All Jamie Benn

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

How do you feel about the off-season changes that were made to the Stars?

Benn: It’s definitely exciting. Bringing in a talented, young superstar like (Tyler) Seguin is exciting for our hockey team and the city. We definitely brought in some other players that have some experience in (Shawn) Horcoff and (Sergei) Gonchar, so it’s going to be exciting and I think we are definitely looking forward to this year.

Does it feel different? The team has made coaching changes and player changes in the past, but this seems different for some reason.

Benn: It definitely feels different around here. There are maybe five or six guys left from my first year here. It’s good to have Lindy (Ruff) behind the bench, he has a lot of experience, and Jim Nill definitely knows what he’s doing. So, as a player, we are all excited and ready to go.

Any thoughts on the captaincy?

Benn: I’ve got nothing to say about that right now (smiles).
