Why would you trade away a 40 goal scorer and a good young dman for a player that is not as good as Neal at this point. Why subtract?

P.S. I am surprised you didnt say Subban +

anyways, Id love to have Benn on The Habs but I dont know if they have the assets to get him or if it would be worth giving up the assets to get him.
If I was MON if I could trade Subban and get Benn I would, sounds like Subban wants too much money and having a future of Benn and Galchenyuk would be very nice to have. Size up the middle you can't go wrong with that.

I would like to see EDM workout a deal with DAL. Having RNH and Benn as our top 2C would be fantastic. How about something like:
EDM
Benn
Fistric

DAL
Yak
Gagner
Potter or Peckham
2nd

This helps both teams out if Benn doesn't sign in DAL. EDM gets their 2C with size and some depth on the blue line.
DAL get a legit scoring winger that will probally get more goals then Benn and a 2C in Gagner. Potter or Peckham is to give DAL a bottom pairing dman.

Edmonton gives away the most valuable piece in the deal, why would they be adding so much?

Benn is grossly overvalued on this board in general. He's a great player and he had a very effective 2011-2012 campaign, but he's not worth a 1st overall pick+. I don't know how the love affair with him on this board started, you'd swear he's Nicklas Backstrom by the way people value him.

No Philly wouldnt Giroux is as untouchable as it gets.

If it's one thing I didn't miss as a result of the lockout it was rumours started by Eklund

Well considering the way he plays and his size he'd be great for Edmonton. Yak will no doubt put up more points, but he hasnt even played a game in the NHL yet. Dallas wouldnt do this deal either

I dont even get why theres so many proposals for Benn. Dallas had tons of cap space, and its not like Benn has said he doesnt want to play in Dallas.

Kulikov hasnt signed yet, why doesnt everyone go make proposal's for him... he must not want to play there

I would so love to see this guy in Montreal... Sincerely, I think Dallas is going to do anything to keep him and I understand he doesn't want to play somewhere with too much scrutiny by the media. But dayum I would love to see him with the CH... He's exactly the kind of player I like most.

As much as I'd like Benn I wouldn't do that from a flames perspective.

Someone show me where he said he won't re-sign. All signs point to him re-signing at this point, GMJN simply hasn't budged on his bridge contract yet. That's why he's not getting traded for anything less than an upgrade - because he's going to re-sign. And before you tell me I'm just making an assumption, you're all assuming he won't re-sign, and I'm fairly certain us Stars' fans know a lot more about the situation than you all do.

As an outside observer, I kind of like the Myers+ deal (maybe Girgensons). Benn centering Stafford and Foligno would be one helluva tough line to shutdown. On the other side you could have Myers paired with Oleksiak. I'm not saying it actually makes any sense for either team, but it offers some interesting scenarios.

Benn is good no doubt. he COULD be a 40 40 guy with grit.

I dont see you getting myers + for him tho

Myers = Benn in value imo

Oleksiak and Myers is just frightening... in a good way.

That 1st could potentially be top 5 pick. I love Benn as a player, and he would solve our #1 C problem, but we can't give away valuable assets and youth ATM.

Mark Giordano
Curtis Glencross
Mikael Backlund

this is what I'd pay, and likely be shot down. We need to build through the draft, and look for value signings.

You're kidding right? Neal and Benn played on the same team and Neal was far inferior. Yeah, he's a 40 goal scorer with Malkin, big ****ing deal. Max Talbot looks like a top 6 player with Malkin. Benn's probably a 50-60 goal scorer with him.
