Oh hey, no big deal…

Old news at this point, but Jamie Benn signed an 8 year contract extension with the Dallas Stars!

$76 million, or an AAV of $9.5 million. Which falls right between the $8.5 million deal Stamkos received in Tampa Bay, and the $10 million LA’s Anze Kopitar will be receiving.

We’re also being spared the agonizing speculation that Lightning fans were subject to for the past year, since Benn signed his extension a year before he hit free agency.

Now that that particular piece of off-season business is out of the way, we can focus on the important stuff. Like trading for Ben Bishop… (We kid…but for real, please?)

Anyways, here’s to 8 more years of The Captain doing his thing!
