Dallas re-signs Jamie Benn (5Y/$26.25M)
 
Quote:

Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the club has agreed to terms with center Jamie Benn to a five-year, $26.25 million contract ($5.25 million per year -- the first year of the deal is pro-rated).

Benn is entering his fourth NHL season, all as a member of the Stars. Last season, the 23-year-old had a career year, setting personal bests in goals (26), assists (37) and points (63). He led the club in game-winning goals (7), multi-goal games (5) and was second in shots (203). Benn was also selected to his first NHL All-Star Game, where he took home the accuracy shooting title during the Superskills Competition.

“Jamie Benn has proven in his short, but very productive NHL career, that he is not only this franchise’s cornerstone player, but also an emerging superstar in the league,” said General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk. “We believe that Jamie has the necessary tools to continue his growth and lead this team into the next great era of Dallas Stars hockey.”

JAMIE BENN. :yo:

Coming soon to a Stars game near you!

So happy with this deal.

Eriksson - Benn - Jagr.

CANNOT WAIT.

:D i love it!

Brand New Stars 01-24-2013 08:47 PM

That line should be incredible

Troy McClure 01-24-2013 08:47 PM

It's not my money, so I don't care. I just want him in uniform ASAP.

Faidh ar Rud Eigin 01-24-2013 08:47 PM

Awesome.

cmwang 01-24-2013 08:51 PM

:yo:

But that took two weeks? Looks pretty much like exactly what you would expect

Dominic Roussel 01-24-2013 08:51 PM

I don't know, I've liked Roy with Eriksson so far. I'd like to see what a line with Jagr, Whitney, and Benn would do with Ryder on the wing with Roy and Eriksson. Maybe I'm the only one though.

StarsCaptainOU 01-24-2013 08:52 PM

YES!

Jamie you can go back to being my favorite player now. I was getting a little frustrated.

LatvianTwist 01-24-2013 08:53 PM

Hahaha I was guilty. Posted about Eakin putting Mayers on his ass on the main trade thread. Lol

He'll probably slot into line 2 initially, I'd think. Roy has a good thing going with Loui and Jagr.

Karitimes 01-24-2013 09:02 PM

I Love life again! This is a gem of a deal for a gem of a player.

Cspeirs4 01-24-2013 09:08 PM

Hey guys, just wondering what your depth chart will look like with Jamie Benn coming back into the lineup?

Benn - Roy - Eakin - Fiddler - Wandell - Scevior - Then we have Faksa as a very impressive prospect.

Yeah that's a nice stable haha. Any ideas what lines will look like? Watching the game right now and noticed:

Eriksson - Roy - Jagr
Whitney - Eakin - Ryder

Not sure about how the rest will look with him back in the lineup as well as your D corps?

You'd hope ... let's see if that happens.

Great contract ... Based on the numbers, my guess is Benn came down to the Stars. This really is a pretty damn good number for the team.

I did see Bobbie Mac said a big motivating factor for Benn was he wants to play with his brother. I fully expect to see Oleksiak called up tomorrow ... :sarcasm:

Joking aside ... Gully already said there's a good chance Rome plays Saturday, and that likely means Benn comes out. He and Rome were rotating with Daley in the "pre-season".

That happened in Jordie's first NHL game last season.

@StarsInsideEdge: Jamie Benn on his way to Dallas. Won't play Saturday, immigration issues to be resolved. Expected to play first game Monday in Columbus.
