I am all for adding Benn to the Oilers...I just don't think he is worth any of the big four. I think he is a scorer. Ott is the better physical/defensive player on that team...but somehow he is two inches shorter

It isn't a huge stretch to think any of the young Oilers could become very good defenders...and it definitely isn't a stretch to think they outscore Benn.

Also, I don't think Benn is ever going to be a Selke candidate. If we were talking about Bergeron or Hanzal or Backes...or Datsyuk then it would be different.
