Were 2 players away from finishing our top 6

1. Big winger ala Ryane Clowe which we can deal for

2. top 1C Benn or Getzlaf will fit that role and were set

Clowe can be acquired without a first McCarthur +

Unless Burke feels Getzlaf is coming here next year go after Benn and use picks

Then its grit on bottom 6 and were set

Burke won what because of the Kessel trade?

My guess as well. Losing out on Nash, Murray could be chomping at the bit to make a statement.

Lupul - Benn - Kessel
JVR - Grabovski - Clowe
Frattin - McClement - Kulemin

NOT BAD.

Benn for Kadri + Bozak + MacArthur + 1st + 2nd?

It's a typo. "Won" is a keystroke from "wont" and obviously fits in with his assertion.

I don't see it. If the Oilers are offersheeting someone, it's gonna be a defenseman or a goalie. With Hall, RNH, Yakupov and Eberle already in their top 6, Benn isn't exactly filling a need.

If any Canadian team were to sign Benn to an offersheet, I'd wager it's the Canucks. The Flames would also make a lot more sense than the Oilers, given their refusal to face facts and rebuild.

It's sad how perfectly Benn fits the needs of this team.

That means it will never happen.

Would much rather use those assets on a player like Benn instead of Luongo.

Would like to keep Bozak if possible though, shift McClement to line 4...

I included Bozak in the trade as a temporary "replacement" for Benn.

A little off topic, but I forgot Benn was moved from LW to C last year. Makes you really think if JVR is able to make the transition as well, what could be.

How does the Kessel trade prove this? They were going to offer sheet Kessel until they worked out a trade. If they couldn't work out a trade, they would have just offer sheeted him

Acquiring Benn seems highly unrealistic to me. He's their top young forward, why on earth would they part with him? They should match any offer made without hesitation.

You have to give something good to get Benn. Your offer is a joke.

Pretty much. He is without question the face of the franchise right now.

Wow, a rumour pulled out of thin air created by Eklund and this thread has now survived 4 pages? I am tremendously dissapointed in the mods. Today is a dark day for them.

Pretty nice in Toronto, so it was probably a bright day for them and they went outside.

A 1st and a 2nd from a bottom-5 team, a former 7th overall (who almost everyone here undervalues and who just gets thrown into any deal) a 47 point young centre and a 20 goal/60 point scorer for a young 63 point forward? Hell I don't even think Burke offered that for Nash.

I thought maybe that was the case but "wont" doesn't make sense in that sentence either.

Thoughts?
After staying away from Steven Stamkos and Drew Doughty last summer, an offer sheet to Jamie Benn would seem a little foolish.

It would have to be a silly amount of money for the Stars to consider not matching.
