To some, the Dallas Stars are heading toward possible headaches, but the Dallas Morning News' Mike Heika laid out the wisdom of GM Jim Nill's plan.
In particular, Heika notes that the Stars are set to where Patrick Sharp's $5.9 million cap hit will expire when Jamie Benn's bargain deal is over, so they could basically send that money to their captain. The Stars are very much in win-now mode, which makes them a very intriguing fantasy proposition. Aug 30 - 2:08 PM

Jamie Benn has been skating more each week, but he's trying not to rush his recovery from double hip surgery.

"I'm skating three times a week now — it's just working on the edges really," he said. "Workouts are picking up, but it's still controlled. I get pretty antsy at times, but the trainers remind me that I've got plenty of time and just take it slow." Benn admits that he's anxious to be ready for opening night because he wants to help the Stars get off to a strong start. He also likes the additions of former Blackhawks Patrick Sharp and Johnny Oduya due to their experience and leadership.

Jamie Benn (hip surgeries) believes he's ahead of schedule.

"We still have a long time to go here before training camp and the season starts, so I am in no rush," Benn said. "I am going to take it day-by-day, nice and slow. I think the main thing is that I don’t want any setbacks. I am definitely happy with my progress." Benn is already skating while an earlier timetable suggested that wouldn't happen until August. He was dealing with hip problems for the better part of the 2014-15 campaign and still managed to score 35 goals and 87 points in 82 games.

Jamie Benn plans to stay in North Texas over the summer.

Benn would typically go home to Victoria, British Columbia, but he thinks staying put will improve his chances of smoothly rehabbing from two hip surgeries. "I've got one shot to do this right, and I don't want to mess it up, so I want to stay around all of the trainers and doctors and make sure I have the best care possible," Benn said. Despite his hip problems, Benn had 35 goals and 87 points in 82 contests in 2014-15.

Benn played through the issue for most of the season and he led the league in scoring with 87 points in 82 games.

Jamie Benn is one of the three finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award.

Like the Hart Trophy, the Ted Lindsay Award goes to the league's MVP. The difference is that the Hart is handled by PHWA while the players themselves vote on the Ted Lindsay Award. The writers and players both agreed on Alex Ovechkin and Carey Price this season, but they differ on Benn. The writers' third nominee was John Tavares instead. Benn won the scoring title with 87 points in 82 contests. Tavares only finished one point behind though and had 38 goals to Benn's 35. Tavares' Islanders also made the playoffs, which many Hart Trophy voters likely took into consideration.

Jamie Benn won the first Art Ross trophy in Dallas Stars franchise history.

"It felt good," Benn said. "It’s a little bittersweet, because obviously we’re not in the playoffs. But it was pretty special to see your teammates work so hard for you...The No. 1 goal here is to make the playoffs and just give yourself a chance to win a Stanley Cup. We didn’t do that this year and it’s disappointing. It’s going to be a long summer, a lot of time to think. But at the same time, we got to get back to work pretty soon here because it is so hard just to get into the NHL Playoffs. We got a lot of hard work to do, to go." The 25-year-old finishes the season with 35 goals and 87 points in 82 games this season.

Jamie Benn stole the Art Ross trophy from John Tavares on Saturday night with four points in the Stars’ 4-1 win against the Predators.

There’s no other way to put it: Benn needed a world-class performance and he got it. John Tavares recorded two points in the 7 p.m. ET game to extend his lead, however Benn, later Saturday, scored three times -- including once on the empty net, followed by an assist with nine seconds left -- to edge out Tavares by one point -- 87 to 86. Benn was a monster the final few months, scoring seven goals and recording 13 points in five April games. Even more impressive was that Tyler Seguin sat Saturday night. Cody Eakin rounded out the scoring with a goal and a helper.

Benn has now recorded two straight three point nights and has 11 in his last five games as it is obvious he is trying his best to win that overall scoring title. Patrick Eaves picked up two goals while Jordie Benn and Vernon Fiddler also found the back of the net.
