Yes and no.

He is the best option, kind of by default. Sutter doesn't trust Toffoli to play top 6 minutes and Clifford is just woefully miscast in that role.

But he has been bad, no debating it. The fact that he is the only realistic option yet still often finds himself scratched should tell you how bad he has been.

Penner needs to get his head out of his *** if this team wants to make a run, because it's not happening with Kyle Clifford as the 2nd line LW.
