I agree with you, but was Penner really not in shape? He just didn't use his size as we wanted him to. As quoted, it's "not in his DNA".

Just saying, we can want all we want, but how much more energy can we squeeze out of these guys? It seems the whole, "in shape" thing is dominating the headlines here.
We should be talking about the organizations mental compete level. I want to see our guys playing damn hard, finishing bodychecks, forechecking and not giving up on plays. Is the reason they are easy to play against relative to their fitness?
