He's the smartest player on the ice whenever he's on the ice aside from a handful of players in the league, all at the tender age of 19.

Right now Benn > RNH. But in 2 years or so I think RNH could/should surpass him.
Actually Hopkins faced tougher competition by a little last season according to the player usage charts. Benn did have a tougher ZS by a fair bit though. So yeah he did play tougher minutes but not in terms of competition and it wasn't by a huge margin.
