Actually I was referring to Les Jackson saying that. He said he was hesitant to say this, but he felt like he saw Modano in Benn. That's not fair IMO.

I do think he'll have a good season, but the point still stands that the team seems to be putting a ton of pressure on him not just fans on this board.

So I think you misunderstood my post because I agree that Benn has work to do before being a legitimate Top 6 center. I just tend to believe he's shown enough to be excited and hopeful that he has it in him. The over-hype is the Stars fault though not some fans on this random board. Most people aren't going to take Jackson's comments lightly.
