And if Penner scores 5 goals in his first 10 games next year, someone will make another thread like this claiming the Oilers got robbed. Fact is, we have 2 very capable LWs going forward in Hall and Paajarvi, there was uncertanity of us being able to sign Penner after next year, and he is approaching 30 and could very well be 32+ by the time we are ever a good playoff team.

If everything works out well, Edmonton will use that pick, move up a bit, and draft a great player, and Penner will play very well for the Kings next year and help them go deep into the playoffs.

This feels like Mark Parrish for Tambellini/Grebeshkov all over. Cliff Ronning was just as useless. Deadline deals have been pretty sucky for the Kings.
now you know how Oiler fans feel about "getting robbed" from you guys

how about this counter offer...

to LA - Jimmy Carson, Martin Gelinas, 15 million, and 1st rounders in 2012, 2014, 2016

to Edm - Gretzky (you can keep McSorley and Krusher)

makes the Penner deal seem extremely minor in comparison, doesnt it?
so yeah, Oil fans dont wanna hear about how bad this trade was for you anymore

You sure you want to give away 3 firsts for a guy who has been retired for 12 years

well, i was just saying if they want a 'do over', so do we

and yeah your right, i think i'll take the 2012 and 2014 off the table, they can keep the '16 pick, we should be contending by then (i think i would still take Gretz at 50 than Penner at 28 lol)

Love it how Edmonton fans suddenly come out of the closet as if they knew this all along. For you guys it shouldnt matter how Penner performs as a King, although I understand it feels better. Fact remains he played okay in Edmonton and was a part of that team, the picks and prospects still have to pan out.

The Kings didnt give up a ransom but because he's just as useless as those picks at this point it certainly feels that way.

Welcome to HF, where first round draft picks are only useful if they belong to your team...

If you can't read the sarcasm/humour in the post you quoted; you should go have a nap.
Oiler fans in general are disappointed that Penner hasn't been playing better for LA this post season
