I don't know why anyone would want to cut back on Hughes minutes by taking on another top 4 D. Let the kid develop!

Apparently the only 2 teams Jamie Benn waives his NTC for are the golden knights and the canucks...

To quote the great Karl Childers/Micky...

Hmmmmmmm...

I'm assuming you missed the part where Demko has looked very much the starter of the future (at only 23) and that Bishop and Benn make a combined $15.5M.....both of whom are in the decline phase of their careers.

Or was this just some click bait for SKYO?

No i didnt think Bishop was so expensive...so i missed it

Benn would be a huge addition...championship level upgrade. I was trying to buy him for cap space and young assets going that-a-way.

There must be a way to bring our own johnny pjs hometown hero

Benn has way too much term left. He was once a good player but he looks like he’s in the twilight at this point.

If you’re bound and determined to get him, Louie has to go the other way and there needs to de a good asset coming back with him. That’s one of the worst contracts in the league

Louie has to go back, but you’re nuts if you think Dallas has to give up assets. Benn is complacent and trying to play his way off that shitty team. He’s a 60 point winger not trying.

Some Kovalchuk rumours out there. How about:

Kovalchuk
for
Eriksson?

We shed a year in the contracts. :P

Benn is fading at alarming rate, don’t get attached to Yesterday Benn, he’s gone. This is a future bad Seabrook contract. The game is speeding by him
