As for the trade, as a Kings fan, I'd do it. At least when healthy, Whitney has been a good solid player. Both contracts are up at the end of the year, Penner won't be back here long term. Penner is healthy and still sucks. Give me the potential top 4 d-man especially with the injuries to Greene Mitchell and Martinez.
You are out of your freakin mind. Did you even watch the playoffs last year? Penner was a beast during the playoffs. It's completely unfounded and ignorant with blind hate if you think Penner did not contribute to the cup run.

I don't care what kind of regular season Penner is having or will have. He's looked much better these last 3 games, and if he plays remotely close in the playoffs as he did during last year's, it's worth that gamble.
