He's a big playmaking RW coming off a 65 point season...I mean, only 12 RWs scored more than him last season. Playing with stars or not, that's a pretty impressive feat.

I'm not sure why you'd have to add to acquire a guy like Tanev. Frankly, I'm not sure why Tanev would even be in the same ballpark, value-wise.

Purcell's an established producer. I like Bennett as much as anyone, but Purcell's done it.
