His contract renegotiation period begins with game 1 of the playoffs this year (assuming he's allowed to play). Unfortunately for Penner his ship may have already sailed in Sutter's mind, but my guess is he will be playing in game 1.
I don't think it matters how Penner performs in the playoffs this year. As you stated, the ship has already sailed. The Kings can't endure another season like this from Penner. It's time they brought in a winger who can show up to play most nights and will be regularly paired with Richards and Carter. Hopefully Lombardi will able to find one this off-season via trade or free agency. Penner can go elsewhere to drive coaches and fans mad with his inconsistent play.
