There's literally no way Jordie is a healthy scratch, right?
Am absolutely convinced they used playing with Jordie as a tactic to get him to sign.

Why is that sickening? Otter loved this team and was a fan favorite. Some people might not want to dish out the cash for a new jersey. Doesn't mean they don't accept the fact he's not a Star anymore

Meh, some people can't afford to replace the jerseys. I doubt it's "moving on" moreso than "Why should I buy one of these ugly uniforms when they're getting new ones next season"

He only has a limited NTC in the final year so they won't get caught up in a Brad Richards situation if they need to trade him. I'm guessing it'll allow him to list several (5 to 10) teams at the beginning of the year he won't accept a trade to.

That's amazing news, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop on the Dreaded Dallas NTC (DDNTC) and that's not so bad. Not as great as no NTC at all but having 20 teams to trade with is pretty excellent.

Why the hell wouldn't Benn play on Saturday? On the radio he just said he wouldn't be in the line up until Monday. Can they not get the paperwork done in three damn days?

Immigration issues is what they're saying. No idea how long that takes.

Took several days for Ribiero when he got traded here. It's the INS, they're not that efficient.

Which is sad because that means it's going to be Dillion or (gulp) Larsen.

Just a thought, but maybe this is simply spin and PR from a carvinal barker like Lites after a tough negotiation, making it sound like they were singing kumbaya at the end when there was really more to the way it ended, maybe a take it or leave it kind of offer to break the stalemate. We'll probably never know and it doesn't matter, Benn's back and he's here for five years.
