He asked when is he eligible for UFA.

After 4 seasons, so 2016.

It's not cheap to buy up years of UFA status so if Dallas wants a 6-7 year deal benn would be looking for ballbark figure 6.5 to 7.0 a year.

Even if Benn is a stud.. 7 mill for him is just too much.

I agree but someone would give it to him on a open market.

Only when he hits the open market. There are still many things that have to be realized before he becomes the kind of player to command that price.

True. I wonder if it drags on into the season if the stars look at trade options.

They'll get shafted if they try doing it mid-(shortened) season.

Too much now.

Benn would grow into a contract. If Benn becomes a consistent 80+ point player, he'd absolutely be worth 7 million. People were complaining about the contracts Stamkos, Kessel, and Lucic got but they're worth it now.

Living up to Lucic's 4m or Kessels 5.5m is a hell of a lot easier then 7m.
Stamkos is not even close to a comparable.

The Stars need to resign this guy even if the price is a little too high. Lots of talent in this young player just to get rid of.

He should be able to get over 6 if he wanted, hes far better than Zajac and Lupul.

yeah Lupul and Zajac are more high end second line players or low end 1st line players while Benn is young and already a proven 1st line player you can literally build a team around... i say if he WANTED he could get 7 x 7 but since he's an RFA not a UFA it should be closer to 6 x 6.

Sorry it would have to be a 5th instead of a 3rd.

Does he care what he's doing to his team? Dallas really could have used him tonight.
