Radar played with an NHL rookie in Landeskog, guy with stone hands in Winnik, over the hill Hejduk and Steve Downie in the later parts of the season and despite the fact that Radar's line was used as a shutdown line for the first couple of months, depite the obvious talent gap between Radar's and Benn's linemates, despite Radar's line starting majority of it's shifts in their own zone he still managed to score only 8 points less than Benn. And to top it all Radar is vastly superior to Benn when it comes to defense, faceoffs and staying out of the penalty box.

It's OK for Stars fans to decline the offer, but the fact that they act insulted by it is an inslut to sanity.
Benn mostly played with Ott and i forget the other scrub.
