Perron is a better player than Penner, playing the same position and brings girt (plus way more competitiveness), and we aren't a playoff team. So how would Penner make us a playoff team? assuming he was still here. And theres no way wed have both Perron and Penner. The only reason we got Perron was because we had cap space, if we kept Penner wed have no cap space and couldn't make that deal

We need better D to become a playoff team, if only we had good D prospects....

Im not speculating he had 2 bad seasons, he actually had two bad seasons (3 to be exact). Its speculation he would have had good seasons
I'm pretty sure that we still could have got Perron even if we added Penner to the current roster. Its what good teams do, so maybe your right and the Oilers wouldn't have done it but it would have been stupid of them not to make that trade. And I don't care if Penner would have resigned here, the point is he could have played above several of the guys on the team in 2012 and protected some of our younger players and perhaps helped improve the team moral as I doubt finish DFL in the NHL for the 3rd time in a row. And I have no doubt we could have gotten at least a low 1st for Penner in 2012.
