Agree.

What sensible win-win, preferably keeping Kreider, is a deal we can make that gives us Benn for 3 years?

What would Dallas want?

If we ate a portion of his contract (the only really huge one on NYR not Gabby or Nash), could we send Brad Richards back? Would he go?

If yes to those, then
B. Richards + X
for
J. Benn + y
