The Kings traded beans for a useful playoff player, and won the cup, so they are happy.

But just because they won the cup doesn't automatically make the Oilers lose the deal. If we had kept Penner he would have had 2 horrible seasons, and would have signed elsewhere. So we would have literally been left with nothing. His depature marginally hurt the Oilers, and Klefboms emergence will have a bigger impact
This is pure speculation for all we know Penner could have exceled here playing with RNH or something. More speculation but if we had Penner perhaps we wouldn't have been playing guys like MPS above his head or have guys like Phillip Cornet in the fricken lineup. Maybe we could have took a step in not being the worst team in the league and have been competing for the playoffs by now. To me that would have been worth more then Teubert and a mid 1st round pick.
