<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>biglite351</b></div><div>Because it is a horribly one sided trade. Bennett is not Hornqvist, never will be. Hornqvist is not bad, his contract is not a "burden", and he does not need to be dumped, at all. (Yes, the Pens need to move out some salary but that does not mean that you make a bad deal) Trading Hornqvist, Jarry and a 4th for Bennett's rights is insane, insane, considering his rights could potentially be gotten for the 4th alone. Then, signing Bennett to $3.75 is stupid, potentially worse than Jack Johnson stupid and we all know how people love to cry about that contract.
What part don't you understand?</div></div>
Hörnqvist at around 5 mil for the next few years is not a good contract, he has concussion history & couldn’t stay in our top 6 last year, he’s went through extended periods of time without a goal, Bennett contract may be a lil more high than what he will get but it isn’t far off look at Bryan rusts contract very similar. Not to mention Bennett is a former top 5 pick a few years ago, put him on a line w Sid and geno and watch his game grow
