This would be risky for the Habs, if we had to hand over a few 1st round picks for Benn. He looks really good and would be yet another power forward for us, cant really have too many. Thing is, is his upside worth taking a few 1st round picks out of TTs hands ? Flyers and Weber was a bit different in that you know the Flyers are very likely going to be drafting late in the 1st for several years unless they royally mess up, and in return they would have gotten maybe the best D-man in the game, a franchise D-man still well in his prime that would put them in the top few teams for the Cup for several years. Habs have some very good pieces but I dont see how even with Benn wed be contenders in the next couple of years and in the meantime we really could be drafting top 10 for the next couple of years, though we could also be in the play-offs starting with this season. Tricky, tough call. Id be more willing to bet on Vancouver and Calgary. No way toronto because of Burkes stance on offer -sheets and it would be nutty for Edmonton to do it.
