Penner defends himself against Greene’s accusations

Let’s get right to it.

A few weeks back, Matt Greene came out swinging. The long reigning champ of comedy within the Kings locker room had heard enough. Two of his former Oilers teammates were coming for his crown, but the 28-year old defenseman wasn’t going down without a fight.

He warned the public, don’t buy into the hype surrounding Ethan Moreau, who he claimed had been riding his coattails…or Dustin Penner, someone Greene said he’s been nursing along for years.

Moreau had his chance to respond here on MayorsManor, boasting that Greene and Penner are only funny because they stole his best material when they left Edmonton.

Now, Dustin Penner steps up with his retort…

“I’d like to put this issue to bed once and for all. What was Greener in that last article, something about how he took me under his wing? Well, that’s a cute way of putting it when he pretty much begged me for a month straight to move in with him. I was pretty happy and content in the hotel. But, he ended up saying I could stay there for free and that he’d give me a check monthly just to stay there – so he could learn from me. And I think we did pretty well with getting him up to an acceptable level of humor, as everybody thinks he’s pretty funny now.”

Then, out of nowhere, he softened up just a bit…

“Obviously, we feed off of each other. We’re a good team,” said Penner.

Next, unintentionally, he confirmed their similarities when commenting about he liked the crazy shorts Greene wore at the Kings golf tournament last month – even acknowledging they shop at the same store and have many of the same brands in their closet.

Penner concluded by addressing the Moreau situation though, take a listen…

If you missed it earlier this week, Dustin Brown tried throwing a wrench into this little three-way dance by claiming the funniest guy on the team wasn’t any of those three – but, in fact, somebody totally out of left field (article linked below).

Why do I think we still haven’t heard the last of this?
