A center that can do various things is more valuable than a winger that doesn't do various things. When Penner isn't scoring in the regular season, what is he doing? Sitting in the press box it seems. At least Stoll can win a faceoff and kill a penalty.

Maybe Lombardi can't bring Stoll back for the same exact deal as Penner. Don't bring Stoll back at all then. Who replaces him? Some other free agent you have to overpay in money or years? A prospect who may not be ready?

And maybe your right, there might not be a market for Stoll. But what does that tell you about Stoll and what teams think about him and what hes making.
At the same time, there might be a market for Stoll. What would that say about him? Other than he must be gotten rid of right away.
