In 08-09, we had Letang with 1 year of experience playing defense. Even though he wasn't a rookie, his position at age 21 or 22 is a critical one.
I don't get why some people get their panties ruffled about Bennett playing. The Blackhawks had no problem playing Saad last night for 21 minutes.
As others have said, you have to play sometime. Beau has showed a ton of composure. I'm sure he can handle 10 minutes of 4th line duty and more if someone gets injured in a game.
A lot of people forget the Pens had Paul Stanton and Jim Paek, two rookies, manning the blueline during the first cup run.
