Well he is doing it again . Dustin Penner is back to playing the up-tempo physical game that first made Kevin Lowe to offer him that ridiculous offer sheet 2 years ago.Penner seems to always thrive at the end of the season.Last year in the 07-08 season, Penner played poorly for the first half of the season until just after half point ; where it seemed a fire had been lit under him and he went on a torrid pace to end with a semi-respectable season.

This season is the same story. With Penner starting off horrendously and being a major source of ire to the Edmonton fans. Until after the all-star game in which he picked up his play again and has been playing well again. Recording 3 goals and 6 points in his last 5 games.Which would bring him on pace to finsih with about the same totals as last year.

My issue is , why does Dustin not always play this way? If he did he could reach the potential that has long been heralded for him , rather then stewing in mediocrity and beinga target for ravenous fans.

I like the fans would love to know why Dustin?

A penny for your thoughts.

4.25MM is why. He gives us just enough to keep thinking "yeah, potential, that's why he's making the big bucks"

He comes into the season out of shape... takes him to the all star break to get back into game shape
