I'm with you there. But that's exactly the type of trade PG would do. I don't understand why he's still allowed to do trades.
Post like this make me laugh, because PG hasn't ever had a trade like that as GM of the Habs. Some poster says here comes Penner, and ppl think that who PG wants just because a poster mentioned his name.
Even when PG traded for Kaberle, he didn't trade anything away, heck his when ppl first heard Cammy got traded to the Flames, everyone said, hereee comes Stajan, because that is the type of trade PG would make, look at how that turned out.
I ain't no fan of his, but he did surprise me with the Cammalleri trade. I actually like it a lot
I like it too, but I think we could have gotten more if PG would have shopped more. That's what pisses me off about him. Dude is so focused on some of his mancrushes (Penner last year, Bourque this year) that he won't shop his guys around more.
What trade did he do that? AK has 5 times the value of Penner right now.
The only way Penner is in the deal is as a salary dump so LA can add players, he would be basically coming for free and AK would get us a 1st.
Penner was coming off a career year though and wasn't playing that bad during the trade deadline. He also was signed an extra year which made it interesting for the teams that wanted to acquire him. Kostitsyn is a better forward IMO but he will be a UFA which might drop his value a little as teams will be extra careful
