Penner is out of shape, inconsistent, unreliable and overpaid and incredibly overrated. He's the last person I would want on this team.

Size is overrated sometimes. Don't just look for who's 6'4" 240lbs because size doesn't always equate skill or talent.

but he has proven before that he can play in this league, maybe a change of air is what he need's. we have to go beyond the stats sometimes.

But it seems to me that you're just looking at his stats... size, a couple of good seasons and a cup. Keep in mind the team he won the cup with was ridiculously deep and he had no shortage of forwards to feed him the puck. And the only reason he even got a big contract like he did was because Kevin Lowe is a douche and wanted to screw over any team he could. Honestly, I think he's literally the most overrated player in the entire league right now, save maybe the other contract Kevin Lowe basically gave to Thomas Vanek.

lol understood but what helps the situation if penner does come to montreal is that his contract is partially paid by the habs because it would be the rest of his last year, seeing that he hasn't had much success with the oilers he will sign for cheap if he does pan out with the habs. second he will see another player he won the cup with in moen, and second he will have a pretty good line mate with gomez to feed him and gio to pick up the rebounds or feed penner. if he needs someone to feed him gomez and gionta can do it. it's just a suggestion because we wouldn't have to sign him at the end of the yer or we can force him to do what bertuzzi did with detroit, sign for less.

I honestly don't think his cup experience really matters all that much. It's not like we're lacking that on the team, we have plenty of players with that including Gomez and Gionta. For all you know he'll ruin the Chemistry, or could be the next latendresse. I'd rather not give up assets to get him.
