Penner didn't forget how to play hockey at a high level. I was for re-signing Penner before the playoffs, he turned the corner before the season even ended. He would be cheaper than Parise and already fits in the room.
I would agree with that. Brown wasnt the same the rest of the season that year his son was born. I think everyone has been through relationship problems and can understand how depressing it be and the psychological torment depending on the situation. In any case...he's been incredible and i've always liked his personality based on his interviews and twitter responses. Hopefully, he can be resigned at a low cap hit for 1 season and see how he does.
