Joe Nieuwendyk on Jamie Benn signing

Here are a few quotes from Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk on the signing of Jamie Benn to a five-year, $26.25 million contract.

On the signing

“It’s really big. We know how important he is to our hockey club. I think everybody in this building knows how important this is. At the end of the day, it is the right thing. It’s good for our franchise, it’s great for Jamie to be back in that locker room with his teammates, and tomorrow he will be.”

On the negotiations

“Sometimes these things unfortunately take a little time, and it’s a process. I think at the end of the day everybody wanted what was best for Jamie and for our hockey club and that was to have him back with the guys. I couldn’t be happier. I see how hard our team battles here the first three-and-a-half games of the season, and to add a player like him to the mix is going to be really good for our club.”
