Jamie Benn has an idea how to determine Alexander Radulov's next home.

After Pierre Lebrun of TSN reported that the Dallas Stars and Montreal Canadiens were the finalists to land the highly coveted free agent forward, the Stars captain offered to determine Radulov's new home with a game of bubble hockey against his brother Jordie.

Jordie Benn, a defenseman for the Canadiens, was Radulov's teammate for 13 regular-season games and six Stanley Cup Playoff games last season after being traded by Dallas to Montreal on Feb. 27.

Radulov is one of the highest profile free agents who have not signed with a new team yet.

The Benn vs. Benn bubble-hockey game went overtime before Radulov accepted a five-year, $31.25 million contract with the Stars on Monday.
