I wasn't completely sold on Benedict's peak, but his success across a wide variety of team and league situations is noteworthy. I discount his Ottawa dynasty years due to obvious team factors, but his Montreal years validate his individual ability. Then the compilation aspect kicks in, which is a weak spot for most of the candidates here.

I agree that the lengthy 40s debate may have sidelined other important discussions. This is exactly the sort of situation that made it wise to reduce the number of inductees per round.
