I've fixed a lot of bent pins, but I find when they get too bent, the stress of bending them way back to where they came from can break them. I count 7 bent pins and i'd say you'll be lucky if you can fix it.. or very skilled :P For 20$ though I'd go for it if the board is a high end model.
edit: Pick up a dental pick, and it can be usefull to have 2 if you need to bend at the middle of the pin.
