I am thrilled. Thrilled beyond words. We wrote an article about acquiring Dustin Penner about a month ago and went into detail about his game and value in a Q&A with an Edmonton Oilers’ blogger. The trade is confirmed. We got him in exchange for Colten Teubert, a 1st round pick and a conditional pick (believed to be a 3rd rounder).

Mark this trade under “steal”. Colten Teubert may or may not ever be an NHL defenseman. He certainly has not shown anything worth talking about so far. He is slow, has questionable hockey sense but does bring a physical edge.

The real value here was the 1st rounder but the days of rebuilding are over. This team needed a scoring top six left wing now and we got him.

I have nothing but love for this trade. This is the player I wanted.

We wish the best for Colten and welcome Dustin Penner with wide open arms. GO KINGS!
