Fair for both parties. Shouldn't have taken this long to get that contract done.

Can someone explain to me why this is a steal for Dallas, ya he is signed for 5 years, but he would be a UFA at 28, wouldn't it have been better to give him 3 year at say 6M and that way you can sign him at 26 years old to a long term contract without the treat of him leaving, which allows you to have a little upper hand when talking about the next deal...

I guess Benn's agent just folded. Dallas probably could've signed this deal from day 1.

There's a difference, but it isn't the difference between Jamie Benn and Joffrey Lupul. The second contract isn't the same anymore, RFAs regularly get paid well.

We wanted the longer term. He wanted the short-term. The money was not that big an issue. He's giving up one UFA year and that is great.

Agreed. Don't think this was worth holding out for.

Same agency. And things are pretty sour between ROR and the Avs.

Don't think he will sign anytime soon.

Meehan wants to eliminate the cheaper second contract.
And PK and ROR are his guinea pigs...

That's a spectacular way to look at it.

Maybe JN said take it or leave it. It's not a bad deal for Benn. He tried to get shorter term so he can go to FA faster but didn't work out I guess.

but ROR no longer has the KHL contract.
Avs were offering 3.5? I think that's fair compare to Benn's 5.25. Maybe around 4?
I guess he could sit out since he got some money from KHL.
