Bottom line is They both need to be replaced.
What does Penner bring when he's not scoring?

People love to hate on King because he doesn't wow people. He isn't skilled. But there's not a single Kings forward who is as consistently the first man in on the forecheck as King.

He fulfills his role and doesn't take shortcuts, and he does it for a reasonable price.

I neither love nor hate him, but he does get a lot of unwarranted hate. From a pure skill standpoint, there are definite upgrades. But he has an appealing combination of utility and cost where he is a low maintenance option at left wing. What you see is what you get.
