Training camp opens Sept 14th. Even if the Flames wait until Sept 12th or 13th to announce a deal with Bennett, I am good with that. We just need to be patient, it will happen.

Did not think of that.

I guess the deal could use some restructuring to avoid that, however, I still think getting him for 3yrs @ $3.5M would be fantastic for this team.

I agree it is a good deal. I actually think that is what the Flames will have to do to get Bennett to sign that kind of deal. Makes sure that he either gets paid, or will get a fresh start somewhere else.

But the Flames cant just let him walk for nothing come year 3, so what I am hoping is that the sticking point right now is more about term than anything.

If its a short term (3 years) contract, hopefully it doesn't come with a NTC or NMC. If its a deal longer than 5 (unlikely..?) than a NMC or NTC is more likely..?

There is virtually no chance of this happening since Bennett will still be a RFA in 2020.

I'm reasonably sure you can't do a NMC with a player as young as Bennett - if it was, it'd be a NMC in the 3rd year of the deal. Wasn't Dion's structured that way?

Regardless, Sam Bennett has no case to hold out. He'll be at camp.

RFA years can't have NMC.

I was thinking he would no longer be an RFA near the end of his deal.

Well, if nothing to worry about because it cant happen.. then no worries and thanks for the enlightenment.

This is true but the deal could just as easily be structured 3.25, 3.5, 3.75. Result is he still gets overpayed to get the 3rd year.

You can throw these on the table and tell him to pick one.
Edit: no 1 year
2x2.5ish aav
3x3.5ish aav (overpayment to get the 3rd year)

Unless they can work out a long term deal which I just can't see.

I'm sure it will get figured out here. It doesn't make sense on either side to let this go into training camp.
