From a financial / cap point of view as well, it has to be a complimentary player on a smaller contract.

If Penner doesn't find some chemistry with them, I think we have a couple very intriguing options for that in Palmieri and Silfverberg already.
Silfverberg intrigues me, in particular, because he has a wicked release and he seems to play well away from the puck. Palmieri is a talented kid, but sometimes I question his effort away from the puck.

I'm just not sold on Penner. He's been plagued with laziness for as long as he's been in the NHL. I think we'll see him moved around based on how he plays that particular game.
