Penner as the leading goal scorer and overall scorer - ultimately it is about winning games.

We have not gotten what we had expected from him. The year he was traded he put up good numbers in Edmonton and next to nothing when he got here.

2010-11	Edmonton Oilers	NHL	62	21	18	39	45	-12	--	--	--	--	--
2010-11	Los Angeles Kings	NHL	19	2	4	6	2	0	6	1	1	2	4
I agree completely we haven't got what we expected from him.

I don't think anyone expected him to score at the same level as he was in Edmonton, certainly not me. I was easily his harshest critic when the trade went down and said we overpaid, which we did. That said, even I expected more than 15 goals in 139 games (including the playoffs). That's a .108 goals per game pace, or 8.84 goals per 82 games. Prior to coming to LA his goals per game was .311, or 25.51 goals per 82 games. He's scoring at roughly one-third the rate he was coming to LA, and that's just unacceptable and nowhere close to us getting what we expected.
