God, THIS. I love Mike, but Simmonds is EXACTLY who I want in Penner's spot right now. He was one of my favorite players while he was here, he is just such a great all-around player that does everything and does it all well. He won't score 40-50, but he will score 30+. He isn't a goon but he hits hard, plays rough, and will drop the gloves. He isn't Datsuyk, but he has the hands to make a move and take it to the net or dish a sweet pass to the open man. He is big and tough enough to park in front and get the dirty goals.

I don't think we could get him back for Bernier + A Mart, especially considering how well he is playing in Philly, but I sure would like to try.
