We should learn from the Leafs mistakes. Dealing away 1sts is a dumb thing to do. Even if Benn is wicked, no sense dealing away picks. Markov, Plekanec, Cole... those guys are okay to trade away but keep the picks.

Look at the Leafs, they got a top ten scorer last year and the deal is still considered a disaster. I've seen that movie before and I don't like Horror shows. No thanks.

If the Stars want to deal away Benn (they won't) that's fine. They can have all the vets they want and they can have Leblanc (don't know why they'd want him) but no picks....
I have no problem dealing a 1st for a proven commodity like Benn. You'd hope that a 1st could turn into a Benn after a few years after he's drafted. Benn is that, now.
