I could see Gagne coming back for another year if he stays healthy and remains semi productive, but Penner is a much longer shot.
Im not trying to pile on but I completely disagree regarding the play. The defender started out after penner but pulled up to defend the rebound. There were two defenders playing stoll. One spread out on the ice and one reset to clear stoll out or lock up the stick. Penner could have either chose to shoot or walk right in on elliot. I just rewatched the Game last night.

Fact is that st.louis showed Penner no respect all night and were givimg him nothing but space on the ice.
