But only largely because (stupidly) Bennett is still a relatively unknown commodity.

I feel like if he had gotten a consistent role in the top six all year, we would be much, much less wishy washy about it.
To this point Bennett has never shown he looked like a sure fire top 6 fwd in the NHL. He was Ok in college, and Ok in the minors. Neither spot did he look amazing however and we surely have not seen enough of him in the NHL to even have a true idea about his future.

On most of the better teams Bennett would still be in the minors and not have even been called up yet.
