This is the first local media member to confirm what a few in the national media have already said.

Bob Sturm is also claiming the Dallas Stars are offering Jamie Benn comparable contracts to Eberle, Seguin and such.

He's speculating that Benn and his agent are pushing for a shorter term contract, and it sounds like they're expecting the same money. Basically, the insinuation seems to be he's looking for full value ($5 to $6 million) on a 4 year deal.

If that is true ... I don't care if he's not signed to start the season. That's a terrible situation for Dallas to be in. That puts him as an UFA in 4 years.
