The crop of blueliner FAs this Summer isn't that impressive.

- They also would be interested in a good young goalie prospect (Alexander Pechurski?)

All of this makes them an ideal trading partner, but again, Shero won't overpay.
How am I being desperate? I never advocated making the trade. Just in my opinion thats what it would take to get Benn out of Dallas. If I were suddenly appointed Dallas Star's GM I wouldn't trade Benn for Goligoski straight up. Benn is 20 has an insanely good contract for a couple more years and will be an RFA at the end of it. There will be solid defensemen come free agency.
