Hmmm ... Benn's salary this season is $4.5 million. That's higher than I thought it would be. No word if it's pure salary or if there is a signing bonus involved.

LeBrun reports: $4.5, $5.0; $5.25; $5.75; $5.75

What do you guys figure your lines will look like with Benn back?

I think Gully will still try Whitney and Jagr with him. I think the idea of playing Eriksson and Roy together now was so that you get those two up and running.

Whitney-Benn-Jagr
Eriksson-Roy-Ryder
Morrow-Fiddler-Nystrom
Smith-Eakin-Vincour

Until Gully nuts up ... That's the 3rd line I guess.

EDIT: He'll also be the star of the 2nd PP unit.

**This is where the debate starts**
(If it was me)
Smith-Eakin-Garbutt
Nystrom-Fiddler-Morrow/Vincour/Wandell

Sometime this season it will be Loui - Benn - Jagr, but maybe not right away. Probably start with Whitney and Ryder. But its anyone's guess right now

I don't see how you can split up Eriksson and Jagr.

GMJoe is on 1310 right now by the way. He just said they plan on having Roy long term.

Smith has had some flashes already. Howard completely stole a highlight reel first NHL goal from him a couple days ago.

That's been the company line since they traded for him. The relationship between the team and the player seems good though so now hopefully Roy shows up consistently on the ice and they get a deal done.

Looks like we pretty much agree. I would actually prefer Nystrom on the third line.

Now let's do PP lineup with Benn back. Here are Gully's ideal PP units:

Morrow-Benn-Whitney
Goligoski-Robidas

Loui-Roy-Jagr
Daley-Robidas (double shifting)

Yep. Let's hope Roy appreciates those checks he was getting during the lockout. All the interviews he's given sound like he wants to be here. UFA's keep getting overpaid now though. Hopefully the new cap changes it though. I really like Roy so far.

But Morrow isn't double shifted!

Being serious for a second ... Gulutzan has said he wants Whitney on the point. I think you'll see:

Morrow-Benn-Jagr
Goligoski-Whitney

Eriksson-Roy-Ryder
Daley-Robidas

What you probably should see:

Eriksson-Benn-Jagr
Goli-Whitney

Smith-Roy-Ryder
Daley-Larsen

I`ve really liked his game too. He`s not exactly racking up the point, but he`s been pretty tenacious on the puck and a great skater. Should benefit with the top D focusing on Benn.

Nothing really shocking but during post game, Nieuwy said they were going to open talks with him soon and that he has really enjoyed it here so far.

Obviously said he was their top priority going into UFA.
