As per that last retweet from Jamie Benn's agent, Benn has agreed to terms on a 5 year deal, believed to be worth, $5.25M per year.

Great news. Now I got a complete lineup for my fantasy league :D


But on a more serious note. That's actually a pretty good deal for Dallas. I thought that he would be getting closer to 6.

No surprise.

Now it is just down to O'Reilly and PK.

We really should try and make a move for O'Reilly now. He'd be the ideal replacement for Kesler - essentially a Kesler 2.0. Trade Ballard for picks, sign this guy for around the same amount as Ballard and suddenly:

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Burrows - O'Reilly - Higgins
Hansen - Schroeder - Raymond
Weise - Malhotra - Lapierre

Edler - Garrison
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Tanev - Vandermeer
Barker
Alberts

Deep offence, deep centers and deep defence = cup

Did Kesler get traded for O'Reilly? Or dissapear? Or third option is this while he is out?

LOL Edmonton really fked up their salary structure with that signing. They gave him Kane/Toews money after accomplishing what exactly?

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Better yet they should've just drafted Segin but, you know, whatever.

That reminds me: What a mediocre decision by Toronto to trade Seguin.

I'd LOVE to have O'Reilly, but I'm not sure we have the cap space. :/

Another player better than Lupul, cost less than Lupul... sighs.... I feel bad for the Leafs sometimes, I want to see them do well but every time something good happens they just have to screw it up.

Do you think Toronto will go for Simon Gagne in LAK? They'll probably dump Komisarek to LAK, since the latter needs a D-man, as a result of Greene's injury.

Isn't the tax rate far lower in Texas than almost anywhere else in North America? That could certainly factor into Benn's decision to sign at that amount.

Benn will not leave Dallas especially now because he gets to play with his brother. He said that was one reason he really wanted to get a deal done with them.
