Would I trade Subban for him - no, but that's because I'm aware that I have an attachment to Subban as a Habs fan.

Other than PKane, I think it's tough to argue for anyone other than Benn as the second best in that draft class.
This doesn't make much sense.
You think Player A is better than Player B but you wouldn't take Player A over Player B. This based on superficial attachment? If Player A is better than Player B, once Player A comes here, you'll have no problem getting attached to him even more so than with Player B as you think he's better.


Benn is a center, PK is a dman. Demand/Offer determines who has more value on the market, not skills.

I wouldn't take Benn over PK because I feel PK has more upside. PK is a top pairing Dman with franchise D potential. That doesn't happen often. So far, he's also been very durable.
