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.
Wooty and KF you guys have nailed it entirely.

When Penner goes to his next team his scoring will increase and defence will suffer for it (back tthat is at all possible) but I will be surprised if he ever finds the handle again.

Such a disappointment.
