Not saying that Benny is what made it happen, but they've put some faith in his offense and he's clicking.
Also note that the 6'2 200 lb winger has never been on a losing NHL team, as the Wild, Habs and Bruins were all well-over 500 with him on their roster.
And he was also the only one who made Gomez look good with his 19 goals-in-39 game half-season here.
He's now entering his prime NHL years, he's tall and can play mean. Plus he can speak French. I agree that he falls down a lot too though but he made that up with his one-punch KO of that Bruin a couple of years back.
I would have been happy if we had reacquired BennyPoo rather than say Armstrong.
I seem to remember bruin fans laughing at us for letting him go and not using him properly. That only lasted about a month and then they were talking about how useless he was.
