Wow. It took them that long to negotiate THAT?

What a deal... It's already a bargain and it's only going to get better, hell of a player. I thought he was going to get something absolutely crazy.

Pretty much what everyone thought it would be. No idea why it took so long.

Nice to have the extra UFA year.

Now there's no way O'Reilly can keep asking for 5 mill. Benn is better than him.

Great contract! Benn is a player to build around, that's for sure.

Though I sometimes find Benn to be slightly overrated on here, perfect cap hit for the term. Now will he be a UFA at the end of this? Hope not for Dallas because I think it might take more than 5 seasons for them to put something competitive together around their core.

Jamie originally wanted a 3 year deal. Stars pushed for a UFA year.

Beautiful contract for Dallas.

When you get Jamie Benn for the same amount Joffrey Lupul just got, you've done well. Well done Dallas.
