I like Benn too but Vancouver doesn’t have the assets to trade for him. They’d want Horvat or Boeser to start

Agreed. Sure it would be nice to send them Gaudette, Dahlen and Louie but they’d tell Vancouver to fuck off

If only you could talk them into a similar quantity for quality deal to what they did for Séguin... something like Gudbranson+Virtanen+Demko and a pick.

I still have the PM from Farhan ridiculing a Kesler-Benn proposal circa 2012.

Benn isn’t trending well. Good player but the asking price would be bloated set to yesterday’s Benn.

He turns 30 this July. He makes $9.5 million until the end of season 2014-25. Ouch. A big ouch in a couple years

It would be bloated. Just like that massive gut of yours after a dozen tall cans of O’keefe Extra Old Stock. No idea why you still drink that shit

He’s easily worth $3.5 more than Loui Erikson.

Loui turns 34 a day before Benn turns 30. Let’s see how Benn’s 10 million per year looks in 3-4 years. He’s not trending well. If I was Dallas I’d move that future boat anchor contract out now otherwise they are looking at a Seabrook, Ladd, Alzner situation in a couple years. Washed up BC hockey players with terrible contracts

Eriksson and Benn play a different game. Eriksson plays a smart defensive game. When he does not score, he can still help the team defensively.

I wouldn't do that either! Face facts; Benn doesn't fit our new age group, not really. His best days are already behind him anyways.
Not to mention ANOTHER big mouth in the dressing room, so, fuck that.

That shits the best man. The smell reminds me of the bottom of the boat coming in at dusk...empty tallies of old stock floating in the bilge water with the fish guts. Try to keep that far shore in sight or we're fucked trying to find our beach

When I was a young lad my brother used to give my buddies and I hi-test to clean up the house after his parties. Back then 2-3 cans would get you a good buzz.

Trade] Edmonton acquires D Brandon Manning and D Robin Norell from Chicago inexchange for F Drake Caggiula and D Jason Garrison

[Trade] Panthers trade Alex Petrovic to Oilers for Chris Wideman, 3rd-round pick

What's up in Edmonton? Big shake-up!
Believe Caggiula was McDavid's best bud?
