the best part for me is Bennett looks great doing all of the non-offensive things. He can play 3rd and even 2nd-line minutes (imo) without being a liability. I think he'll need minutes with more offensively-gifted players if he's going to grow that part of his game this year (at the NHL level), but the kid's a keeper.

(Might quiet some of the 'omg we can't draft and develop wingers' talk)
