Maybe I'm being extremely naive or unrealistically optimistic, but I just don't see any reason to panic here. Both sides are dealing with a new set of parameters and both are trying to get the best deal possible. I don't think the timing of a deal has anything whatsoever to do with how the team performs, either. I'm definitely going to hold off on drawing any long term conclusions as to Benn's desire to play in Dallas. Somebody older can probably help me out here but not all of Modano's contract extensions were easy as pie, were they? And at one point in time Mr. Avalanche himself Joe Sakic signed an offer sheet with the New York Rangers.

And Sturm publicly calling Benn selfish, even if he has an ear-piece at the negotiating table, isn't really his place. I'd love to know how much he makes and publicly debate whether it's too much or too little.
