Benn is not used to playing with someone with Jagr's creativity. He always expects his wingers to make the simple play when they're stuck along the boards, but Jagr will sometimes pull something crazy like a centering pass through his legs, through the crease, and out the other side. Benn's play away from the puck has been highlighted, at least from what I've seen, by an indecision of whether or head to the front of the net, or to the boards as a safe outlet. As a result he's rarely in position to shoot when Jagr has the puck.
Jagr knows how to get open, that's why Benn can make those "perfect passes." Benn does not, at least not as well.
I think it's funny how first it was Ott and Burish holding Benn back, and now not even Jagr is good enough? Come on...
