In my opinion, fitness shouldn't be an option in the NHL. Being an out of shape pro hockey player is just a giant middle finger to the rest of the world.
I think some levels of fitness are genetic. He maybe normal compared to other pro hockey players. He may also not have mentally taken up the "fitness" challenge required of him.

My favorite thing Penner brings is just a big mother ****er to grab opponents trying to be tough, and remove their desire to be tough with any of the Kings. I love it when some opponent is trying to rub one of the Kings forwards and suddenly Penner's arm grabs him from behind and just ends it.
