[LAK/EDM] Dusitn Penner to LAK for Colten Teubert, 1st RND 2011, Cond 2nd/3rd 2012
Woot! Great deal! Dean finally pulled the trigger! Penner is going to be great with Kopitar and he goes to the net! 30 goal scorer on his way!
"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
This sets us up for both this season and the next. This is a solid deal and the one I originally wanted when all this craziness first started Penner is a goal scorer, big body, goes hard to the net, and he is durable. Solid move. We finally pulled the trigger. I am pretty confident that he can reach 30 with Kopitar.
Not so coincidentally, we did a detailed analysis of Dustin Penner, what he brings along with a Q&A with a knowlegable Oilers' blogger about a month ago. Enjoy it. Really gives good insight on the player.
Great deal for you guys (probably for us too). DP is a great player and a great teammate. This was all about having to sign him, Hemsky, and the kids all at the same time. Check out Oil change (I think it is episode 2 or 3) on Edmontonoilers.com and see him trash talking Perry and Getzlaf...hilarous! Good luck Pens.
DL got us a top 6 forward without giving up Simmonds, Schenn or Voynov. Not to mention other good prospects we have. Teubert kept dropping on the depth chart and thats with guys like Forbort and Deslauriers not even in Manchester yet.
