The Penner deal was a loss as soon as Teubert became a bust, the only way this deal looks half decent is if Klefbom turns out alright. We shouldn't even be including Klefbom, just like we shouldn't include Eberle in the Pronger deal or Lucic in the Samsonov deal. If these guys turn out great it makes the trade not seem so bad. But when the main guy we acquired (Teubert) is no longer with the org 3 years after the deal that speaks volumes to me.
The main piece in the Penner deal was LA's first.
