lol well i can hope right Slava is a good start ( a young stud defenseman with top 2 potential ) and a frist. If he traded hes not going to get a top star back. The only way he gets traded is if he won't sign so lower value. I actually think its not a bad offer the more i think about it. There is a thread saying there after a top 4 defenseman so we re filling a need of theres adding king and gagne to replace production (also clears some cap space not that we need it but helps) There was also interest in lokti earlier as they need a 2nd center ( or at least i was told he would fit ) Basically if he isnt signing there is value in my offer all they have to have is the best offer on the table.

Slava is a small start, haha. I just don't see it happening at all. Especially with the Kings. I think there would be a better offer if given.

I'd do Kopi for Benn, but L.A. does not. They're similar players in that both play significant minutes, including time on the PP and PK, and are dangerous SH. The difference is that Kopi's offensive instincts are better than Benn's, even if he lacks the physicality that Benn possesses.

Thing is, they are needing more high quality talent. So yes, they'd be looking at star+ for Benn+ imo.

1)As awesome as Benn is I still think Gaborik is better offensively.

2)I would want Benn for the purpose of centering Marian Gaborik.

Oh, they'd be fools to. Everyone reading this thread -should- be smart enough to realize Benn isn't going anywhere.

Was more of a basis, since Kopi is more proven Benn would be added onto. Probably a D?

You think we have D to give away? Yes we'll need to add to Benn to get Kopi and the addition could be a draft pick, But, like I said, L.A. does not do this. Apart from what I added in the previous statement, Kopitar has 3 years of extra experience and six seasons of solid consistency in terms of production, including four 82 game-seasons. That cannot be replaced. Yes, I have no shame in saying Kopi > Benn.

They may not have a option if hes not signing or asking to much so they don't want to sign him you would take the best offer. Dallas wouldnt be in a postion of power they would be taking the best offer they would get and no way kings give up a star. I agree they maybe asking for a star + but asking with no postion of power they wont get it.

Kopitar? Doughty? Really? They have the right to ask for the world, but when was the last time a stud RFA on a contract hold-out was traded for a BETTER player? Doughty is younger then Benn and has averaged only 8 fewer points per year over the past three years as a defenseman while being a playoff stud. Kopitar (only a year and a half older) has averaged over 23 points per year MORE than Benn (the last three years) while playing one of the best two-way games in the NHL. No GM in the league would give-up Kopitar or Doughty for Benn.

I was more saying that'd be what LA would look at since iirc an LA fan was telling me that.
Kopi is > Benn.

Philly would probably consider Giroux for Benn+

That said, we wouldn't move him unless we're getting an upgrade (hence Doughty, Kopitar, etc.). We'd add too, obviously.

As in, the one-eyed in the kingdom of the blind? Maybe. However,

-We're not dealing him within the division.

-Dealing him for Voynov leaves a gaping hole at Benn's position. Our system is not full of top-centers.

I would be very upset if Lombardi gave up Kopitar for Doughty. I'm not saying I would do the deal. I just think the Stars would have Anze on their mind. Or Doughty. After that, Voynov++...even then, I just don't see it working.

Tbh, it's not really that insane of an idea. Would it ever happen? Hell no. But the idea isn't as bad as some would think.
