I think they have to get him signed today or tomorrow.
hockey's one of those sports where a guy can come in and just start playing. sure, chemistry may be a bit of an issue to start, but the learning curve to adjust to teammate tendencies should be relatively short. coaches change lines abruptly all the time. and for the most part, midseason trades don't result in massive confusion with the new player and the new team.

that said, i'll play the prediction game and say benn is signed friday.
