I've got to get his minutes up; I've got to get his conditioning up so that he can handle those minutes at high intensity and that's hard to do right now with the schedule and playing every second day but I think down the road that we're going to see a good player in that sense.... I don't think it's a matter of the wind. I think he's a heavier guy than what he should be. He's a big body, and I'd like to get him to be a little bit leaner and I think that's going to really improve his hockey game with a greater level of intensity and keeping the pace and tempo of play.

That's Terry Murray talking about Dustin Penner. Shocking news: Dustin Penner's new coach thinks he's fat and lazy! Okay, that might be exaggerating, but the above did make me chuckle. For what it's worth, Penner's played 16:12 per game with the Kings after playing 18:27 per game with the Oilers.
