Maple Leafs need Maple Syrup - Toronto adds Dustin Penner
In an effort to add size and scoring touch to their club, Toronto has signed big bodied forward Dustin Penner to a 2 year, 7M$ contract that will pay him 4M$ in the first season, and 3M$ in the second.
"We realize we may have paid a bit more than market value, we Dustin at his best brings exactly what this club is lacking." Leafs GM TribalPhoenix stated in a conference call this evening.
"Dustin is the power forward we feel has been lacking with our club, and we are going to give him the chance to return to the centre ice position and will get his chance to assume a role on the top line alongside Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul. We're extremely happy to have acquired him, and see a bright forward for him to find his 30 goal form once again."
