If Bennett earns the spot, he earns the spot. I think he's ready for the NHL, he's 6'1"/6'2" almost 210 lbs. He's 21 years old with some NCAA and AHL hockey. If he's better than Jeffrey or Tangradi, you give him that spot.
He's not too young or too inexperienced for the NHL, the Pens management and coaching just has to see how he plays at the highest level.
I look at Jordan Eberle for example, he's 22 and entering his 3rd season, he's 5'11" and 184 lbs. He's a valuable winger on the Oilers, he was drafted 22nd overall in 2008 and made the Oilers at age 20 in 2010. Not saying Bennett will have the same path as Eberle, but there's no reason to send him back to WBS if he flourishes at Pens camp with Crosby or Malkin.
