Pretty much every hockey player is shy compared to athletes from the other major sports popular in Dallas. Player personality in this market has very little to do with how the hockey team does in selling to the locals. If the hockey team wins fans come to games. If it doesn't they don't. It's really simple - Dallas is a winner's town. It is what it is.

Also, there's a difference between not wanting to deal with the media microscope of a Canadian market and not having personality. Benn actually jokes a fair bit on twitter and such; he's not devoid of personality and he's not as shy (in Dallas) as is being said here.
