A steal.

IranCondraAffair 01-24-2013 08:41 PM

Deserves every penny.

Dellstrom 01-24-2013 08:41 PM

Wow. It took them that long to negotiate THAT?

What a deal... It's already a bargain and it's only going to get better, hell of a player. I thought he was going to get something absolutely crazy.

Avs44 01-24-2013 08:41 PM

Wow, great news for Dallas. What a steal

Sports 01-24-2013 08:41 PM

Solid deal!
I like it.

piqued 01-24-2013 08:41 PM

Pretty much what everyone thought it would be. No idea why it took so long.

Nice to have the extra UFA year.

NothingLikeAnEJ 01-24-2013 08:42 PM

Now there's no way O'Reilly can keep asking for 5 mill. Benn is better than him.

Marlo Stanfield 01-24-2013 08:42 PM

That's it? That's what the holdout was for? What a steal.

NuxFan09 01-24-2013 08:42 PM

Great contract! Benn is a player to build around, that's for sure.

Though I sometimes find Benn to be slightly overrated on here, perfect cap hit for the term. Now will he be a UFA at the end of this? Hope not for Dallas because I think it might take more than 5 seasons for them to put something competitive together around their core.

Vankiller Whale 01-24-2013 08:43 PM

Solid deal.

Maybe he wanted more???

Dr Pepper 01-24-2013 08:43 PM

VERY happy with this deal! :yo:

dwanmaster* 01-24-2013 08:43 PM

So can he play the third period then? Lol

TrillMike 01-24-2013 08:44 PM

So happy. We could really use him tonight

MetalGodAOD* 01-24-2013 08:44 PM

Jamie originally wanted a 3 year deal. Stars pushed for a UFA year.

ds4130 01-24-2013 08:44 PM

What a steal.

Big McLargehuge 01-24-2013 08:46 PM

Beautiful contract for Dallas.

Qward 01-24-2013 08:46 PM

Good for him!

bruinsfan46 01-24-2013 08:46 PM

When you get Jamie Benn for the same amount Joffrey Lupul just got, you've done well. Well done Dallas.
