Penner on the block

08:18 AM ET 02.13 | Just like that, the NHL has turned the quarter pole on the season, and the trade deadline is on the horizon. Who is available? Well, a few teams would love Ryan O'Reilly, but God knows how that ends. Once again, Derick Brassard's name is coming up. ... Another player of interest is Dustin Penner. He's really in the doghouse with just three games played. If the Kings so desired, there would certainly be a market. He's on a one-year deal. Hard to pin down many more names. Some teams don't want to deal excess players because depth is critical. Very few teams are out of it, which prevents fire sales, and with the cap going down to $64.3 million US in 2013-14, you don't want to add a big salary if you can avoid it. Maybe things loosen up in the next week or so.

Pretty sure any franchise that would like to have him can also no longer advertises with Denny's and their short stack of Pancakes.

It's just a shade early for this bunk, isn't it?

Seriously, if the Kings want to offload Penner, there'd be a myriad of teams lining up, only if the Kings eat some of the contract.

"Penner on the block"

Again? I wonder why.

I have a suggestion: Dustin Penner for Ryan Whitney. Useless for useless. At least Penner can hurt somebody ... when they run into him. :-)

They might eat some of his contract but, they dare not touch his pancakes!

Hint: Burkie was involved.

Not when you have GMs like Kevin Lowe doing business in the NHL.

No way. The Ostrich has no peers to look up to.
