Free Agent notes involving Del Zotto, Benn, Perry, Subban and Vandermeer

  • Mike Heika via twitter: Jamie Benn (RFA) is the only unsigned Stars player.

    “We’ve had talks with Jamie for a year and a half, so we know the parameters,” Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk said Tuesday. “We’ve made it clear to them that it is a priority for us, and I think Jamie knows we want him in camp…It’s important, but time will dictate whether it gets done.’’

    Benn could get a new contract in the $5 to $6 million range.

  • James Mirtle via twitter: Mirtle has heard that Corey Perry would have seriously considered joining his former GM when he became a UFA at the end of this season.
  • Chris Stevenson of the Toronto Sun: There was talk out of Montreal on Tuesday that P.K. Subban’s  camp could be looking for a contract similar to Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. Doughty signed an 8 year, $56 million deal last year.
  • Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area: The Sharks are one of several teams to have contacted free agent defenseman Jim Vandermeer. The Canucks could be a more likely destination for Vandermeer.

    PK Subban is definitely not Drew Doughty. He hasn’t proven anything yet to be worth that much. What’s wrong with these people?
