Fan Poll Friday: Would You Trade Sam Bennett?

New, comment

Is it time for the Flames and Bennett to break it off?

Fan Poll Friday

Sam Bennett just finished up his 3rd pro season and saw his point totals (26) stay the same as they were in 2016-17. The only problem is he played all 82 games this year and that point total is 10 points short of his best point total (36) from 2015-16.

Bennett bounced around the lineup and never really found a permanent/successful home. The Flames have no picks in the first 3 rounds of the draft and they need a few. Is Bennett a piece the Flames could/should move to recoup some of the picks they’ve dealt away? Bennett’s numbers clearly won’t get the Flames a 1st round pick, but he could be packaged with other assets to get Calgary some draft picks. He’s under contract for next season at $1.95 million dollars and that’s still a “bargain” for a kid taken with the #4 overall pick.

So, we’re asking you: what should the Flames do with Sam Bennett? Vote in our poll below!
