How would Jamie Benn not be one of the ideal fits for a 4th/checking line? Two way player with a big body and nice skillset. He would be a hell of a lot more effective than many of the lower end skill guys like Kunitz, Marchand, Lucic in that role.
The Olympic team is always an all-star team, whether you like to believe it or not.
