Legit #1's don't just score points, they play in all situations and make the people around them better.
Benn is much better suited to a wing position with a solid center.
at thinking Benn is bad in his own zone. There's reason he's on our PK, and its not because he scores so many goals from there.
He's physically dominant, too, anyone with eyes can see that.
He's making Brenden ****ing Morrow look good right now. I don't see how that's not exactly what you just said.
Just because he's below average at faceoffs doesn't mean he's not a center. Steve Ott was never a center, and yet he's a beast on the draw. Chiasson, a
, and likely Benn's longterm winger, seems to be quite adept at faceoffs, so there's that problem solved.
And if Kari isn't elite, then there isn't an elite goaltender in the league.
Why don't you get back to us after you decide to actually watch some Stars' games not from '09-'10?
