Why wouldn't the Oilers, they have tonnes of 1st. rounders in the line-up, and won't miss another.

I could see Burke approaching Dallas about an offer sheet. I can't see Dallas really wanting the picks as their recent UFA signings indicate they want to win now. However, like the Kessel deal I can see Burke arranging a trade for Benn, rather then offer sheeting him as an alternative for Dallas.

The fact Benn has not signed yet is a bit interesting, maybe hes asking for more money? Maybe he wants to play in a Canadian market? Who knows.

I don't understand your signature, but it's interesting. Can you explain?

Until we find out that it requires 2 firsts+ so that dallas doesnt match. Then people go ballistic thinking its kessel trade v 2.0 and hate burke for screwing this team to damnation.

If true it would probably be Edmonton, Calgary, or Vancouver.

Don't see the Leafs, Habs or Jets doing it.

Answering for him, but its all the draft picks we have made and the team we would have to utilize if we didnt make trades or FA signings. The above is our place over the last few years in the league.

I'm guessing its MTL

Toronto is in no position to give up 1st round picks - let alone multiple. Until the goaltending situation is taken care of.

You mean his strong comments that there might be an offersheet being considered by a couple Canadian teams for Benn?

Oh, wait, the offersheet encouraged the Stars to negotiate so the offersheet wasn't signed.

Such strong, definitive statements.

Paraphrasing, there may or may not be an offer sheet.

Maybe threaten to offer sheet while trying to work out a trade?

Along the lines of MacArthur + 2nd FOR Benn

I would do it in a heartbeat...Benn can play center and has the size we are looking for, plus is young enough that he can contribute in 3-4 years when we are contenders (hopefully lol)

I think people should be sentenced with life long bans for posting anything Eklund related. What a joke.

maybe it shows how awful the leafs drafting was prior to BB coming to town?

I dont know, all of those players / prospects are underwhelming

If we are looking at this as a trade situation i would not be against MacArthur,Komisarek(for salary reasons), Scrivens, 2 seconds in the next drafts for Benn and Campbell

How much worse could the team have been had they done absolutely nothing except play the players left behind by JFj, considering they were 2nd. worst in the league after signing UFA's, making trades etcetera. Two of those players have not played in the NHL, Vorobiev and Komarov.

Then you add into the prospect ranks the prospects that could have been drafted, in the top 3 over the past 3-4 years. Those picks could have included two-three of Stamkos, Tavares, Doughty, RNH, Hall, Seguin, Yakupov along with the picks from subsequent rounds.

A tank would have been easier, and results not a great deal worse with much less cost.

I guess by now I shouldn't be surprised at how dense our fanbase can be.

Benn would solve our #1C problem and would work well in Carlyle's system, but I'm pretty sure Dallas matches anything. He's the future of the Stars franchise. Not to mention Burke has already said that offer sheets are last resort for him and even then, he'll let the team know about his intentions.

Of course, that is if the world is coming to an end, hell freezes over, the Blue Jackets win the Stanley Cup, and Eklund is right about something.

Of course you wouldn't be against that trade. Joey N over there in Dallas would hang up as soon as Burke finishes offering that package.

I doubt that gets you Benn. He is much more valuable than Mac and a 2nd. Maybe a 1st and 3rd instead of 2nd, or Mac and Kadri. Not sure, but I don't think Dallas has any thought of letting him go anywhere.

There's no truth to this at all, it's an Eklund rumor.

That being said, I'd offer sheet Benn in a heart beat. He does it all. He's complete and then some. I'm a bit bias because he's my favorite player. Just watch this guy play.

He'd be the next great leaf.
