The Vancouver Canucks have their eyes on the stars.

General manager Jim Benning was on TSN 1040 in Vancouver on Thursday, where he didn't hold back, stating his club has interest in Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban.

"Yeah, we've been one of the teams that have talked to them," Benning said. "It's a high price, he's a true No.1 defenseman."

Before Canucks fans get too ahead of themselves, Benning isn't close to a deal for the former Norris Trophy winner.

"We do our due diligence, but it's a long ways from completing a deal like that," said Benning.

The GM didn't stop there, also noting the club will talk with pending unrestricted free agent, Steven Stamkos.

"He's gonna have lots of interest across the league," Benning said. "But we'll talk to him and see where it goes."

Suffice it to say it's going to cost a pretty penny if the Canucks hope to acquire one or both of the NHL's biggest stars.
