RD I'm honestly curious, what offer sheet would you put together for Benn that you think the Stars wouldn't match?

A 12 year contract, 30 million the first year, remember, Aquilini and Gagliardi hate each other. I'm sure Aqua man wants to put the screws to him...like Doc said, two vancouver silver spooned wops bringing knives to a gunfight.

But hey, if we want to go 3-3 in failing to sign premiere B.C. born and bred talent, Gillis might as well.

Not to derail the thread but if you are within 20 or so feet bringing a knife to a gun fight is a pretty good idea. At least according to mythbusters

Ok so what what offer sheet (that follows the rules of the current CBA) would you put together for Benn that you think the Stars wouldn't match?

And seeing as there's a feud between the wops wouldn't that mean Gagliardi would match almost anything just to spite Aquilini, so he doesn't lose out to him again??

"sup my wop!"

Haha, as tongue in cheek as this may be, it can only help our cause.

At this rate, however, I'm starting to think Louie starts the season with your Vancouver Canucks.

______

On the Canes signing - $7M is a lot of cake for an enigmatic guy like Semin, but should we lose out on Doan, I think I would have been ok with the one-year flyer on Sasha - even at that $$ amount.

It's too bad that domino falls before the Doan one does, I suppose, but hey, that's the circus of closing doors that is the summer FA frenzy.

______

Lastly, after the Weber match, you'd have to think that the off-season market to trade a guy like Ballard would never be higher than right now...just sayin'.

1 year for Semin? Guess his reputation scared off a lot of teams from giving him a multi year deal. Like the Cane's up front now: Staal, Staal, Skinner, Semin, Ruttuu.
