All of the packages offered coming from Boston are better. A bottom six roster player, no matter who, Krug, Spooner and Subban have all been of noted interest and a first.
Fortunately the Pens aren't negotiating with you. Bennett's a 21 year old rookie on an ELC who's produced at a .5 PPG with a great all-around game in spite of little quality TOI and a not-back-to-100% wrist. Young players like that are never dealt for an impending UFA - there's absolutely no precedent for it, and no other team in the running is parting with a prospect with that auspicious a beginning.

Further, prospects like Morrow and Pouliot are generally ranked higher than any of the aforementioned Bruins prospects in independent rankings, so any notion of being automatically "outbid" here is purely subjective on your part.
