A year from now Benn for Giroux may not be considered all that unreasonable. He's ahead of where Giroux was when they were the same age. It's just that Giroux put up a 95 point season on a team where Max Talbot scored 20 goals and the towel boy could probably get 10 and everyone's lost their minds over him.

I'm just saying a bit less homerific perspective may be in order before unloading all over the place over RNH's rookie season playing sheltered minutes with Hall and Eberle.

Tavares, Stamkos and Giroux have proven a good deal more than RNH. For starters, they've had seasons superior to any of Benn's, even when factoring in linemates and all around play.
By that logic, RNH is further along then Benn at this point in RNH's career..
