I don't think it's a fail to see Bennett start on the 3rd line. He's 21 years old making his NHL debut, there's no reason to give him top 6 minutes yet. We didn't give Despres top pair minutes last year or this year.

It's letting the player get comfortable, giving him a cup of coffee in the NHL, he will gets shifts in the top 6.

i'm sure Bylsma knows Bennett was drafted to be a top 6 forward, that doesn't mean you put him there from the start.
