I'm not sure the Stars see a distinction there. They think Benn is great, sure, and they're not afraid to say it. They're still going to try to take advantage of his limited bargaining power.
The Stars' script is always the same... nickel and dime players under team control and err on overpaying UFA age players.
The Stars can credibly threaten to call Benn's bluff on holding out into the season I think with a healthy Roy and an improved top 6. They just need to get to a pressure point (where have we heard this before?) in negotiations.
Or he could be signed by tomorrow morning for the next 6 years, who knows.
