So I'm OK with them passing. If Penner or Seto could play center obviously this would be a different story.
Penner played a bit of center here, and I thought he looked good there. He has a good defensive game and IQ and was at least average on the draw iirc. I still think he's a good option that can play up and down the lineup in any position.

To be fair, I haven't seen much of Penner lately, but I think being held accountable by the fans is a good thing for a guy like him. He had his best years, and a couple bad ones also, while here. Give him a 1 year, it's a low-risk high reward scenario in my eyes.
