Question About Dustin Penner...& Comments on Carcillo

Coyotes fan here. I post here occasionally due to the fact that I live in the South Bay and I keep a close eye on the Kings as well.

I didn't see a player inquiry thread so I apologize if this is improper placement. I just have a quick question.

Dustin had pretty impressive numbers with the Ducks and Oilers before coming to the Kings, but an almost immediate drop-off when he arrived.

besides the goal he scored that took the Coyotes out and sent you guys to the finals ( ) he really seemed invisible every time we played each other. I know all the jokes about him around HF and what not, but I'm genuinely curious, what went wrong? Was he not a good fit? Did he get too comfortable being back in Cali? Too much firepower on your top lines that he just didn't get enough playing time? I never really understood what happened.

On a side note, I think you guys will love Carcillo. He gets a bad wrap, and sometimes he can be an idiot, but he really tamed himself in Chi-town. You guys may not like it now, but just wait to you see his first scrap with you guys. He knows what his job is and he's good at it. Realllly good at it. Expect a few one ouch knockouts. I think he will quickly become a fan favorite. Sharks fans said the same things some of you guys are saying about Torres when they acquired him, and they love him now. In my mind, he and Torres are similar players, but Carcillo may have a slight edge on him in fighting. Carcy is an exciting player to watch and I think you guys will enjoy him. To be honest, we all want him back. He and Cliff make your team an intimidating one Carcillo has an undiscovered offensive talent in him as well. You guys wipo be amazed a few times when you watch him handle the puck. He is capable of 15 goals. I just hope for your guys' sake that he wasn't brought in so they can let Clifford go. I know how much you guys like Cliff.

Take care!
