Re Penner, In his last year under MacT he scored 17 goals, had 5 game winning goals and was +7 on a lousy team. All of this while being press boxed and benched repeatedly by MacT. The piece da resistance being when after one of our guys got abused he stood up and fought the opposing bully and promptly got press boxed the next game.

The year after Mact left Penner had 32 goals, 31 assists, plus 6 and was our best player.

MacT has his idea of the type of players he likes but he also showed he was not good at getting the best out of a number of players.
the problem that MacT had with Penner was he was lazy and inconsistent because of it. You're absolutely right that Mctavish has his idea of the types of player he likes... he wants guys who bust their ass and given how the team has played the past couple seasons is anyone going to cry is Mctavish starts shipping lazy guys out and bringing hard workers in?
