Well, I named off the UFA fwds who make similar money to Penner. You can also add Jokinen, Ruutu, Arnott and Prospal to that list. I just don't see LA moving Penner for two assets who aren't going to add too much to their team, and then going out and spending a 2nd rounder to replace Penner. Maybe they trade Penner for a pick, but I don't think they'd add anything to him for Butler and/or Regin, and I don't think they would trade him unless they had someone coming in to replace him.
