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.
why not get both.I agree I thought Penner was stillvery servicable and I was in favor of re-signing him, however to a lessor contract around the 2-3 mil range. I fear now that his price tag may be going back up to 4mil.
