Penner has decent value, he's shown that he actually might bethe player he showed glimpses of with the Ducks, before the Edmonton QO fiasco. At the very least, he has that higher gear when the games matter most.

However, looking at the LA Kings' salary structure, they have 12 players signed next year with $54M allocated to those 12 players. Yikes!! Penner doesn't offer the Kings any salary cap salvation, so most likely they'll want the option of trying to re-sign him at a discount. If they could get him at $2.5M, that would be a big help to their salary structure/depth.

I think Lombardi might just hold onto him and risk losing him for nothing if he decides to go for the money somewhere else.
