We all saw this coming with Penner...he had 1 big goal in the playoffs, but really, was he great? No. 3 goals in 20 games. Even Sutter said he almost didn't play him toward the end of the game against Phoenix where he scored the big GW.
That's the odd thing, when he wants to, he can be a force, use his size. But that doesn't happen frequently enough. Maybe SUtter is the kind of coach he needs to bring that out. But it's not good if the only way to motivate him is to bench him. I really thought after what DL said (that during the contract talks, Penner vowed to prove his worht, etc.) Penner would be that guy.
Maybe he will...maybe he's rusty...
