I would absolutely bring him back next year if this is the Penner we are gonna get.
Sutter has had a lot to do with that I'm sure, and I'm sure his divorce also affected his play a great deal, not unlike when Quick had his first child and his on-ice play suffered. Hard to think about work when major off-ice issues are going on - positive or negative.

He's been terrific this series.

Penner needed some major motivation and Sutter obviously has provided that.
