Yeah, you can see the actual puck skills Bennett has and glimpse what he can be in a year or so. But the thing that's impressed me is his overall play. He's aware in the defensive zone and doesn't just toss pucks around, making the smart play along the boards. And he battles in the corners in the offensive zone, and doesn't get pushed around.

I'd like to see him get more minutes than he's getting. He's proving he's not a defensive liability out there (usually the thing that gets rookies limited minutes), and he's one of the better skilled guys offensively.

Only way I want him back in WBS is if Shero goes all-in at the trade deadline and acquires two top six wingers, forcing a guy like Dupuis to drop down onto the third line, and forcing a guy like Bennett out of a spot this year.
