficult to trade because less teams have the extra space, but he has more value.
There is no doubt that Penner is overpaid. I didn't pick $4.25M because of Penner.

And yeah, Cammalleri has more value than Penner.

Maybe the Habs should go out and get themselves a player like that. Oh wait, those kind of guys cost money. Money the Habs have spent on too many guys the size of Cammalleri. Again, it isn't that Cammalleri is a bad player. He is simply overpaid for what he provides and with another year remaining on his deal, I think that hurts his trade value.
