What he said.

Penner gets a lot of **** around here, but he can play Sutter's system much better than Gagne could. Gagne seemed to shy away from the "hard" areas of the ice since his return and if you aren't scoring, then you aren't playing for Sutter. Gagne will fit in great in Philly and will put up points in their system. Will it be enough in the playoffs? Who knows, I just hope Gagne helps Philly get there.

King will continue to play for Sutter because he plays in the "hard" areas. Same with Penner, but he is judged game-by-game and shift-by-shift, but when Penner is "on" he is tough to move off the puck and Penner wears down the defense.
