Looks like one of Benn's goals got changed to an assist. He also scored in the shootout but it wasn't enough for a win.

Here's an interview with Benn about why he chose the Freezers and what he's been doing. Anyone else think he looks a lot stronger?

Last night's game highlights

Nice play by Benn to spring Pettinger at the end of the clip...

Benn had a pretty nifty pass through traffic to set up that secondary assist of his.

So let's say for the sake of argument that the NHLPA finds this latest proposal agreeable enough to negotiate over and in, say, another week a deal is mercifully reached. That would leave a little over a week before the start of the new condensed season on November 2nd.

If you were the Stars, what would you be willing to offer Benn to make sure you had a #1 center for the opener? Would you be prepared to play with Eakin and Wandell as your 1st and 2nd line centers until Roy is healthy?

I would sign him to $150M over 25 years because it doesn't matter if I overpay, the league will lock the players out and force them to take a paycut if it's too much.

I think ... maybe hope is more accurate ... that the framework for a deal is in place. If I was just trying to make a slightly educated guess .... Benn's people didn't want a contract pre lockout in case there was a rollback of salaries. The reason that might not be accurate though is the huge number of players signed this summer. They obviously weren't that worried.

It's interesting to think about how this might favor either side and where the leverage lies.

On the one hand, if Benn wanted a long-term deal rather than signing a bridge contract, the potential length could be limited to 5 years. Then again, is that really bad for him? That could take him right up to UFA age, depending on when that gets defined.

Obviously the Stars will have big time pressure on them to get something done, so that would seem to favor the player. But they'll be in good shape in terms of their cap picture and flexibility, so it's really just a matter of principle if they're willing to budge off the bridge contract mantra. I just have a hard time believing that Gaglardi would be fine with going into his first full season without his #1 center as he and his team continue to try to get people excited about Stars hockey.

Jamie mentioned he might stay over here in Hamburg until he signed with the Stars, even if there's a done deal between NHL/NHLPA

So even when the actual lockout is done we'll have to deal with a Jamie Benn lockout? What wonderful news for a Stars fan.

When he signs he is all yours, but until then he's got a valid contract here, can play hockey at a pro level and looking in his face during the games and practice... it's not like he hates it here

It's really hard to know what management is thinking because we (and they) don't know things like UFA age, contract term limit possibilities, etc. I have to say that the idea of a two-year bridge contract for a player of Benn's caliber has always seemed silly and unrealistic. I would be absolutely floored if he signed a two-year deal. Regardless of what management hopes, I don't think the bridge contract is the way to go for him.

I think the best we can hope for is something that buys out a year or two of unrestricted free agency or a three-year deal that still leaves one RFA year.

That was always going to be part of the deal. The fact that this would be the situation is probably exactly why he didn't sign before the lockout AND partially why he opted to go to Europe and play some hockey.
