Then the whole team is terrible on the offense side of things not just Penner (who struggled with injuries early) to the point where TM is fired... Sutter comes in, Penner has a setback which he comes out and says exactly what happened pancakegate... now that he's healthy, Sutter is adjusting things and Penner is playing his best hockey as a King...

How exactly has Penner not been completely and openly accountable and professional about every single thing that has happened to him up to this point?

Same with Stoll, I understand he's overpaid for his role on the team now, but try to keep in mind he was a 2nd line C when he signed that contract and is seeing diminished icetime due to Richards and Loki. And he's still the only C the Kings have that is consistently good in the faceoff circle and still solid defensively.

As far as the worst Kings ever go, Jeremy Roenick, Valeri Bure, and Beachball Cloutier all say "hi."
Roenick-58 games played in a Kings uniform, 9 goals, 13 assists, 22 points and a minus 5.
Penner-54 games played in a Kings uniform, 5 goals, 12 assists, 17 points and a minus 4.

I think this is where you tell me stats don't mean everything.
