I find it hilarious that a lot of people feel he'd be fine on the fourth line. When Todd Marchant played on the fourth line just about everyone here screamed about playing someone 2 million or more for that role but it's fine with Penner. I'm still holding out hope that this is a bogus rumor.
He's not going to be pigeonholed into a spot he can't succeed. They will try him with Getzlaf and Perry, and if that doesn't work he'll move down the lineup. He can always be traded because some team will want him for the playoffs. This is seriously almost zero risk.

This might work too.

Penner - Getzlaf - Perry
Silfverberg - Bonino - Selanne
Winnik - Koivu - Cogliano
Etem - Rakell - Palmieri

Even though I have said that I would have him back for a low price, I almost vomited when I read the title.

2mil is nothing considering what players are getting every where right now, and Penner actually has a record to show for even though he's known to be a slacker. Still I'm wondering if that money could be spent more wisely. Of course if the management thinks that Holland is good for 2nd line center, then I can maybe understand that they aren't going after Grabovski, and the top 6 was in need of more experience 'cos relying on Etem, Palmieri and Silfverberg would be mad. Penner did score well in Anaheim and this could turn out to be a very good deal.

Penner-Getzlaf-Perry
Silfverberg-Holland-Palmieri/Selänne
Winnik-Koivu-Cogliano
Etem/Beleskey-Bonino-Palmieri/Maroon/Beleskey

1st line would be huge and could score a lot and behind them would be a great depth of players who can play a role and score.

Great signing at that money and term. Makes the kids fight for ice time and adds depth at no risk. Next up Teemu and a 2nd line center.

This will be Bob Murray's worst move of the offseason - hands down. Absolutely ****ing pathetic to bring a lazy, unmotivated, no production winger back into the fold trying to recapture something from 7-8 years ago. ****ing embarassing.

I want to believe Penner > Maroon no matter what at this point, but if Penner is to sign and flops on the top line, he would be no better than Maroon on the fourth line. If that's a possibility, this may be a total waste of a move.

I'm of the opinion that everybody who says it is a good risk is really only looking at the money side of it. This is BM resorting to his former self as a dumpster diver hoping to catch lightning in a bottle. If we didn't have so many young guys capable of winning that job it would be one thing to plug in Penner and just get through the season. But if we are counting on Penner taking us into the playoffs then it appears we are not thinking that highly of all our young talent.
When did he change?

Every offseason you can assume this will happen:

1) Ducks sign a former 1st round pick with or without skill.

2) Ducks sign player who was once a solid contributor but hasn't put it back together.

Breath. It's a 1 year deal with absolutely no risk. We aren't even a cap team. If Penner performs, great. If not, ride him in the press box until the postseason.

Does this happen to be the same producer that had Getzlaf to the Leafs?

Well, as somebody who has previously been a bigger critic of BM I have been coming more to his side. I thought the last couple of years he was getting away from dumpster diving and calling it our big move of the off season. While the Ryan deal is obviously this year's biggest, signing Penner has to be considered some kind of reclamation project. BM must think there is a decent chance Penner can fit back in like he has in the past. That's where I felt he had a relapse. But I understand if you and others saw it as dumpster diving as usual for BM.

In any case, it is disappointing wasting a roster spot on him.

If true... awesome deal.

Year after year, watching getz and perry with no partner. Put someone good with them, and that person starts struggling positionally. Throw penner on there. Good or bad.

Like people have said. You can hate the guy for signing offer sheet, but i love this signing.

If this rumor is true, I get the impression that Selanne is not coming back, or there is going to be a trade with some of our young players.

Penner-Getz-perry (He is obviously brought in to see if he can fit with them)
Silf-Bonino-Palms (Pretty young, I would rather have Palms on the first line)
Winnick-Koivu-Cogs (wont change this line)
Beleskey-Holland-Etem (Actually could be a good line, and allows Etem to play PK)
Maroon, Staubitz

Those wanting Rakell, plan on seeing him in the AHL this year. He will get a call up at some point, but he is a year away.

Checking to see posters who bashed bobby for being lazy or streaky liking the idea of penner joining the team.

Penner is a LW. We now have about 94 LWs. Center, anyone? Grabovski?

The difference is that Ryan was being paid a lot more. Penner is basically no risk.

I don't think that this has anything to do with Selänne because no one knows if he continues or not, even he doesn't know it yet. Trade seems unlikely IMO because seems to be high on everyone right now.

Yes I'm sure it's all about the money... Lets see if your singing the same tune when maroon,Kp, rakell are scratched or having to play on the 4th line because of this guy

Since signing a cheap one year deal is the same situation as bobby. Do you ever think before you post?

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


We can always trade Winnik if we feel Maroon is better than him. Murray has tradeable assets. Rakell will start in the AHL playing on a line with Noesen.

Comparing a 1 year 2 mil UFA signing to a potential franchise forward is laughable.

The guy was healthy scratched on a very thin forward group in LA.. Kings fans want him gone, those are red flags in my book.

Yes perhaps it is a unfair comparison. I just prefer players being implemented on our top 6 have the ability to "hang" with the pace of play week in and week out, especially with our forwards in waiting. Bobby, unlike penner, eventually scores goals and gets back to play defense. With Penner your just getting the lazy, first one off the ice type guy that looks tired. So yes, I was wrong to compare the two, hopefully you aren't laughing anymore because this isn't funny.
