That was probably the best Benn video I've seen. Can't wait for hockey.

That was awesome.

Gotta say I think the highlight of him undressing Myers twice on the PK is my favorite.

That goal against Phoenix at around the 6 minute mark was a thing of beauty. And, of course, it's followed by the masterpiece in Columbus.

Very cool video!

I still love to watch that GWG against the Coyotes in Phoenix after they just tied the game with about a minute to go.

Yep! Whiteboard Willie saved the day there.

Yep .... voting stops at 7 AM Central on Saturday (It started 2 hours and 30 minutes ago FYI). Since it's electronic, the PA will announce almost immediately.

You'd assume, considering the work that needs to be done, the league would immediately allow trades and signings.

We don't have to wait until it closes, just until they get enough to ratify it, correct?

True, but that will depend on when the PA chooses to announce they've hit the number.

IDK .... You'd think they'd want to give everyone an opportunity to vote. I hadn't seen a report they'd close voting when they hit the magic number, but I agree that would be nice.

I just think it's reasonable to assume they'll stick to the timeline they've presented.

Don't really see the point in keeping it open afterwards, but okay... An extra day won't be that awful.

We can look at a recent example ... the vote for the disclaimer of interest, both times, lasted the full posted time, and we know those passed overwhelmingly without them calling the vote early.

I agree it sucks. This just seems like they way this will go.

What I can't understand is why the owners could vote yesterday, and the players don't start voting until more than 24 hours later. Plus, starting at 7 PM Central seems ridiculous. The majority of the PA, i'd say an overwhelming majority at this point, is in NA preparing for the season. Who is going to be voting at midnight on two different nights? You could have started voting this morning at 7AM, and then they'd have all day today and tomorrow until 7 PM Central to decide.

Oh well ... just nitpicking at this point.

This applies to Jamie Benn:

Per Bill Daly, there is no deadline this season for Group II's to sign or be ineligible to play. The Dec. 1 deadline returns next season.

There may be signings tonight but don't expect Jamie Benn to be one of them.

It could take a bit of time for #DallasStars to re-sign Jamie Benn. Trust me, Stars fans, they'll re-sign him. Too valuable to lose.

I'm sure he'll sign before the season starts.

Why is it unbelievable? I expect the negotiations to continue for several more days at least. Not going to get worked up about it until he starts missing games.
