I'm sure this has been discussed but is Jamie Benn not EXACTLY what this team needs? I know it has been widely speculated that he doesn't want to play in a big market, but overlook this.
When I think big, young, talented #1C he is one of the first guys that comes to mind. He fits the core age of the team and would be that big body to get Kessel the puck. Let's assume you could offer sheet him in the $5M-$6.7 range...the compensation is a 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
The 2013 draft class is top notch, yes, but we have a number of good prospects in the cupboard. Forfeit one year of high picks, or maybe trade a current roster player for a 1st or 2nd and you have your franchise #1C. Thats something I easily do...
