I appreciate hearing from someone who obiously watches a lot of Stars games.
I picked up Benn with my 3rd overall pick with full intention of trying to use him to acquire Ovechkin or Toews. But the more I talk to people about it, the more I'm not so sure that I should be targeting those two. Potentially just keeping Benn for myself and consider moving Getzlaf or Kovy in the summer instead.
