Does anyone really miss Colten Teubert?
While I will never defend Pierre MacGuire on anything, that Penner deal was an overpayment. He proved his worth in the playoffs to a degree, but he was a collosal bust in LA before that. I remember many on this board saying we should just waive Penner at the trade deadline just to get rid of him. So while yes, he had a solid playoffs, it's not like he made it look like getting him for a 1st, a 3rd and a prospect (who I say will still make it as a decent NHLer, ala Steve Staois-type) was some steal on our part.
Nine goals and 23 points in 84 regular season games and four goals and 13 points in 26 playoff games is not what anyone here would have said is successful and worth it at the time that trade went down.
