Hey guys and gals this is my first post so be gentle (cuddling after is preferred!)

Anyways Ive been keeping up with the forums for a while now and enjoyed the caos that is CDC! The latest topics being the holes we have a who to sign to fill those holes and there is a name that I havnt seen come up yet and am supprised.

RFA Jamie Benn I say give him an offer sheet of 4 or 5 mil for 5-6 years or something like that, this kid would be the perfect fit for this club along side kesler! Big, tough and hasnt scored less than 22 goals in a season.
With Dallas having signed Roy and Jagr they might be neglecting Benn long enough for someone else to pick him up, yes I know Dallas still has 20+mil left in cap space but its at least worth trying for!

Thoughts?

Dallas would match whatever we throw at him, and 4 to 5 mil seems low given the market. Benn is at the core of the Star's restructuring.

Welcome to the board.

Theres no way Dallas will release Jamie Benn to anyone and with the bright future ahead of the stars I dont see why he would want to leave either

I would have to agree with the other responses. I don't think there's any way Dallas would let him go. I bet they would match any offer immediately.

yeah by the time i got to the end of my topic I realized how much cap space Dallas still had, I would throw every last dollar of what we have left, $5,321,66, but I dont think it would be enough!

Dallas would match any OS, and would not trade his rights unless what's coming back made them better today, and tomorrow.

Benn would be great but he is Dallas' franchise player. Kind of like Nash only better.

Dallas would match - but you have definitely identified a very attractive player to offer sheet, particularly when negotiations with Dallas seem like they could take a while.
He's a left winger, so the Canucks would likely have to turn around and move Booth.
You'd probably have a better chance of acquiring him by offering Booth in a package for his rights.
I don't see that resulting in Benn coming to Vancouver, but hey, this is what CDC is here for - discussions like this.
Welcome to CDC.

He might be a good fit, but I don't think it would be possible. Dallas probably wouldn't let him go.

Not possible. Benn is not going anywhere, lol. You don't let a player like Benn go, rofl. Dallas would just laugh, and match.

RIP LB RR PD

I like the idea, but as others have said, not likely. He's too valuable to Dallas, too valuable in general, and not sure he'd want to come here anyways. Where would he play? Probably first line or second line, which means that one of our top six is gonna have to be moved somewhere else.... not sure it's workable.

Welcome to the board, anyways.

Dallas would definitely match anything under 7 Million, after that idk. But If the Canucks were to make an offer sheet, they'd have to clear some cap, and some how offer enough do that Dallas would not be able to afford him. (we aren't getting him is what I'm trying to say)

He is their future... the Stars have said that they are commited to building a winner by adding peices AROUND Benn, meaning that they aren't going to trade him.

As much as I would love to get him, it won't happen. This guy is going to be the face of the fanchise for the next ten years.

Solid but apparently Nieuwendyk was playing around with his roster and had this penciled in:

Eriksson-Benn-Jagr

I guess the 2nd would be something like: Whitney-Roy-Ryder

I'm also thinking Eakin will be 3rd line center. The top 6 looks solid
