I think the Stars will give Roy 5 years. I'm sure they realized that is the starting place term-wise for free agent centers of Roy's caliber before they made their comments about wanting to get him re-signed.

I also don't really think it matters much at all from an internal team perspective if Roy makes more than Benn while being a lesser player. These guys all realize that staying in this league and staying productive and healthy means they will be in Roy's position one day. Pay your dues and you'll get yours. I would argue that most teams' best players probably aren't their highest paid, it's really not a big deal.
