Personally, I think people are putting too much on Benn's shoulders. Not calling him "the new Modano" or whatever would probably be for the best. Not exactly the kind of pressure you want on the guy who will hopefully be your best player for years to come. I just think Modano could have said it better, but then again, Modano has always been like that.
Honestly I've never seen anyone say Benn is the next Modano. Unless they just mean face of the franchise, but no one has ever said Benn will have as great of a career as Mo, or be as good of a player.

Doesn't mean Modano has to hate the kid. I don't see a big of a surprise with fans begin upset that the former face of the franchise wants to be passive aggressive against the next. It's a pretty valid reaction.
