At 22 years old, Bennett should have bulk up.

Bennett is:
-small
-slow
-not offensive
-not defensive
-has leadership
So what we can glean from this is that Bennett is a tiny, slow skating junior without offensive or defensive abilities. Huh! That's about as far off the mark as you can get.

I'm no Dehaan fan, but it's quite unfair to be declaring him to be a bust too. Missed f last season with injury...this is really only his second pro season. What many on here fail to keep in mind is that the average NHL dman doesn't become a regular in 24-25 years of age.
