Both have very well-rounded games and are natural LW rather than forcing more centers to play wing. E.Kane's speed alone makes him dangerous.
Seguin/Benn and Seguin/Bergeron will have chemistry too.
E. Kane while quick, an excellent skater, is a prototypical NHL North-South player. To play on international ice you not only have to be a good skater, but you have to be a smart player. E. Kane has never impressed me when I've seen him play internationally, at any tournament, always underwhelmed... and you can point to the 7 pts he had in 2012 at the WHC, but the majority of that came against Belarus and France. Maybe in 5 years with more experience and if he develops some hockey IQ his game will translate better on bigger ice, but he's got a long way to go. T. Hall is in the same boat.
According to the IIHF they have already predicted that it will be a Sweden Russian final (Sweden takes gold) Canada and Finland in the game for bronze. (Canada takes bronze)
So, we may as well forget about it, the IIHF knows best.
