Silfverberg isn't small or speedy (he is a good skater though).

Price is right, term is right, fit is right.

Ducks can slot Penner throughout the top-nine, depending on how he performs. 2M isn't a burden and one year means they're not committed to him if he doesn't perform and he has incentive to prove he's still valuable in the NHL. He could potentially fit well on the top line as people have said, but won't be a burden if he ends up playing in the middle-six with some PP time either. Good signing.

He had 37 regular season points in three seasons with the Kings. He had 39 points with Oilers during the year we acquired him. Tells you everything you need to know.

He'll probably produce more, I am sure he will be given more offensive opportunity than he was in LA. I know he didn't want to leave the area, so kudos to him in accomplishing that.

Come on Mac-T... throw 5M over 2 years at him. He's reliable enough to play on the third line, he's big and he's durable.

They have the room so even if he ends up making 2 mill to role around the 4th line I am fine with this at 1 year.

Yup. Good for everyone involved, really.

Like the teams needed any more friends

I'm convinced these guys all BBQ together all offseason while laughing about the Kings-Ducks fans rivalry. "Man, our fans are dicks!"

Figured Ducks or Oilers. Likely Ducks, as he never really wanted to be in Edmonton.

PPG line re-united? Expect 30 goals from Penner IMO

No matter what, the guy always tends to find a way to show up in the postseason.

Nailed it. Shell of his former self. Lazy self, that is. Look out to all the IHOP's in OC.

EDIT: To all those stating he was awesome in the post-season; Sure, he was, but that doesn't mean LA wouldn't have won the games he helped them clinch to begin with. LA is better off without him.

I will miss playoff Penner. Hopefully the ducks don't make it to the playoffs so I don't have to feel like I miss him.

I don't mind Penner back. Low risk. What I hate as a Ducks fan is this all but assures the Ducks are content with their center situation which I completely disagree with. Would have much rather had Grabovski personally.

Penner-Getzlaf-Perry
Silf-Bonino-Palmieri
Cogliano-Koivu-Winnik
Beleskey-Holland-Etem

Yes when he is in our line up our team is a different team (he missed a lot of last season). He does the little things.

He will be to start. Holland and Rakell will battle for roster spot and whoever wins will start on 4th line.

This is how I feel unless he is a locker room issue but I cant see that happening with BB as coach.
