I suppose that's true but now we're looking at pretty insane hypotheticals. Nothing in Benn's past has even hinted that he has a desire to play in Edmonton so I don't really think it's realistic to consider that an option.

Let's be honest here: Justin Schultz was one of the first big fish we've nabbed in the last two decades and I still think the biggest factor behind his decision was playing on a young team where he could get playing time and be allowed to make some mistakes.
