Yes. Benn is a proven commodity, Jones isn't.

Interesting.
Personally, I know it may be a bit too early to say, but I can see Roy being a 1B center here for the next good while.
I'd really rather shoot for a #1 D.

Not only that, but Toronto + Jamie Benn might make it a lot tougher for that 1st to be in Seth Jones territory.

Thought about this for a couple months now, and I'd probably agree. I'm sure many would disagree though.

Depends on how he does this season. He definitely could be a 1B guy though.

I don't want to get too far ahead of myself with Roy, but I wouldn't be disappointed to see him as the 1B, if he's giving Dallas what we know he's capable of. He's healthy now and has always had highend skill, there's no reason to think he can't find his true form for the next 5 years at least.

Every team that doesn't make the playoffs has an equal shot at #1 and we all know the Leafs won't make the playoffs

^ That's not how the system works.

Roy is a #2. The Sabres tried to make him a #1 and we see how that turned out.

Hypothetically swapping Benn for Jones makes no sense because then you don't have a #1 center, which is just as difficult to acquire. There are no #1 center prospects in the organization. And then you have to wait for Jones to develop so you've kicked the time-to-compete window a couple of more years down the road.

I can't say this 100% because I didn't pay extremely close attention to the draft details, but I'm pretty sure that there's just a chance, even if a very small one, that any team that fails to make the playoffs can get the top spot.

I would guess that the odds of the team at, say, #14 winning the lottery would still be as low as they were before, but just that instead of moving up to 11th or whatever that team moves up to first.

I doubt the really, really bad teams would have ever approved of a system in which there was a completely equal shot at the first overall.

Ah ok, for some reason I thought I read somewhere that this season all non-playoff teams had an equal shot at #1. I'm off.

the odds still stay the same, just any team can move to first from whatever position. But say we finish 14th, the odds are like around 1% if that. Since 1990 i think only 3 teams have won the lotto outside of the bottom 5. Those teams were 7, 7 and 8 i think. Very, very rare for a team 10-14 to win the lotto

On of two things is happening with Antoine Roussel going down. It's usually the simplest explanation, and that would be Texas only has 11 forwards. They're playing again tonight, and they need another body. However, they honestly could easily just sign a ECHL or CHL player to a PTO for 1 game. They've done it in the past.

The second reason would be opening a roster spot for Jamie Benn. As soon as he signs, I believe they'd have to have an open spot. Before this move, they didn't. Benn would doubtfully play ... I am inclined to say no chance ... but they'd need a roster spot for him.

Just realized Jordie Benn is Jamie's brother, that is pretty funny on multiple levels. I guess there is not question who is the better JB in the home

This, will this guy just sign already? I would rather not risk starting Schenn in place of him.

Seriously, I made a post on the previous page about it and people just keep going. The people on this site for other teams are the reason why I almost never venture onto the other parts of the boards. Go ahead and read the thread to see if there's progress, but what is compelling these people to post one after another with some variation "I need him for my team! Lol"?

Been talking through this entire time. Would be shocked if he's not signed by Monday.
