Just an FYI that Syl St Laurent from La Presse did report about a month ago that Benoit coming back to the B-Sens was a good possibility so this is almost assuredly legit.

Why people question a poster who is passing on something as random as this is beyond me, it's a perfectly reasonable piece of news that an acquaintance or friend would be excited about.

For the guy who is hand wringing about ice time being taken away from Wiercioch, take a good look at the Bingo roster this year. You are hard pressed to find anyone over the age of 25 which may sound great to people who **** about prospects all day but it's not an ideal situation for a professional team looking to develop these players the right way.

Benoit is a perfect veteran addition to Bingo and will help shore up the very green defensive corps there. He will be leaned on as the number 1 d-man as he should be. Additionally he provides a nice option as an injury callup.

Coming off a year where a very young and inexperienced group crashed and burned, any veteran help should be welcomed, not greeted with disdain because they're taking away icetime from an undeserving prospect.
