Possible rumour of a Jamie Benn offer sheet from Canadian team

This is a rumor from "he who shall not be named". But, if there is ANY legs to this I'd certainly hope Burke and Co. are in on this. Other than the Schenn deal it's been a pretty quiet summer for the Buds, during a time when I'd say it's safe to say a lot of us expected some "work" to be done.

Thoughts?

Burke won offersheet after the Penner situation. The Kessel trade proves this.

Doubt that it's Burke. That would mean he is trying to make the team better somehow......

If by some miracle, we acquire Benn, it will be a coup.

He is a great player. 63 points last year, can play center, only 23 years old.

No - He will talk to the manager before hand, try and work a deal out, and if nothing can be had, he will advise that he is making an offer.

That is what his gripe was, that he got caught off guard and stabbed in the back (seemingly) by his 'friend'. He was a baby about it, but my point stands, it doesn't preclude him from making an offer.

If this has any truth to it, I wouldn't be surprised if it's Calgary

If you actually read the post bud I actually mentioned that. Just because it's an "eklund rumor" doesn't mean its not a good launching point for a discussion in an off season that's been ultimately boring for us.

This has Lowe's fingerprints all over it...

Burkes already picked out the barn and is training Neiwendyk as we speak...

Tambo vs Niewendyk!!

Lowe vs Burke as the undercard!!

While I'd love to see Jamie Benn in a Leafs uniform, I'm highly skeptical given the source.

However, can you imagine the top-6?

Lupul-Benn-Kessel
JVR-Grabovski-Kulemin

(I'm not 100% on the wings that Kulemin/JVR play regularly)

It would take over 6.8 for dallas not to match.

@hotlanta - that's interesting, where did you get that number?

On a side note to everyone (sorry for the tangent): Anyone know what the heck is going on with the post counts? Mine used to be in the thousands and is now stuck at 56(edit)....

I'd happily accept the Leafs giving up two first round picks, a second and a third for Jamie Benn.
