Benny is a wicked hockey player with good size and great skill, but he needs to work on his defensive game and work ethics. He needs to be a better skater with more speed and more endurance. He also need significant icetime on the 1st or 2nd line....keeping him on the 3rd or 4th lines with no other offensive players isn't going to help him at all. He'd be better off back in Hamilton playing on the top line...like Pacioretty.
Now, since Pacioretty got injured....it remains to be seen if he'll be the same player he was before his injury. SO...until we find out how Patches heals and plays next season, we need to keep Pouliot around just in case we need another winger for the 1st or 2nd lines.
We need to keep this young kind in the organization until we've exhausted all options with him. He's too much of a talent to trade away or let walk away. We need to give him every chance we can before cutting him loose.
